Obsession by CK...

Or my obsession with CK. Cath Kidston that is! Cath Kidston is a British designer, distinctive for her witty vintage inspired prints and simply to die for home wares. She is a must have for any House Mouse!

My house is speckled with little drops of Cath Kidston charm. I even enjoy ironing now thanks to my gorgeous floral ironing board cover.

Here's some of my fav's.

Escape to the Country...

Hello followers / fellow bloggers apologies for my lack of posts this week. Ive been hiding out in my favourite spot in the depths of Connemara. No TV, no Internet connection and shock horror no phone signal!

I guess you could say I have been to rehab, iphone addiction rehab. Yes my best pal has been switched off and firmly placed in the glove compartment of my car for the last week.

To me nothing beats the peace and quiet of a country retreat. The fresh air, the smell of the turf fire, BBQ sizzling outside the back door, which following the cooking of dinner subsequently becomes that of a camp fire.

There's nothing more romantic than the charm of country cottage decor. It's nostalgic, nautical, rustic and cosy all rolled into one stunning patchwork quilt.

So pull up your seats, benches and picnic chairs, grab your glasses of wine and join me for some rehab...

I've come across the most gorgeous little prints by aliette, a graphic designer from Paris. These are just a few that i've picked for my wish list. You can check out the full collection at aliette's etsy shop.

Any one for tea?

As most of you know I only started this little blog last week. A friend of mine had introduced me to the idea of blogging and I had planned to get off my feet first before telling all my girlfriends about my new hobbie. However after a lovely meal on saturday night where el vino did flow said friend told all about run that house. So im left with no choice now but have them all over for tea!

Welcome girls, I hope you enjoy!
