sweet dreams

this is why cissy's nickname is snugglebug.

the big freeze

it has been snowing here the last few days. i love snow, but it feels like the country has ground to a halt due to record low temperatures and treacherous road conditions. its freezing here especially as my boilers packed in. so its time to get hyggelig with woollens, blankets, hot water bottles, lots of hot chocolate, snowboots, scarfs and snuggly cats.

winter wonderland

glasgow has gotten all festive, snowy and twinkly.

clap your hands

combining my love for sia and all things woolly and crocheted, i love this pic from her recent tour in canada. also check out the awesome dress (made from tape) that she wore in concert in london where she also sings my favorite ever song.

before all the leaves fall off the trees

i was lucky enough to be taken a little trip to fort william last weekend, when i got to see rural scotland in all its autumn splendor (before all the trees go baldy), stopping off at the wonderful drovers inn for yummy food eaten by an open fire.

the littlest birds sing the prettiest songs

it has been a very long time since i have been to see any live music, so it was a wonderful and rare treat at the weekend to hear frazey ford and her new band play. wow, frazey has such an amazing voice. she is also one third of the be good tanyas, who sing one of my very favourite songs.

so nice to get out the city and get into nature. especially lovely at this time of year when the ground is covered with crunchy leaves, acorns and pinecones. oh how i love october.

london design festival 2010 (wish i was there part 6)

one of the very many (over 200) amazing exhibitors at tent london is showshow 'sustainable danish design with a loving touch'. i am drawn to these capulo and condessa chairs from oficina kreativa, not only because they are based on classic mexican designs from the 1950's but also the fact that the designers engage socially with the factory in a low income region of mexico, working with issues such as saftey, fair wages, equal rights and make sure all the plastic used is recycled and free of toxic metals.
