Tea and a chat with.....

Up this week is the wonderful Maura of Irish Bounty, a gem of an etsy shop selling all things thrifty, vintage and bric-a-brac - My personal favourite type of Etsy store!!

If you wish to be featured on Tea & a chat, don't hesitate to email Rebecca at (don't forget to send some pics of your wonderful items for us all to drool over!)

Enjoy and over to Maura!

What is the last book you read? 
The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas John Boyne

If you could be a superhero what super powers would you choose?
I'd be invisible, able to fly and with the ability to broadcast what I see/hear around the world. That way I could sneak into bilderberg meetings etc and then do an expose on them and their plans. 

Describe yourself in 4 words.
Haphazard, idealistic, daydreamer, non-conformist

What did you want to be when you were 12 years old?
A nun

Imagine you are having a dinner party, you can invite 5 people dead or alive, who would they be?

Asimov, Tesla, Lincoln, Chavez, Jon Stewart 

What was your mother right about?
That if my head wasn't screwed onto my shoulders I'd lose it

Guiltiest pleasure?
Duvet day with Cava and dark choclates and entire seasons of the Fringe to watch

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
No idea - depends what life sends me!

Regardless of money, would you ever get plastic surgery?
No but with money I would have a private trainer, masseuse and chef and between them they'd help whip me into shape and make the best of what I have

Describe your perfect day
Wake up, coffee, hit the carboot sale, walk around exploring everything for 3 hours, home and a fry up, nap

Lastly, some linky goodness, link to your shop, blog, facebook, twitter etc etc.


Next Week: Kokokaren! Stay tuned!


  1. Wow, Maura, so many things you said had me just nodding my head in agreement! Apart from the 'nun' bit, lol.

    "Wake up, coffee, hit the carboot sale, walk around exploring everything for 3 hours, home and a fry up, nap"

    A woman after my own heart, especially the 'coffee, fry up and nap' bit!!!
