Goodies from Ireland & Scotland

Mom is back from her trip to Ireland and Scotland…left the 1st and back 24th September.

Stopped by yesterday and plugged in her camera to the tv to watch a slide show…big sigh. I want to go.

Am sharing a few of my gifts she brought back (Belleek is still in transit).

A BEAUTIFUL hand knitted sweater by Jean Cooke Designs in wool…thistle/heather color. It’s a wrap like with a snap on one side and a cool button on the other.

A pair of Donegal socks ~ 100% wool.

A silver necklace from the Wicklow Mountains ~

A pair of Thistle china cups by Luckenbooth of Scotland ~ which sort of looks like the same design of Duchess of England’s Thistle.

And an Irish Shamrock seed packet ~ I’ll have to find a pretty pot and try to grow them indoors.

And a wee bottle of Bushmill’s Black…me favorite whiskey. She and her friend broke into the other two bottles at the US Embassy in London while spending four hours taking care of Lynn’s lost passport.
