‘Fabulous’ Comments

These ‘Fabulous’ ladies and their families spent a week with us this summer. It was just a pleasure having all that style, sophistication and colour around for the week.


Go to their website and read all about their experiences here and out and about and check out their simply stunning ‘Dirty Fabulous’ vintage shop in Dublin. Not to missed for all those ‘Brides to be’.

It is a beautiful, sunny, freezing cold, morning here but no one seems to be in the mood for a walk. Don’t blame them mind you! I’m happy sitting infront of a roaring fire with freshly brewed coffee, buttery croissant and the remains of last summers raspberry jam. Bliss! Bon dimanche to everyone.
