The Irish summer isn't exactly known for its scorching temperatures and dazzling sunshine. In fact, sometimes you'd be forgiven for thinking it was already mid-October. But even so, these last few days, it's felt like the season is turning - the breezes are cooler, and the sun is showing its face a little later in … Continue reading Sweater Weather
Hey there everybody! And happy Tuesday! I'm doing a little bit of reblogging today... Well, how could I not share this? It seems like long-time BeastieBuddy Tammie Painter's little knitted tearaway, Finn McSpool, has been out enjoying the sights and sounds of quirky Veneta, Oregon... And luckily Tammie was there to take pictures! Thanks to … Continue reading Beasties, Bears, and Other Venetian Creatures
I really wasn't sure what I was going to write about today. I have a lot of things on the go at the minute, but none of them are at a newsworthy stage yet, so this morning found me (only a little desperately) trawling through my copious Beastie photo archive, plus ALL my emails, in … Continue reading Traces of Days Gone By
Everyone's Irish today... Or so I hear! And I thought this might be a nice excuse to revisit some of my favourite Barróg Beastie* pics from the past year. But, for a little bit of Paddy's Day fun, it's up to you to decide who is the most Irish Irish Beastie of them all - … Continue reading Happy St Patrick’s Day!
Well lookee here! It's Tuesday again, and in keeping with BeastieBlog tradition, I've some new Beasties for you to meet today - although I think a few of you might already have caught these two little lady monsters on social media over the weekend... ... But this is your chance to get a proper, close-up … Continue reading Getting Around to Knit!
Wow, it's been a busy week here in Beastie Towers... AGAIN! Fortunately, not all of the global Beastie family are entangled in Christmas market preparations. So today I'm going to leave you in the capable hands (and paws) of Tammie and her mischievous monster companion Finn McSpool, as they have some close encounters with the … Continue reading Beastie Meets Beasties at the Oregon Zoo
All the leaves are brown... and the sky certainly is grey here in Dublin today! But it seems like not all Beasties are reaching for their hats and scarves, or bedding down on the sofa to rewatch "The Muppet Christmas Carol". Not Paddy and Plunkett, anyway... They're still on holiday in Lanzarote! Today, their wandering … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett Rock Out!
After last week's post, some eagle-eyed readers were able to figure out that Paddy and Plunkett are currently enjoying a bit of winter (or late autumn!) sun in Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands. Lucky them! Shall we see where their wandering paws have taken them this week? It seems like they've been making friends … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett, Livin’ it up in Lanzarote!
It's been a while since we last checked in with Paddy and Plunkett... But after hearing from Grim Reaper Beastie and Fairy Princess Beastie over the last couple of weeks, I reckoned it was only a matter of time before the boys got in touch as well! I wonder where they are? It seems like … Continue reading On The Road Again With Paddy and Plunkett!
Hooray! It's new Beastie time again... Although today I will be taking a surprise break from the Famous Monsters theme of the last couple of weeks. I've been struck down by one of the delightful plagues that's been doing the rounds lately, so I've spent the last few days binge-watching "The Killing" on Netflix and... … Continue reading Bon Voyage, Beastie!
