The Kitchen is the Hub of my Home....

Is the kitchen the hub of your home? Well in my house, it really is. I am not the best cook or baker for sure but I do spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I like to think it is a country style kitchen with oak details and cream units. The canopy over the hob is french style and the lights are all from IKEA. I love the fisherman's lamp over my dining table. I generally burn Yankee candles in my kitchen after cooking.

Sorry the above photos are  a bit dull, it was difficult to get the light right when I took them.
Here is an image of the dresser in my kitchen  you will spot some Cath Kidston mugs, my Wedgewood teapot and some other accessories. My notice board is to the right of the dresser- you can just see the edge of it here.

So is your kitchen the hub of your home, what does it look like? What style is it?

Some DIY for your Outdoors

Have you enjoyed the beautiful weather this week, it was up to 27 degrees here in Ireland and it was great! I was in work though but enjoyed the evenings doing work around the garden and painting the walls. It has turned showery today and the temperatures are lower however we will remain positive that the Summer sunshine will return again in August. Below are some pretty stylish outdoor areas with some DIY ideas from Heart Home Magazine

A Trip to a Community Garden...

Have you ever visited Brigit's Garden in County Galway? If you haven't you really should next time your visiting the area. It is a truly magical place with such an abundance of natural habitats and gardens. If you like wildflowers like me- you will love it! The day we visited it was packed with people including lots of children for a teddy bear picnic. The car park was full but they had mini buses collect us from a nearby community car park. It was a great service. There is a lovely tea shop and gift shop on site. As you may have noticed from the photographs on my blog, I rarely ever have people in my photographs. I had a difficult time trying to get these photographs without anyone in them, hope you enjoy...

Hip Hip Hurray

Hello everyone! The weeks are flying by, everyone seems to be extra busy these days. From looking at my blog, you will notice I haven't been blogging much this week. I took a few days off work and spent it with my parents. What have you been up to lately? I have been painting and doing gardening. I'm glad it's the weekend again!

Ireland in the Sunshine...

Hope everyone is enjoying the Summer, the weather is a bit gloomy here today but I am keeping my fingers crossed that more sunshine is on its way... Here are a few images I took two weeks ago when we were in the west of Ireland. I am busy these days doing DIY and painting so will post about that soon.
