  1. You guys are the best. I had to put my Etsy shop on
    Vacation for the next few days because I am on the road and cannot ship by Christmas, but I wanted to show you all my newest site for Celtic art where works are still available.

    http://www.redbubble.com/people/capallglas

    This site does the shipping, so the images here are still available for the holidays.

    If you see one of the pieces and would like to purchase the originals, especially the sketches of Irish locations, let me know.

    Thanks again, Irish Fireside, and Happy Holidays to all!! 2014 is my year to return to Ireland, I’ve been away too long.
