I'm heading off to Dublin this morning to attend Showcase at the RDS. I'm really looking forward to my day, even though it will be a long one - thank goodness the new stretch of motorway has opened between Nenagh and Borris n Ossory - it will make a huge difference.
Oh - and before I forget - Nenaghgal is now on Facebook so do go and "LIKE" me - here's the link and I'll get a proper FB button up on my blog soon.
Another great business I found over in Glasgow - Marram Studio - started by Sarah Johnston back in 2004 under the name Digitata and then she re-branded and now it has a catchy new name. Marram grass is a type of grass that grows on the sea shore in Orkney near to where she lives and it is one of her many sources of inspiration.
Above are her linen tea towels - they are so graphic and quirky - ideal for an all white kitchen.
Her poppy cushion.
A darling little purse.
A striking black and white linen cushion.
A delicate fern design printed onto linen.
Here her poppy design has been used for a leather hand bag.
This was her stand at the Country Living Fair. It gives you a real feel for the range of products she has now developed. I love the colours don't you?
