Complete change = transformation

We’re close to completing our change of life, home, space …….

We’re starting the countdown to the launch of our online shop, we’ve moved into our new home, we’ve shifted into a new lifestyle we’re enjoying our new environment.

A lot has happened in the last few months as we continue to live our dream and settle in to our new life in sunny Dunbar, East Lothian designing and making knitted home accessories and reclaimed furniture.

Our product lines continue to develop and our best results are produced when we collaborate.

And my favourite thing – one of a set of four classic nursery chairs with our very cute great nephew posing! Thank you Suzanne and Allan for photo.

Limoges, France, Day 3 of living the dream.

Today we headed for Limoge – famous for porcelain and enamel. We discovered a pretty city centre with half timber buildings in subtle colours.

Living the dream

We are almost one month into working in our workshop and so far so good. We have things to sell, we have the begining of a brand and an evolving vision of the retail experience we want to provide for our customers.

Pika is adjusting to a daily routine of a walk on the beach – we are tweeting a daily weather report to test if Dunbar lives up to its #sunnydunny reputation.
