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!
