Beginning to Feel a lot like Christmas

It's beginning to feel like Christmas already..The year has gone so quickly. I don't decorate the house for Christmas until later in December. Below are a few images from last year around my home. I have most of my Christmas shopping done. A lot of you will be out Christmas shopping this weekend. I look forward to spending time with family and friends over the Christmas break. I have over 2 weeks off work around Christmas as I save my holidays for a nice long break. What are your plans for Christmas?

Winter Fashion - Warm and Cosy...

We are experiencing a cold spell here in Ireland these days so everyone needs to wrap up warm. Earlier this month I went shopping and picked up a few casual tops for over the winter to layer with cardigans, scarfs and jackets. What are you wearing this winter?

Wearing for the Winter months ahead...

Gorgeous Greece

Here is a throwback to my travels to Greece which I never got around to posting. I visited Greece in August, this is my second time to visit Greece having visited Athens and the Greek Islands of Corfu, Mykonos and Kefalonia two years ago. I was so surprised at how beautiful Greece is, the islands are amazing! The photos below are from the small town of Katakolon on the mainland. It is known as the gateway to Olympia. I really enjoyed my visit here, the people were so friendly and welcoming to their town. The shops were really quaint and overall it had a lovely small town feel.

New Farm Kitten...

Hope you had a lovely weekend. It's a long weekend here and the weather is lovely and mild so it makes it even better. Last weekend I found a little kitten abandoned at the entrance to the farm. While there are several farm cats, they are all wild and the kittens can never be caught as they are so wild but this wee kitten was a little pet. Only that it was crying loudly I wouldn't have seen it. I don't know how anyone can be so cruel as to dump a wee kitten out at the side of the road. It appeared to have some blood around its mouth. Anyways, the story is pretty obvious- I took the kitten up to the farm as I couldn't leave it. I didn't think my husband would want another kitten but he didn't want to get her a new home yet as she is probably too young. I have named the kitten Millie- if it's a girl short for Mildred and if it is a boy short for Milford....
Welcome to the Farm Millie

One of the Prettiest Small Towns in Europe

Along with the Cinque Terre region of Italy, La Flotte in Ile de Re is one of the prettiest small towns I have visited in Europe. On Ile de Re every house has a strict colour palette which includes a choice of 18 shades of paint for the shutters and windows (blue/green/grey). All buildings are simple plan with red terracotta roofs. All houses are either white or cream and are adorned with beautiful flowers including hollyhocks. We visited in October so a lot of the flowers were no longer in bloom but you get an idea from my photographs. The old port area is so quaint and charming. It is really laid back with lovely residential areas. If you are looking for a really charming place to visit, check out La Flotte.
