"There's something sleeping in my breast
That 'wakens only in the West
There's something in the core of Me
That needs the West to set it free"

There is no where nicer than Connemara especially when the sun shines, I know you have heard me say this before but we all have our favorite places and mine is this rugged, westerly, on the edge of the Atlantic place where my kin are so deeply rooted we even have an area named after us "The Joyce Country". A few weeks ago I took these pictures at Dogs Bay near Roundstone. You can also find lots of nice images of Connemara both old and new over Here

Antique Apothecary Cabinet

We have had the most beautiful weather for June, which is a novelty for us to have days on end with blue skies, sunshine and no rain. In fact we now need some rain. I have been busy in the garden and generally being out doors," make hay while the sun shines" as they say. I have made some progress on my furniture restoration project because it is so much easier to sand out of doors and the whole piece got a good airing. Here it is all sanded. I now have to bring it to a carpenter to repair and replace the missing bits. Then I will stain and varnish it.

 I am missing some of the beautiful glass drawer pulls, Have any of you any idea of where I might source replacements?
