November - Granny's Cottage
There’s no place like home, and there’s no home quite like Granny’s Cottage.
Our November theme is all about our favourite comforts; a pot of soup on the stove, wrapping yourself in a handmade blanket, and settling down by the fire with family and friends.
While the great outdoors of Ireland is truly breathtaking, inside the homes of the Irish people can special too. For our November box, we wanted to transport our big Irish family to the comfort and joy of a traditional Irish home on a Sunday afternoon.
The country air is crisp as the days grow shorter, but inside, the peat burning stove keeps everyone cosy. You are barely through the door before Granny cries:
‘Take your coat off or it’ll be no good to you when you go outside!’
The kettle never goes cold and no one ever goes hungry, as Granny’s kitchen produces a never-ending stream of biscuits. Why is tea always better at Granny’s?
There’s no shortage of tales to tell, as brothers, sisters, cousins and friends come and go from Granny’s throughout the day. But, you will need to be fast if you want to get a word in edgeways...
Every table is adorned with trinkets, and on every wall a blessing.
‘May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire.’
We hope you enjoy being spirited away to Granny’s this month, and as Granny would say - don’t be a stranger now!
