I came across these Irish Mammies Tweet Towels in designist when I was in Dublin last weekend. I'm pretty sure every Irish person has heard all of these at least once. You can also find them on the Irish Mammies website here.

I hear that the Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure is going to be available at a Pop Up Nail Bar at BT2 Grafton Street (Dublin) for €29! You can doodle on the matte base with the water soluble Chalk Pens and seal your final design in place with the Mattnificent top coat. The kit is available on the Ciaté UK website (postage £16.95 to Ireland) and the Sephora US website but I'm pretty sure this is going to sell out fast as BT2 are the exclusive stockists for Ireland.

I though posting this blog from our trip in March would look out of place in the sunny May weather but as I look out my window the sky is not that different to the one over Berlin! Day Three saw is tripping around former East Berlin and past the Cafe Moskau and the Kino International on Karl-Marx-Allee as we made our way to the out of the way Stasi Museum. This is a must see museum and we spent quite a long time wandering around even though it is a modest museum - one of the items I was most taken with was this photo of a rather instructional school wall hanging. All in all a great few days in Berlin - hopefully our weather will mirror their lovely summer sun soon!

Day Two in Berlin saw us trooping to the Deutsches Technikmuseum - we spent hours here looking at the collections of trains, jewellery and suitcase making equipment, cameras, and a myriad of other exhibitions. in the end I think I was most impressed with the Aerospace display. After coffee and cake at the museum we headed towards Potsdamer Platz for some quick food in the Arkaden and walked on the the Neue Nationalgalerie. Standout here for me was seeing this Yves Klein painting which you really have to see to appreciate!

Having been to Berlin a few times now we decided to visit some places we had not seen before. First on my list was Galeria Kaufhof in Alexanderplatz. This was billed as the KaDeWe of East Berlin and it did not disappoint with a wonderful Food Hall and Steiff and Pippi Langstrumpf collection in the Toy section! After a look around Gestalten and lovely bagels in Barcomi's we headed to Alexa Centre to view the wonders of the Loxx Model Railway. All in all a great first day in a wonderful city.

I first came across the Crosley Turntable in an Irish Newspaper sometime before Christmas but I'm not sure where to source them online besides on Amazon. Still that does not affect the fact that I still covet the orange model so I'll have to keep my eyes peeled!

The Hours and having seen a documentary on Sissinghurst over Christmas I'm very taken with all things Bloomsbury at the moment. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw the Laura Ashley Spring/Summer Bloomsbury Collection. Have a wander by the Laura Ashley Blog for more great photographs of the collection.

It's a new blogging year but here are three of my favourite tree decorations from this year which will be on my tree until January 6th! We are just about to take down our decorations so I'm taking a few snaps for the record. I was most happy with these hanging ornaments I made in early December and this wonderful advent calendar from M&S. I think these hanging baskets might become a year round fixture - if only I could justify keeping these stencils on our front door - too bad I used washable paint!
