Today I'm going to share with you what I bought. . . I actually did not buy too much. . . mainly because I have been several times and bought some stuff each time I've gone and because I was trying not to spend too much money on things I really didn't need (yes I realize the things I about to show you probably fall into that category of things I don't need but whatever I was on vacation and did need to treat myself)!
Accessorize is such a great store. If I had one here in Boston it would be trouble for my bank account. The fact that I walked out of there w/ just two items really is a miracle b/c I actually wanted about ten other things - especially a bag and a clutch purse.
I settled for these adorable ballet flats. You can't really tell hot cute they are from my phone picture but take my word for it. Oh and the color is coral which you can't really tell from the pic. I can't wait to wear them!!
Oh and these earrings. . . gorgeous! I've really been into big earrings lately and I just fell in love w/ these.
Kilkenny Shop in Dublin. I love cows and thought it was so simple and cute. Plus it was painted by an Irish artist and will always remind me of Ireland. I haven't decided where I'm going to hang it yet. Right now I have it sitting on a mini-easel on my kitchen bar and it looks really nice.
Kerry Crafted Glass. I love it! The colors are so pretty and it knowing that it is handmade makes it that much more special. I loved visiting the studio and meeting the glass blower. My aunt bought this as a gift for me and I'm glad she did! Thanks Cathy!
Bunratty Folk Park. The artist was in the shop and she makes everything by hand. I love supporting local artists and buying things that are unique. My mom and aunt both bought things in this shop too so we helped the local economy and that artist! Ha!
Peppa Pig who is British and according to my sis-in-law you can't find stuff in the USA so I was happy to find plenty of stuff in Ireland. I'm sure Peyton and Ella will enjoy all this stuff. I can't wait to give it to them when I see them next.
So for real now that is it for Ireland. I'm sure you have seen enough!
