The Sheelin

So I got back a few weeks ago from a great (but rainy) trip to Ireland. I went with my mother for a two week stay, full of her family and the royal family. That’s right, I saw the Queen! She and Prince Phillip were in Northern Ireland and she was adorable! She had on a beautiful wedge-wood blue coat with a matching hat and it just popped!

But that isn’t what I wanted to share with you! We went to this little antique lace shop and museum in Bellanaleck, Enniskillen Co. Fermanagh called The Sheelin. It was AMAZING! Everything in the store was antique Irish lace that the owner has been collecting for years. It was all gorgeous and I wish I was getting married so that I could get something to incorporate in my big day!

The museum in the back was gorgeous! There were all lace dresses, parasols, veils and even a shawl that was in the family of Lady Diana. If you are ever in Northern Ireland (which I would highly recommend doing) check this place out!
