'Tea and Talk', by one of our favourite Irish authors, Alice Taylor. We are so delighted to share her newest novel with you. Alice manages to remind the reader to appreciate the simple things in life and invites you to her parish, her world, in Innishannon, County Cork. This is a special, warm and enjoyable read and we hope that you love it as much as we do.
Sealed with Irish Love - Irish Mug
Máire McKeogh's creations provoke a reminder of Ireland past and present. Her designs have been described as 'Fresh, cultural and nostalgic', evoking fond memories and celebrating the generosity and love of Irish friends and families.
‘Sealed with Irish Love’ is a creation of creative Irish gifts and homeware for people looking for a flavour of Ireland in their homes. Máire McKeogh hand-draws traditional Irish imagery - the village water pumps, the old cottage, old signposts (all seen throughout the Dingle peninsula where we live!) and the old Irish bicycle for example. She then combines these images of old Ireland with bold, geometric patterns.
Bog Standard Candle - County Down
Alix Mulholland works from a tiny cottage nestled in the Mourne Mountains of County Down and says that she has ‘tried to “bottle” all that is lovely about Irish life and Ireland's landscape and wishes to share it with everyone’. Creating beautiful scents is at the heart of their business, and Alix says 'there’s nothing quite like the power of a scent to bring treasured memories of childhood days or holidays in Ireland flooding back. We included this candle for you and we think that its scent is a wonderful way to bring a piece of Ireland in to your home whilst you read Tea and Toast and visit Alice's world in the parish of Innishannon.
Ursula Celano Tote Bag
The Ursula Celano brand is all about designs that say 'Ireland' and we have included her wonderful products in the past. She has some many gorgeous designs and styles that remind us of Ireland. We would love to surprise you with all of them!
Ursula's designs are award winning and have featured in Showcase Ireland's best 50 products each year that she has exhibited. Each of her designs are uniquely Irish yet contemporary. We have in the past included a similar Irish cottage tote for some subscribers that Ursula created with the old abodes of Ireland in mind - that still remain to be seen in our countryside. We imagined our subscribers popping their new book, candle, the Sealed with Irish Love mug and a flask of tea or coffee in to this tote and stealing off somewhere peaceful to enter into Alice Taylor's world that will bring you and your imagination to Ireland.
