Last week I was at Tinahely Agricultural Show, It has got to be one of the best shows of its kind in the country, and the setting in Co. Wicklow is stunning. I am not so interested in livestock which may sound strange to you considering that I live on a farm, but to those that know me well they will be more surprised to hear that I was at an Agricultural Show. But Tinahealy is the exception, I was there over 20 years ago and was delighted to return and I was not disappointed. There is so much to see excluding livestock that I had a most enjoyable day.
I met Kajsa Kinsella from Northern Shore Design Originally from Denmark her Scandinavia sense of design made her stall in the craft tent stand out from all the others, I was so taken with her display, the painted baskets, her labels and even how she was dressed herself, it all coordinated. The blue baskets and aluminium containers showed of her wares to perfection. Just look at the candle in the cookie cutter, Think of the hours of work that went into making the stuff for this event. I bought a "house" you can see it in the bottom picture. When I asked Kajsa what it was for, she said you put in on a shelf or anywhere and look at it and it will make you feel good, and indeed I did just that and it does make me feel good. Not everything has to have a useful purpose.
