Hi I am Mairead and welcome to My Yellow Jumper, a place filled with an eclectic mix of all the things I adore and which bring me inspiration.
I am not a stylist, designer nor a journalist, but someone who has a passion for colour, pattern and texture, in everything from fashion, design and interiors, cookery and craft, to flowers and fragrance. I am also a serious chocolate and tea enthusiast and stationery geek!
I hope my blog gives you lots of enjoyment, and I inspire you to inject some colour into your life. Have fun exploring my blog, as much as I enjoy writing it.
