Rest in peace

Last week I took a long overdue wander around Penneys. I saw these skull pillow cases for €6, and even though they were 50/50 cotton/polyester mix*, I had to get them. I was so excited when I saw them. Sad, I know. I prefer the gentleman’s pillow more than my lady one, but I’ll take one for the team.
Also pictured – my lovely new purple pillow cases from IKEA, paisley bedspread set by Ralph Lauren {on sale. Yes, yes}, and cute black sequin pillow from Dunnes Stores
*I’m picky. If it isn’t 100% cotton or better, I find it feels cheap. 

Charcoal rain

Inspired by local Dublin graffiti artist Maser, I crafted this drip painting last summer. It’s really straight forward and the paint does all the work. I originally made it bright green drips, but it was too bright for me, so I repainted it in charcoal to better suit my living space.
Also shown is our Dandelion Urban Gnome we picked up at a fancy Interior Design opening evening where the {pre-recession} champagne was flowing and this is the result of our drinking. Money well spent.
