While studying abroad in England I took a trip to Dublin, Ireland, with some girlfriends. We visited at the tail end of our Christmas holiday, so Dublin was still dressed for the season's festivities. I remember walking through winding cobbled streets decked in garlands and lights. We found this beautiful shop called Avoca in our attempt to find the Information Center (they aren't as easy to find as you would hope, by the way). It was piled high with brightly colored plaid throws, stylish frocks, candles, banners, stationary and yummy packaged mixes. An Irish stimulation overload, otherwise known as heaven! They have a gorgeous website, you've gotta check it out!
By the way, after soaking up the goodness at Avoca, my girlfriends and I crossed the street to a cafe that served lattes in simple white cups with matching saucers. They made little hearts out the foam. We were in love!
PS. I know it's bad to add something to an already posted post, but I had to add this little diddy! Thank you so much! :) Come see here!
