It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Standard

Things have been very busy for the last few weeks, with lots of glass to get ready for all the Christmas shops popping up around the country.

I’m delighted to have my handmade fused glass on sale in Galway’s ‘Granny Likes It’ on Abbeygate Street…now open!

You can always find it in the gorgeous Glasson Craft Gallery in Co. Westmeath, just outside Athlone.

And now, I’m thrilled to be included in Dublin’s newest retail outlet for quality Irish art and craft… the tasty Irish Design Selection in the Westbury Mall, off Grafton Street.

With so much making, baking and boxing going on, the studio became a very busy spot. Here’s a picture of my constant companion, and would-be helper, Pip the poodle!

Lunch in Galway

Standard
McCambridges of Shop St., Galway

Lucky lunchtime feasters!

Just the quickest note. Delighted to share my new foodie find…the wonderful McCambridge’s on Shop St in Galway.  Thoughtful food served in a great atmosphere by efficient and helpful staff! I had a delish salad with tuna, pine nuts, leaves including basil, and asparagus – more for a feeling of luxury than anything else – with a tahini dressing.
For those with a sweet tooth, there’s a very tempting island laden down with lovely-looking bakes, but I resisted!
That’s the good news. But the reason for my pitstop trip to Galway is to collect some glass pieces from the amazing ‘TANK Granny Likes It‘ pop-up shop on Upper Abbeygate St. The shop is the brainchild of businesswoman Rona O’Reilly, and no doubt her TANK emporium of Irish craft will be popping up again soon!
