Below are just some of my Instagram posts from the last few weeks.
From top left, 1. A quaint Irish village centre with this house that I adore, each time I visit, I like it more and more, 2. Throwback to my visit to Cinque Terre in Italy- one of the most beautiful places I have visited, 3. My parents having fun in the desert on their holidays, 4. Some flowers to brighten up the hallway in my house, 5. Umbrella display from a shopping centre in Dubai which my mum sent to me from her holidays, 6. Sunday, myself and my husband went out for dinner, it was really cold and this wee fire was just what we wanted to warm us up, 7. Almost Spring and the cute lambs are appearing, bouncing around the fields, 8. Planning a trip back to Florence Court House and Gardens soon, this was a photo I took of the Gardener's Cottage- isn't it pretty?, 9. An elegant swan I captured who was great at posing for me.

Shopping for the Home...

This weekend I visited Dunnes Stores which is a local Department Store here in Ireland. I hadn't visited in a long time and I was very impressed with their homewares. Over the past few years they have introduced new ranges including Paul Costelloe, Consider by Helen James and Carolyn Donnelly. It is more expensive but the items are definitely higher quality.




From looking at the above images, it is probably obvious that my favourite is the Carolyn Donnelly range as it full of pastels and floral patterns, all so bright and cheerful.

Pretty Palma de Mallorca

Here are some of my holiday photos from Palma de Mallorca which I forgot to share with you. Look at those wonderful blue skies. The Cathedral of Santa Maria is spectacular and a real landmark in the city. It has a nice relaxing atmosphere. Have you been to Mallorca??

Mixed Weather in Rural Ireland...

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I'm having a quiet one as I have the cold... The weather has been awful the past few days. Thursday it snowed heavy and Friday it was freezing. I didn't go to work Friday as I have the cold and the roads were slippy. I have over 40 minutes drive to work each way on narrow back roads. I'm snuggled up now on the couch with a blanket and a big mug of tea. I felt really housebound so went out for a stroll about. Here are some images from my walks over the past week...

This was my local road on Saturday.... nice winter sunshine but very cold...
This was a view out the window today just after dinner, it was beginning to get foggy and very cold. A lot of the snow has melted however there are still patches in the area. 


 More of the snow and ice...
 The flooded lake which was taken earlier in the week..
And a view back towards the village, spot my shadow.... Enjoy the rest of the weekend and keep warm and cosy wherever you are...

Most liked Instagram Images of 2015

So here they are the top liked images on my Instagram in 2015.
In first place is this beautiful photo I took of the coastline at Cinque Terre in Italy. We visited in late September and had a great time.

I am delighted that my second most liked image from Instagram last year was from Ireland and it is Glencar in County Leitrim. This is a lovely tranquil setting in County Leitrim beside the famous Glencar Waterfall, claimed to be one of the most romantic places in Ireland.
