Monasterboice in Co. Louth is famous for it’s High Crosses especially Muiredach’s High Cross. It is from the 10th or possibly 9th Century and really quite beautiful, and regarded as the finest High Cross in Ireland. The ruins are of an early Christian settlement.

It was back to Mellifont Abbey for these sunny photos. The 50s wriggle dress is light pink silk with ruffle neckline trim and bow. The swing coat is a fabulous pink and orange tweed, with bias cut pockets. A little pillbox hat finishes the look.

Budapest

IMG_3799

A couple of weeks ago I visited Budapest, what a great city. Castles, thermal baths, coffee houses…. so much to see! We visited the Castle and the Fisherman’s Bastion for beautiful views over the city and the Danube. It’s a great spot to watch the lights come on over the city at dusk too.
