My name is Colleen.

My husband and I both have Irish links in our backgrounds.  We went on our honeymoon to Ireland.  We stayed in small B&B Inns and ate in local pubs.  Of course, we toured the Jamieson and Guinness factories.  Because I love fashion and design, I especially fell for the handmade lace and knitted items we saw in the many shops we visited.  The crystal and porcelain are divine.

Back in the states, I found myself drawn to anything Irish, especially those items that have been upcycled or reused, not just collected.  I began this blog as part of my master’s project as I work on my design degree.  I hope you will enjoy the journey with me.
