#LoveWins! Summer Of Love 2015...


This year may not be remembered for its sunshine, but look on the bright side...

...2015 has become the 21st century's summer of love! 

The symbolic use of rainbows and the hashtag #lovewins has been sweeping across social media in the past week.  This wave of celebration follows a Supreme Court ruling in America that supports the right of all couples - regardless of gender or sexual orientation - to marry in any state in America.

- Justice Kennedy, The Supreme Court

We're delighted to join in these celebrations here at Funky Scottish and hope this landmark decision will continue to create a positive impact across the globe! Love Wins. Eventually. Always. xo

Building An Ark (+ Other Ways To Avoid Springtime Showers!)


Time to build an ark?

The abundance of springtime showers we've been experiencing lately reminded us of this
playful, 'Noah' themed commission, hand painted by Karen Edward @ Funky Scottish!

Meanwhile, if you're really looking for something fun to do on rainy days in the East Neuk, we recommend...

+ seeing historic, hand-crafted boats at Scottish Fisheries Museum
+ watching the latest adaption of Noah, starring Russell Crow
+ meeting animals of the ocean at St Andrews Aquarium


And remember...

"A rainy day at the beach is better than a sunny day at the office"
