The Christmas Season Is Kicked Off

Today we had our wonderful Christmas Spirit Fair at the Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely. All the stallholders had brought superb goods which they presented in the most lovely cheerful manner and we had a steady stream of people come through the doors all day long. I just thought I would share a few pictures from the day before I grab the hook for a bit of recreational crochet.

    We had a lovely afternoon and got some wonderful crafty and unique presents.

    Definitely the best Christmas craft fair in Ireland!

    Nic, thank you so much for dropping by. It was great to see you, I’m only sorry that we did not get to talk more!

    Sharon, I can understand how you can be homesick for Tinahely and the Courthouse. The day was really lovely with both the usual and the unusual suspects!

    Lanto, it was splendid indeed. We had a great day and the place was festive and cheerful. You would have fitted right in!

  5. That Courthouse is simply one of my favourite places ever and the Christmas decorations really suit it.
