Welcome to my blog

We moved to Ireland with the notion of building our "dream" home in May 2007 after purchasing the site earlier on that year. Mr C is Irish and originally from Limerick but he remains in the UK during the week, his job is running www.cruise.co.uk and earning the bucks that will hopefully allow us to "live the dream."

It's taken us almost two years but ground will be broken on the site by the end of May 09!! A lot of blood, sweat & loads of tears (all mine!) have gone into this project already, we left a fabulous house behind in Newcastle...and now for my Kevin McLeod bit, "can the new build can live up to my expectations and the old house we left behind"? I'm not sure...keep watching my blog and you'll find out!!

Mmmmm Eve's Room I'm thinking.....

This is Eve
{she is 5 and she's littlest sister}

This is Eve in her new room

 some ideas for Eve's Room

We already have the colourful gypsy chandelier, it was purchased last summer {more ebay - love it!} I really can't say who's more excited at the thought of it coming out of it's box soon....Eve or me!

I've been on the look out and scouting round for ages to find some fun and bright bedding to complement Eve's chandelier {and that doesn't cost the earth}.  I did see some things I liked at Vertbaudet but find it really annoying that they don't/won't deliver to Ireland.

However...da da da da daaaa...Zara to the rescue!! Delighted to find out that there is a Zara Home....it's on line....there's lots of things I like....for a fairly reasonable price....and they deliver to Ireland {not the cheapest delivery rates I may add, but free if you spend 200euro or more}

I Like this

and this
and these

 so does Eve!!


  1. Like all of it except for that bright orange throw (can see it's pink on reverse though!) - love the towels and stripe rug.

  2. Lovely colours, I also love the next website, it has lovely homewares too. I love bright colours in a bedroom :) Your house is really beginning to take shape, bet you can't wait to get the rooms painted and flooring down :) It will all begin to come together then :) You'll have to keep us updated on it all, I love looking at your posts.

    All things nice...

  3. What a seriously gorgeous chandelier!!! and I love all the bedding ideas. I just love bright little girl rooms. I will post a photo soon of these cute colourful polkadot rugs I just bought for my daughters room, they look great and I think you will like them :)

  4. What an incredible chandelier! Eve's room is going to be so bright and beautiful. I love the chrochet blanket too. Rxx

  5. what o house, it´s so beautiful. Love to se when it´s all done. Will be great!

  6. Gorgeous chandelier, adorable pom pom fringe rug, beautiful Eve.
