A Look At Things Scottish

Robbie Burn's day is coming up on January 25th 2016 so I decided to post things that have something to do with Scotland.  I did a post called "A Little Tartan And Finds" in a January 2014 if you are interested in looking back at it.

These are a few cookie and candy tins I have collected over the years.

I'm afraid this picture didn't turn out that good but as you can see I'm still using it. 
I wanted a picture with a selection of different items so here it is. 

I was at The Market a local favorite store I love to check out and took pictures of things as I walked around the store.  I also found some dining room chairs we bought that I hope to show you in a future post.

The above collage are a few pictures from my 2014 post I mentioned at the beginning of this post.

This brooch I found at a second hand store just before Christmas.  I was going to leave it behind as it was a bit more then I wanted to pay but there's something about the thistle design I like in jewelry.

 These two Bracelets are Scottish  I received them as Christmas gifts from him this past Christmas.
I must admit the one on the left is my favorite.

All the above pieces of jewelry are brooches but the one with red stones it is for wearing a scarf.

I was at a antique show a couple of months ago and came across this mirror and powder compact for a reasonable price so I had to get it.

The above scarf  is 100 percent wool made by Johnstons of Elgin in Moray Scotland.
They've been in business since 1797.

This paperweight was a gift to me this past Christmas from some friends it's made by Selkirk Glass Scotland in 1986.

It was a cold frosty day last Sunday and we met up with my cousin his wife and their son who's just over 4 months old now at Wendells in Fort Langley,  British Columbia for breakfast then we went for a drive so I could get some pictures which are in the collage above.  These are a few I actually took over 222 pictures.

I almost forgot the lamp, it was one of my husbands flea market finds and he told me if I didn't like it we didn't have to keep it.  Apparently me calling it the ugly lamp was not a clue to him what I thought of it since he put it up on our family room wall.  Last week we had a 4.8 earthquake here and I watched it shaking on the wall hopeful it would fall off and break but no, it stayed up.  I guess it's a survivor. Lets hope he doesn't find to many more of these kind of great finds.

  1. What a super post Denise! I like so much about it. The bracelets are gorgeous. At least hubby's jewelry taste is exquisite, he should leave the lamps to you. ;) Earthquake proof, too funny. Actually it is an unusua lamp and looks good on your wall. Beautiful paperweight, sweet brooches, and love all your shortbread tins.

  2. Oh Denise,

    That paperweight is just gorgeous! Isn’t it fun finding blues to share?

    Happy Blue Monday!

  3. I love the blue paperweight! It's a piece of art in one of my favorite colors! I also have some Walkers Scottish shortbread I found in my Christmas stocking. I'm just waiting for a quiet moment to enjoy it with a hot cup of tea. Your post is so fun to see all the second hand items you found!

  4. So many delightful items, but love the tins the most.

  5. Hello hello! Love your Scottish finds! I gave you a feature today on my blog. Enjoy and have a blessed day!

  6. Wow, you have a great and very diverse collection of Scottish bits and pieces. There is nothing quite like shortbread from a tartan tin is there!? I especially love your Celtic design scarf clip too.

  7. I am Scottish, and my daughter was ordering some tartan fabric on ebay today, to make something, so it was nice to find your post on the Enchanting Rose :-) I particularly like your flower bracelet and the Celtic brooches. Thank you for sharing your photos!

  8. I came across Walkers Glenfiddich Mincemeat tarts around Christmas last year and they are absolutely gorgeous! When you open the package, you get a wiff of the Scotch Whiskey and the flavour is absolutely divine!

  9. Beautiful treasures are always good a second time around!! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Talk of the Town.

  10. I agree with Pam - what a super post, my friend! I always enjoy your posts, but this might be one of my favorites :)

    Such lovely treasures, my dear, and I greatly appreciate you sharing them with Roses of Inspiration. Enjoy your day! Hugs

  11. What a fun post. I love Scotland, well, what I have seen of it. I'd love to go back and see the whole place. So pretty. I love your bracelets. They are really lovely. Thank you for linking up to Tips and Tricks. Hope to see you again this week.

  12. I just love all of your plaids. I used to love wearing tartan kilts when I was in high school. And now, I don't own anything plaid, but I think that can be changed.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!


Look forward to your kind comments.
