Craft central

What a weekend. I took a road trip with my folks across the west {or ‘wesht’} of Ireland and it was amazing. Until now, I don’t consider any trip within Ireland a holiday, but what I just experienced was a holiday. 27 to 30 degrees, sun, sand, impeccable weather and about 80lbs of food. It was glorious. 
We came across this adorable tiered mini craft cul-de-sac set-up, Ceardlann in Spiddal Co. Galway, and I demanded we stop so I could take copious pictures “for the sake of my blog”. Please note none of these pictures do the real thing + that fantastic weather any justice. The entire place was painfully adorable and felt so homely. 

I could have devoured the outside of this shop. It was my favorite, and was convincing me hits of yellow wasn’t something I would have to be afraid of – at An Spailpin Fanach {Irish language and culture shop}.

Lovely lavender shades …

Unfortunately, since it was early on a Sunday morning, only one of the shops was open – a basket and weaving shop – whose name I can’t remember / cannot find online! Sad face. The owner happened to be teaching a basket weaving class, so I took some sneaky pics {with permission, obv}. Happy face!

I’ll end this post on that sky … Very rare in this country. Hope you enjoyed your weekend, and if you’re anything like me, you’re looking forward to the long weekend already.
