Meet our eldest Son - Aran

Today is a VERY special day!! It is our eldest son's 20th birthday!!!!!!


It seems only yesterday that I held my new born baby son in my arms and he winked (yes winked!! as his new baby eyes couldn't keep both open at the same time - it was sooooo cute!!)  up at me with those adorable big blue eyes!!  Oh yes, from the word go he was a charmer!!

The night of Aran's graduation 

 They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!!  Aran has just finished first year in College - guess what he's studying???  Furniture Design & Manufacture!!!!  The College had an exhibition of the all the student's work at the end of the year, we had a great night and I was SO excited to see Aran's pieces having seen the work in progress throughout the year.  I LOVE them!!!!!

Aran's Floor Lamp (it's about 6 foot high) - isn't it cool!!!

Aran's side table - sycamore with walnut inlay and bentwood legs . . .  I LOVE how this piece turned out as I saw how much work went in to each step of the process . . .

Aran working getting the new shop ready . . .

Twenty years has flown by and that little baby has matured in to a wonderful young man.  We are SOOOOOO proud of him, he is a loving, caring, mature, loyal, dependable and hard working. I won't embarrass him by gushing any more but our family has had a tough few years and Aran has been a rock through it all and has gained respect and admiration from everyone who knows him.  So, hope you have a VERY Happy Birthday Aran - you deserve every happiness Life has to offer!


Love Mama Bear

Love meeting your family....thanks for introducing them to us. And, I think that's the first photo I've seen of you, Sharon. Hello, my friend :-)

Happy 20th, Aran!! Your sycamore and walnut table is very cool. So sculptural...wonderfully modern yet classical. How talented you are! I have always loved the glow of sycamore wood....great choice!

Cheers all the way from Wash, DC!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARAN!!! What an incredibly good looking AND talented family you are! I love Aran's pieces - the sycamore and walnut side table is like something you'd see in the Conran shop - absolutely gorgeous! I'm guessing that one day your young man will be a household name - move over Philippe Starck - here comes Aran!
Best wishes,

Congratulations Aran, Happy Birthday!!
You must be very proud Sharon, and rightly so!
As a mum of boys, I know we love them - faults, smelly socks and all!
Maybe a future designer for your shop?
Have a lovely weekend,
