Happy St Andrews Day!

30th November is St Andrews Day in Scotland and Edinburgh Castle started the celebrations off in style yesterday with a fantastic display of fireworks.

Here is the picture I took from the back door to my office. What a show!

Shop Updates

I’ve finally gotten around to updating my shop and have just uploaded some sweet button jewellery. Don’t forget that until Tuesday you can get 15% off EVERYTHING with the code TALKT15. I’ve still to upload the cushions and some more collars from my stall but please keep your eyes peeled and I’ll update you when everything is on there. Apologies for everything coming in drips and drabs, I’m much better at making things than I am at photographing and listing them!

 

Festive Discounting!

So, for Take a Look Tuesday this week I decided to have a wee pre Christmas sale and for one week only, everything in my shop on Etsy will have 15% discount with code TALKT15. Don’t forget that as all of my items have free UK & Ireland postage this means there are some real bargains to be had!
I’ve also got some lovely items left over from the market at the weekend to add tonight.

Stalls but no shoppers

So today was the big day! I made the early morning trip from Glasgow to Edinburgh in torrential rain, to get to The Voodoo Rooms and get my stall set up. I was nervous and excited for my first market! I was all set up and waiting for the crowds to arrive, and waited a little more. Unfortunately, my first market was lacking in footfall which was a shame as there were some lovely stalls.
It wasn’t a waste for me to attend as I now have a good idea of what to expect at a market and how to prepare. Roll on the next attempt!
Anyway, here are some pictures of my stall.

 

Take a Look Tuesday

Just a quick one for today but I wanted to share this photographer with you all. Rachel Keenan is a young photographer based in Glasgow and her pictures are absolutely stunning. Please check her out here.

Pinterest Picks #6

Here are some things I’ve been falling in love with on Pinterest this week, oh to be a millionaire!

 

First up, who doesn’t love Orla Kiely? I am no exception to this and I am so in love with her prints, designs and clothes. This week I began a fairly strong love affair with this sweet jumper. I love the colours and style, just not the price tag.

Next I have to share another Beatles print. I love the iconic image and great use of colour in this.

Finally another thing to add to the never ending “To Make” list
