  1. A wee trip to Glasgow

    IMG_1146

    It looks like January is going to be a month of catching up on all my holidays in 2009 (I've got folders stacked with stuff to tell you about – look out for Paris and Copenhagen over the coming weeks), but first I have to tell you about my wonderful trip to Glasgow in December.

    I was delighted to meet up with blog/Twitter pals I like and Sarey Poppins, who were very kind and took me out for dinner and a movie one night. I also scored some early Christmas presents: a Sarey Poppins' clasp purse in a wonderfully vibrant Grayson Perry for Liberty print (see above), as well as a bundle of postcards and cards from I like, featuring all manner of kitschy, retro and quintessentially British images.

    You can buy sets of I like's cards from her Folksy shop.
