2 today!

Happy 2nd Birthday/Blogiversary to my little blog !!

I’m in the middle of a bit of a revamp so apologies if you’re searching for things.  Let me know what you think of the 3 columns – I’m not sure about them, seems a bit messy?

I can’t believe it’s been two years already. So much has happened and so much has changed since my first blog post that I posted when I was living in New York. At that time I was dreaming of living in my cottage in Ireland with chickens and a veggie patch and spending my days crafting and now, here I am living the dream :o)

Thank you all for reading and for commenting in the past two years, I love to hear from you all as there are some days I wonder why I keep blogging but then I get one kind word from you and it keeps me going for weeks :o)

In the meantime here are some cute birthday related items I’ve found online.  The image above came from the lovely site of Amy Atlas.

Birthday toast stamp found here (I bought one in Avoca not so long ago)

Love, love, love this cake mould found here

And there are some gorgeous cupcake holders here

Number and alphabet moulds available hereCan be used for baking or in the freezer to make ice cubes.
Number & alphabet cookie cutters available here

and just look at this gorgeous cupcake cake tin from the same site

This I just LOVE!  Individual cupcake stands from this shop Vesselsandwares at Etsy.  You can even get personalised ones! How fabulous is that!!
