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.



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.

Pointelle Detail Sweater Slate


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

Crochet Irish Rose Afghan


My flat is in absolute chaos as I prepare for Gin in Teacups next Sunday (does this happen to everyone before their first craft market?) so I can’t really take any good pictures of what I have been making, I promise lots of pictures of the stall though.In the mean time I have also been spending a lot of time looking through my old instagram posts so I thought I would share some of my favourites. Below are a mix of funny things I’ve seen, things I’ve made and places I’ve been, hovering over the image will tell you what/where it is. If you want to follow me on instagram I am sarahquinn27


Pinterest Picks #3

So here we have my week 3 picks, man I love this website!


First up is this great little milk jug. It has just the right balance of purpose and design aesthetics for me.

How about this stunning paper art? I love it! It has real echoes of Jim Lambie.

I love the style of these photographs. The filter makes everything look dreamlike and fantastical.

Finally, this charming wee shoe advert.

Pinterest Picks #2

So I’ve made it to week 2! Here are some of my favourite pinteresting things from last week.

First up this week we have this lovely poster featuring lomography cameras. Cameras are beautiful objects and I love to see them displayed like this.


I’ve tried my hand at embroidery once or twice and it’s always ended up a bit of a mess so I am utterly astounded when I see beautiful pieces like this, when I think of how much effort has gone into it I am in awe.


This is a gorgeous use of embroidery hoops and felt. It’s given me so many great ideas too!

Hmmm…there seems to have been some colour coordination this week, they all look so lovely together!

Pinterest Pics #1

In an attempt to have some semi regular commentary I’ve decided to make Mondays my Pinterest Pics Day. I spend an obscene amount of time on this website and it seems only right that I encourage others to do the same.

Every Monday I will list some of my favourite things on Pinterest. Here are today’s selection;

First up is this great selection of Jim Lambie interiors. I love the colours he uses and the shapes he creates.

Next is this heart stopping picture of Felix Baumgartner about to leap out of his balloon pod yesterday. Like many I was glued to this jump. It was terrifying for me so I dread to think how his family felt watching it, never mind how he felt stepping off that platform. What an unbelievable view though.


Thirdly, is this beautiful image of a hand with The Beatles, ‘Hello, Goodbye’ lyrics. I love the song to begin with and I’m an absolute sucker for typography like this.

Now, I am terrible at keeping a diary- I manage it for a few weeks then forget about it. I wish with all my heart that I could create something like this and keep it up!

One week in my current journal.

This is just a beautiful picture

Lovely in every way

So there we have it…week 1 on my Pinterest Pics.
