Pin the Tail on the Poodle – All about Pinterest!

So, here at Fluffy Tufts we have taken the bold move of joining Pinterest. Let’s get pinning!

Fluffy Tufts blog is now on Pinterest

Pinterest is a social network tool that I have never given any consideration to before now. A friend suggested that I join as she thought I would really enjoy it. So last night, I sat down to have a look. I have to say that she is right and I also don’t know why I hadn’t joined before.

I spent an enjoyable hour or two looking through hundreds of pet-related pins. Then, as I started to get to grips with the site, I started to design a few boards of my own. I have lots of ideas for future boards, but didn’t want to go mad pinning everything straight away! These are the boards I am working on so far:

  • Get Fit with Fido: a series of pin showing you lots of ways to keep you and your dog in shape!
  • Tried & Tested: this will feature all the toys, treats and accessories that the Fluffy Tufts gang use!
  • Serious Cattitude!: Cool felines and feline accessories from around the web!
  • DIY Dog Treats: Homemade treat recipes for your canine pal!

What do you think of Pinterest? Have you any recommendations for a Pinterest newbie like me? What kind of boards would you be interested in seeing? Tell me in the comments.

Have a look at the Fluffy Tufts pinterest profile. Follow if you like and we will follow back!

Russborough House and Hedge Maze – Staycation Ireland

Russborough House is a magnificent stately home situated in County Wicklow, Ireland.  It is one of those places that I have heard a lot about and even driven past many times, but had never visited.

Russborough House from russborough.ie

Russborough is a stunning Palladian mansion overlooking some of the most impressive views in Ireland. Designed in 1741 by Richard Cassels, it took 10 years to build what has been described as “one of the most beautiful houses in Ireland”. (Bruce Arnold, The Irish Times, 1997) With the Wicklow mountains and Blessington lakes just a stone’s throw away the setting is idyllic.

Sir Alfred and Lady Beit bought Russborough in 1952 to house their impressive art collection. They left this historic mansion, its collections and their fascinating life story to the Irish public in 1978.”

We had been planning to go back to Powerscourt Estate without the dogs, so we could tour the house and gardens. I was googling the opening times and one of the hits that came up was Russborough House, which is closer than Powerscourt and has the added bonus of a hedge maze! Being the big kids that we are, the hedge maze was the clincher!

Unfortunately, photography wasn’t permitted inside the house, so you will have to make do with a bunch of shots of us in the hedge maze ‘acting the maggot’ (which is irish slang for messing around!).
