Irish Cottage Dreams

I can't wait to see all the pics :)
A little bat joke for you below.


A group of bats, hanging at the ceiling of a cave,
discovers a single bat STANDING upright
underneath on the floor of the cave.

Surprised by this unusual behavior, they ask
this fellow: "What the heck are you doing down there?"

And the fellow bat shouts back: "Yoga!"


I can't wait to see the pics. No BATS...they are flying rats, I don't care what anyone says. LOL...chewy on a tray,,,yess...I'll bet that is so cute. Kitchen pics, I want to see. Billy brought me a new hanging light for the kitchen. It is vintage and has an med/italy look about it.


You are teh braves, toughest, most steadfast bat-fighter I know!! (are you certain this isn't a Hollywood stunt promoting the Batman film??) I can just see (and hear) you...ah, my suffrin' heart..(my favorite new saying!!)Right along with "run like a hare" HAHAHAHAHAHAAA!
Take care and can;t wait to see photos


LOL at the bat. We've lots flying round at night and the DH's mate who ,is a fully qualified Bat Finder (we nicknamed him Dracula many years ago cos he worked nights and now the name is even more fitting!), he came round with his bat detector and was very impressed with the selection round our house. None in the bathroom though!
Glad you like the award ;-)

Sweet Repose

Glad to have you back...love the bat thing...been there, those early morning encounters can be harrowing...got up early to go to potty (in the dark) and grabbed a glass of water, felt something touch my lips, lights on...the biggest hairy spidey I have ever seen (and survived)...well, you know the rest of the story...



Awww. Chewy looks so sweet. Aren't those hanging baskets to die for? I like all the little shops too.
The kitchen looks so cozy and warm. I would love to cook in there. Bread pudding, dumplings, soup, all those comfort foods.
You have been busy!

Oh the Kitchen is lovely!! I liked it before but
now I am in total love with it!! You did such a great

The pics of the town are really nice. I have to say they
brought little tears to my eyes. You all have the best
town in the world. It was such a wonderful place to be
and I will always have treasured memories of staying there.

As for the bat. He's kinda cute, but then again I do have
a dog that looks like a bat. His name is Baxter or "the Batster" :)

Have a great holiday!!


Your kitchen is looking great. I love the blue and white, it looks very fresh! Thanks for the stroll too! I loved looking at the signs, especially the dirty cars wanted. We had a bat at work last week that must have fallen out of his nest. He was lying in the drive-thru lane at the bank. He was on his back and kicking his feet in braod daylight. He looked like a baby so he might have fallen. They still give me the creeps! Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

Ah, Pam- I never pegged you as a person to have bats in her belfry. :) Your story-telling about the removal of our winged friend was excellent-- I'm just sorry you had to go through that. He's sort of cute-- in a creepy furry scary way, that is. I can't imagine dealing with having him lament as you put him in a bucket, though.

Some lovely photos all around. May your next weeks be entirely bat-free. :)


I'm loving your kitchen - it looks fabulous!

Congrats on your award & thank so much for passing it on to me as well!!!

Your bat story made me laugh - in our house any unexpected wildlife somehow becomes my responsibility & I have to catch & release it. The dog's dinner is very cute - I had a cat-on-a-plate today but she moved before I could photograph her.


Marcia aka Lady Collum

Oh, what an adorable little dog!! Chewy is the cutest!! So glad I finally got to see your page...was having a bit of trouble accessing it last week. It's great! Wonderful! Have always wanted to see Ireland, ever since the lst time I saw "The Quiet Man." :-D Cheers!!
