Gimme Shelter

 What a cutie!! 

Ad says that this is an unspoiled original stone
cottage at the end of a quite road just a few
miles from town.  Sounds very quant to me!!

Old style cottage with great potential in a quiet area.
Very sweet! Add this one to my liste of favs :)

Back in the village

Today I was back in my old village to visit some friends.
I knew I missed my old village but I didn't realize how
much until I drove down the beautiful lanes and up the hills
to see those amazing views. 

I was only a transplant in that village but my neighbors
never made me feel that way.  So many smiling faces were
happy to see me today. It was a nice feeling. I was happy 
to see them right back. That little village will always hold
a special place in my heart.

Here are some memories from those days.....

~I could have wealth beyond my dreams,
But where is the joy in that?
And I could travel the seven seas,
But I would always come back.
Everyone could know my name,
And there would be no peace.
I could have undying love,
And heartaches still increase.
No, if I were wealthy beyond my dreams
(And where is the joy in that?)
It wouldn't buy friendship such as yours --
And there IS joy in that! ~

Happy Spring to you!!!

Cottage, land, floorplans?

Which to choose today?  They all have so many possibilities.

I am drinking my Irish breakfast tea, listening to Newstalk.ie,
and surfing Irish real estate this morning.  It is a nice day off.

I have been looking at a few really cute cottage/bungalows
and a few land sites for sale. I am not against maybe even
buying land with a derelict cottage on it that I can either
fix-up or leave to the side and build another cottage.

I do even have a few very old house plan books that I
could even possibly pull a floor plan from....

I guess, as always, it comes down to what I can afford.

These are just my rambling thoughts today.

Do you know of a cottage or house in Ireland that you
think I would like? .... or that you have seen on any of
the real estates sites and think it would be great for me to 
feature it here on my blog?

Here is a beautiful site I found today.....


It is pretty isn't it? I bet it would be a great
location for a pretty little cottage. I can see
a sweet one painted yellow placed there.

I am also working on a few more designs for my 
Irish Cottage Dreams Store... A few more T shirts
and a surprise item that I will post about later.

Happy Spring everyone!!

Something different...It's not an Irish Cottage!

Oh no! Not an Irish Cottage!

It's an Irish house boat! LOL!
