A very Happy St. Patrick’s week to you all. I’m delighted to be bringing you a product giveaway from Ireland this week, and of course, I couldn’t do it without the help of the very generous owner/designer of the products, Máire McKeogh.
Having lived in London for a number of years, Máire recently returned to Ireland and decided to give something new a try. The nostalgia for her Irish surroundings combined with a background in interior design inspired Máire to design and create ‘Sealed with Irish Love’. The images on the products, such as the windswept hawthorn tree, old Irish bicycle, village water pump and bird feathers, are inspired by Máire’s youthful ramblings and many road trips around the country since her return.
Be sure to stop by Máire’s website, www.sealedwithirishlove.com, when you get a minute. You’ll find notebooks, coasters, tea towels, mugs and more, and for orders under €80 you can have it shipped to the USA for just €7.50.
To give you a little more insight into the inspiration for Máire’s products, here’s a little snippet from a recent interview she did on laporte-bleue.com
My inspiration comes from growing up in the West of Ireland. During this time my friends and I would ramble around the countryside for hours on end and only came back for sustenance. I loved the change in seasons as there was always a new adventure in store but in my memory, it did not rain as much!. The designs are inspired by this time and provoke a certain nostalgia which I think many people can associate with.
A Sealed With Irish Love gift box (Value €45) which includes:
– A Sealed with Irish Love Screen Printed Tea Towel
– Bone China Mug
– A5 lined Notebook
– Pack of 4 Notelets
– and 6 Coasters
To enter to win
St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us (March 17th, but need I tell you?), so I’m going to obviously ask you something about that. I’d love for you to share a quick story about how you’ve celebrated Ireland’s famous holiday in the past. Maybe tell us about a memorable event or parade you went to for St. Patrick’s day, or a St. Patrick’s day you enjoyed in Ireland. No worries if you can’t remember something (I have those days too ), just tell us how/where you’ll celebrate it this year.
You can add your comment using the form below. Last entries will be taken midnight Irish time on March 14th, and the winner will be notified by email in time for the big day.
Disclosure: This is not a paid endorsement, just a really neat way for me to help one lucky winner celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
We have our lucky winner! Bernadette McNally takes the prize. I hope you have a very special St. Patrick’s day.
Thank you again to Máire. Be sure to stop on by here website, www.sealedwithirishlove.com and enjoy the selection of products and designs.
