Let’s Start All Over Again In This City

So today is the day to announce my big news, it really isn’t all that exciting, except for us! We will be leaving the island and moving to Edinburgh, Scotland in 3 weeks time-yikes! I can’t tell you how much I long to be back in the city, it is so beautiful here but we haven’t thrived, I will miss the sea, but hey, Edinburgh has the seaside too. I don’t think we could have picked a more perfect place to finally grow some roots. So, we are bound for Morningside to the south west of the city centre. I am looking forward to taking you on a walking tour of our new area, just look at the view over the rooftops.


Being in Edinburgh will allow LL&O more room to grow, craft fairs galore and less than a hour to Glasgow and the Craft Mafia gang, not forgetting my sister for essential Ishi-sitting (only kidding Ali, kind of!). Did I mention that Morningside has its own craft fair once a month! Plus, oodles of charity shops/thrift stores. I am a little in love with the flat we will be renting, I have only seen it in photos, Mr A has seen it with his own eyes though. Lots of light and ooh parquet flooring, I have every room planned out, this is the fun part. I will be busy packing up and making work for a show in May. The LL&O shop will go into vacation mode for a few weeks while we transition, no internet connection for a little while I expect. Wish us luck kittens, I will be back a little later with a tiny shop update, fingers crossed.
