Little Red Fox creates....

As I'm sure you have noticed from the fact that I keep a link in the right hand column, I am quite a fan of little red fox. Has anybody been checking what she's been up to lately because you definitely should. She has lots of new stuff in her shop. My favourite items being the little wooden doll sets she has been making. Just check out her etsy store. Plus as a bonus she is offering 20% off as a christmas gift.

I especially love the little cases they all come in. Adorable.

Have you heard of them yet? Well you will. An all irish band that are currently filling the air waves. Perhaps you saw them on blas ceoil (bbc northern ireland show) a couple of months ago. They are a band I keep close to my heart so please have a listen and enjoy. Their latest single can be heard on the recent Kia motors Irish radio campaign and this online ad below.

Find the full song and other songs here. Also download two of their tracks for free here.

Here is another one of my favourites. Have a listen.

Amazing photo shoot and shop update..

Check out my etsy store for all my recent shop updates. I had a photoshoot a few weeks ago to take some pictures of some of my recent creations. I was lucky enough to have the lovely Emma Birkett on board as the amazing photographer for the day. The very beautiful Hannah, who can be contacted at, was our model for most of the shots. Make up on the day was done by Louise. Check out her website here. Thanks for coming down last minute Louise. All the photos were taken at a very pretty guest house in Dundalk called Ivy House. Here are a few of the photos so enjoy. Thanks to everybody on the day.

Bust Christmas Market - London

Firstly apologies for my lack of blogging this past while. I am going to attempt to fill you in with all the goings on with pure harte from the last month or so. I'm starting with the Bust Magazine Christmas Craftacular which myself and Hawk&Fallow took part in on sunday past. Here are a few pics of us selling our wares.
A few of lisa's creations over at Hawk&Fallow. Get ordering now to get some for christmas.

The beautiful christmas tree display created by Bust.
As always Bust didn't disappoint by providing lots of fun activities for all the folk who braved the freezing weather to come down and see us.

Thanks to everybody who came down on the day. Lots of fun was had.

Caitlin Rose

When I went to see deer tick play a couple of weeks ago they were supported by a lovely lady called Caitlin Rose who is not only quite charming but she has the most beautiful captivating voice. Here a song of hers that I like, I like quite a few so it was hard to choose but this one is called Own Side. She starts this video with a little extra song so it's like two for the price of one. Enjoy.

Crafty friend...

My creative crafty friend Aisling has just opened her own etsy store and by crafty I do of course mean that she makes things not that you need to watch out for her. She has also joined the blogging community so please give her a warm welcome by leaving a comment on her page which is found here.

Her shop is called Fickle Fibers and at the moment she is making gift cards, very pretty ones at that, see a few pics below but there much more to come. I believe some quilts are in the pipeline so I am definitely staying tuned for that. Best of luck Aisling.
