we’ve been on our holibobs travelling around ireland in our van - and had a real good time…

we got some mugs with our names on from a lovely pottery = Penny’s Pottery in Ventry (i loved Ventry the bestest)...

image

take a look at their site - they specialise in personalised named mugs and can do any name and post them out…

more nice arty stuff from ireland includes the wild derrynane studio which is in caherdaniel (another favourite place of mine)

and a shop called nest in kenmare - i wanted to buy it all!

i particularly love these bear pjs!!

and these great books by Nicholas Oldland (what a fab name!)...

A huge bear is wandering through the forest - but wait a minute! Who’s that he’s hugging? A beaver? And a moose? And a bird? And a tree? Welcome to the world of Big Bear Hug, a contemporary fable about a bear who has an appetite for hugging everything in sight - even creatures that bears have been known to eat.

and this is his second book about a moose’s unlikely hero-journey which is a lighthearted, contemporary fable that celebrates living life to the fullest…
