Last year Hubby and I spent our anniversary in Kenya, Africa. I wrote several posts about why were were there. But of course the post on this date last year wasn’t so much about our time with the great people of Dandora but about us:  A married couple, best friends and soulmates forever more!  I titled it Two Become OneContinue reading

I heart Kyle Lane’s Upcycled Chair Workshop

I recently had the pleasure of attending the famous Upcycled Chair Workshop at Kyle Lane in Clonmel, Ireland.  From the moment I first met owner Joanne Condon it was like I was hugging a long lost friend.

Spending my Sunday afternoon with Joanne and seven other eager participants was one of the most memorable experiences I will not soon forget! Continue reading
