Caught My Eye is a series of blog posts showing scenes I found interesting, odd, curious or beautiful. Sometimes, but not always, they generate an idea for a piece of jewellery or an ornament. I am not a photographer, so please do not expect top quality photography :-). But I invite you to enjoy a glimpse of the world through my eyes.
|Rathfarnham Castle, Dublin|
I visited Rathfarnham Castle in the Dublin burbs a couple of weeks ago. It was an excuse for a meet up for a crafty chat with Etsy friend, Mo of Huggleknits and an opportunity to see the wonderful historical costume and toy display (the Berkley Collection; well worth a visit if you are into the history of fashion and wonderfully creepy vintage dolls.) It was a gorgeous sunny day for sipping our coffees in the little park in the grounds. But just as I went to take photos of the building, the sun disappeared, making the castle suddenly very foreboding. Can't you just hear the horror-movie 'dun-dun-duuuuuns'?!
Hmm....perhaps I should consider Hallowe'en accessories this year.....
