If you’re on the hunt for some new bedding for the change of season, have a look at this offereing from Harvey Norman. It’s the Canterbury Tales collection, pillowcases are €10, the double duvet cover is €45. www.harveynorman.ie/

I’m weak for this, only because I could quite easily see myself hooking the little darlings up here if they don’t eat their veg. The very versatile metal kitchen hanger from Nordic House with 12 handy hooks is perfect for utensils and pans, not children - properly. Ooh, imagine it decked out with flower jars or fairy lights? It’s €33.50 from www.nordichouse.co.uk and they deliver to Ireland.

I’m digging the ergonomic design of this green watering can, it’s from Sostrene Grene, see their website for more outdoor bits and bobs.

Ah wise words from Margo McDaid. I love this Be Yourself handmade giclee print, she’s got it for sale on Etsy for €44, and she posts to Ireland.

We went made growing herbs this summer, most of them actually turned out alright, except for the basil. I can never grow basil. Anyway, enough of my secret shame, I spotted this fresh looking scissors that you can stick into the planter when you’re not snip snapping away. They’re from Animi Causa and they’re called the Peleg-Leafers. They’re due to hit the online store at the end of August, see www.animicausa.com for more info.

H&M’s autumn winter homeware is rather lovely. I like the simplicity of this bathroom set up. The shower curtain is €29.99, the soap pump is €7.99 and the toothbrush holder is €7.99. See h&m.com for more.

Foxford Woollen Mills, in the heart of Co. Mayo, is one of the last working mills in Ireland and has been weaving beloved throws, scarves and blankets for generations. They recently took part in the NY NOW® 2018 Design Ireland booth, Accent on Design. These throws start at €100, find out more at www.foxfordwoollenmills.com

My online crush this week is this terrific toucan ceramic pouring jug by Fenella Smith. Handmade in Portugal, she ships to Ireland and it’s €19 before shipping costs.
