A Dream Come True.

Is the title of our latest published work in the November 2013 issue of Ireland’s Homes Interiors & Living magazine…
The cover plus pages 68 to 78 in the November 2013 issue of Ireland's Homes Interiors & Living magazine featuring Patricia and Paul Abbott's detached cottage in the County Down town of Bangor.
.. on pages 68 to 78, plus on the cover too – featuring Patricia and Christopher Abbott’s detached cottage in the County Down town of Bangor.

“Patricia explains how she and husband Christopher found their dream house – a 1920s seaside cottage in Ballyholme, Bangor, Co Down – just a few doors down the road. ‘You hear such awful stories about people’s property moves, but when we went house-hunting it couldn’t have been easier !'”

Which I talked about shooting here: How beautiful images – back in January 2011.

I loved this place and I loved how it had been styled & decorated too – so yes for me, this was also a dream home too.

Anyway, a huge thanks to everyone involved for their hard work here – and a huge congratulations to Patricia & Christopher – especially for making it onto the cover too, of this beautifully printed magazine.

“Charles took a leap of faith when he embarked on a huge renovation project to breathe vibrancy back into a much-loved but faded, late Victorian three-story end terrace in Bangor, Co Down.”

Friday the 13th..

… and the sun is shining in our garden today…
The garden at the back of 4 Kilbright Road near Carrowdore in County Down.

Anyway, we decided to put our house on the market at lunch time…

Plus my 10 year old goldfish died this morning, my Hasselblad CFE 40mm lens stopped working this afternoon and it was Coach Phill Hansel’s Funeral today.

So this Friday the 13th is definitely a day to remember.
