6 Hanging Chairs to Change the Way You Sit

I just got back from a four day vacation in Ireland.  What a wonderful trip it was, but I'll be posting more about that later and I still need to share all my fabulous Iceland posts beginning Thursday!  Today I'm going to share my latest Furniture Fashion article.  I share 6 wonderful hanging chairs that I wish I had in my home.  Hanging chairs look great both inside and outside the home.  Click on the link below to see the full article and images.

Monthly Inspiration: Game Day Essentials in Dublin

Game Day Essentials in Dublin
This weekend I am attending a football game with my alma mater Penn State vs. The University of Central Florida.  I can't believe they are playing in Dublin and it will be great so see some Penn State fans.  This is a win win.  Here is a list of some game day essentials for the game in Dublin.  

Also, follow along on my instagram for Ireland updates.

1) Celtic Jewelry
I've always loved celtic jewelry.  The Claddagh ring is classic Irish and how a woman wears it can tell you what kind of relationship she's in.
2) Green Scarf
This silk scarf is stylish and in a great shade of deep green!
3) Guinness
I'm not a beer drinker but I am not going to pass up trying a tall glass of Guinness in Dublin, especially after we beat the UCF Knights at the game ;)
 4) Irish Wool Jacket
I might just have to get myself one of these traditional cream colored wool jackets for this winter.
5) Wool Socks
And I'd pair it with some warm wool socks.
6) Penn State Gear
You gotta show your Penn State pride for the game. 
7) PSU stickers
I am not above wearing stickers on my face for the game.
  
8) Thermos
You might want to fill up on warm liquids.  This game will probably be cold.  Or you can just conceal your Guinness in there.


Anyone else going to the game? Also, I'm still looking for ideas for a day trip in the countryside?

Link Goodies #8

1) This is the best Ice Bucket Challenge by far.  I almost peed my pants watching it.
2) This ring is calling my name.
3) Here are 40 tourist scams to avoid.  This is a good infographic because I've personally seen several locals try to do this to me or others on travels.  They sure are sneaky, but most of them can be avoided by not bothering with people trying to sell you things, just keep moving. For instance, I've seen women trying to sell the rosemary sprigs in Seville. I don't need these so I won't indulge them.  My friend got scammed in Milan when a man grabbed her arm and put bird seeds in her hand.  She got a picture with pidgeons but then he of course asked her to give him money. Also, I would never allow someone to take my picture who requested it.  But I do occasionally ask someone to take my picture.  Also, always ask the price of a cab ride before getting in.  So many good tips here. Also, I'm not sure who in their right mind would accept a massage on the beach from a stranger. 
4) Here is a bit of wanderlust fuel for you.  40 of the Last Fairy Tale Towns Left in Europe.  While they have given a great list, I tend to disagree because I've seen plenty more story book towns in Europe!

5) 23 signs you might be addicted to travel.  Yes and yes, except maybe number 7, why would you say no to stamps?
6) I love the idea of camping out in a perfectly styled airstream trailer.  Here are 6 of them that you can rent out throughout the world.
7) Frenchie Fix.  Just a little cutie doing some cute things.
8) Won a pair of Sissy Yates earrings from a contest on the blog, You May Be Wandering.  Thanks so much Sandra!

Austrian Trinket Boxes



Austrian Trinket Boxes

Back in July I attended another large flea market in Regensburg, Germany.  This is fast becoming one of my favorite local flea markets.  I ended up buying these pair of vintage brass and glass trinket boxes.  The one in the left is small while the one of the right is bigger and has four little ball feet.  The dealer is from Vienna and told me that the boxes were from Austria and that they are around 80 years old placing them in the time frame of the 1930's-40's. 

I've seen this style at several flea markets around Bavaria and presumbly in Austria.  I think they are perfect for storing jewelry, rings, or little keep sakes.  The glass is very fragile and the brass is worn in spots. I love the look of them together.  I could also see creating a little terrarium out of these types of boxes. They could also be etched for a personalized gift!

I come come across these boxes fairly often in Bavaria so if this is something you'd be interested in buying, perhaps I could hunt one down for you, so send an email of interest.

Have you seen boxes like these before?
