As most of you know by now, I love nothing more than finding quirky all-kinds-of-everythings :)

I'd love to hear about any interesting blogs/ sites that you know of. Please post links as comments or email me!!!

I'm getting back into using the 'net again and need some online reading/ inspiration/ sites to purchase from :)

A Glowing Reference

According to infamous postman Michael Gallagher of Glenfin, Donegal, we are in for a scorcher of a summer (well a few decent days anyway). I, for one, am planning on making the most of the balmy evenings al fresco, minus the potentially lethal trailing cables of fairy lights etc, so I've splashed out on the most magical of candles - Glowglobes!

These fantastic creations are the brainchild of Larry Kinsella of Moth To A Flame, which is based in Bennettsbridge, Co. Kilkenny.

They come in a whole array of sizes and colours and are very reasonably priced and look amazing both lit and unlit. So far we've tried them indoors and we were wow-wow-wowedm - so we can't wait to get them outdoors!!! I reckon they will last a long time as it appears that the candle inside can be replaced once it's burned down (the candle which is lit is removabe from the bottom half of the "shell").

Fine Ol' Fimo

I've been longing for Lidl to get back in stock those portable oven thingys so that I can make and bake my very own Fimo beads. On a recent trip to the wonderland that is Yellow Brick Road, I came across the most delectable selection of these beads and being the restrained type of shopper that I am (yeah right!) I bought a little (ahem) stash and made what are, in my opinion, the cutest neckalces and bracelets. What says all ye blog-readers???
