A great new find ' Shady and the Lamp' for the light fixture obsessive amongst us (me!) . I'm loving how they contrast odd shaped clear glass bottles against strong bold colour shades. If I had a digs bigger than my current box I'd be all over these light gems. They also offer a custom lampshade restoration & recovering service for those shades in need of a bit of TLC. You can check out their handy work here or the old school way at their new real life premises on Francis Street, Dublin 8. Extra kudos for the great name too!

See for yourself here.

A colourful accompaniment to summer beach day excursions. Made from 100% pure Irish Natural linen by Chapel Lane who say linen towels are more absorbent, don’t hold sand and dry faster than cotton towels. Just in case summer 2013 is not a permanent fixture (surely not?!) they also make stylish bath towels, baby blankets, bedspreads, picnic blankets and couch throws. Available online here.
