Okay, I’m a bit embarrassed that I posted about Bloom’s Hotel’s mural the other day and didn’t even realize that it’s the work of someone I’ve met! (Thanks, Jess, for letting me know!) He’s the cousin-in-law of one of our friends and Jess & Kalle are lucky enough to have one of his original pieces that he made live during the Brownbread Mixtape show. But it’s a great opportunity for me to give him some credit and a proper shout out because his work is way cool. Here’s a bit about him. And here’s some more of his work:
Named for the half penny charge one used to have to pay in order to cross, the Ha’penny Bridge is one of Dublin’s most iconic spots. The toll was dropped in 1919 and the turnstiles removed and since then, has been free for all of us to enjoy!
We really like seeing this color sky in Ireland – even when it’s short lived.
Inspired by James Joyce’s Ulysses, Bloom’s hotel in Dublin’s Temple Bar now has some lovely murals of Leopold Bloom.
Someone in Dublin got creative when the wrapped this electricity box (or whatever they’re called! Whatever they are, they’re not typically very attractive!).
Our very creative friend, Sarah, was minding young Casper and Bo over the weekend and she created a real-life Gog (named by Casper) using the drawing Casper made of Gog as her inspiration. She’s amazing! And what a great idea!
Fintan’s valentine shared this very special little jar of “favorite things about Fintan” with him for Valentine’s Day. Much more romantic than a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates, in my humble opinion.
So I was walking home from a meeting early Wednesday morning and came across this little fella’. He must have been admiring the view. (That’s the Aviva Stadium in Dublin behind him.)
This is some seriously good use of a small space and the lighting is ingenious. I don’t think bookshelves like that would work as well as these do if they didn’t how the down lights underneath.
Now I want to paint my black iron bed!!
