triangle tweed pouffe

We love Harris Tweed here at boo vake and we especially love the new Harris Tweed & leather Triangle Tweed Pouffe we now have in the shop by Glasgow designer & upholsterer Eleanor Young (aka Fun Makes Good).

On a smaller scale, Eleanor has also sent us some rather lovely leather bird brooches. They come in both gold or silver leather and are mounted on a white Fun Makes Good card.

24 hrs in kintyre

Took advantage of the lovely weather and went out west at the weekend to the Kintyre Peninsula (around the Tarbert area) - and had a wander along the Crinan Canal in the sun.

Nothing beats the west coast of Scotland when the sun comes out (for me anyhow). Thanks to our very own Wills & Kate for letting us crash their holiday.
