Vikings - The Untold Story

This exhibition is brilliant!  If you'd like to experience an exciting day of history and culture,  I thoroughly recommend taking a trip to Edinburgh for Vikings! The Untold Story at The National Museum of Scotland.  The exhibition uses unique objects and hands-on displays to create a vivid picture of how Vikings were living more than 1000 years ago.  I really enjoyed the whole experience. If you go along - or if you've been already - let me know what you think!  Also, isn't that a gorgeous necklace...?

Maybe it's because spring is just around the corner, I'm finding myself doing a little 'spring cleaning'!  I've been clearing out, updating and taking new photos. Some of the new images are now on the 'Our Gallery' pages on the Funky Scottish website.  It's a work-in-progress - there are a few more galleries still to be installed.  In the meantime, take a peek at my two newly uploaded collections:-

3 Funky Ways to Spread the LOVE...

Heart tile by Karen Edward, Funky Scottish

So, here we are in the Month of Love - it's the time of Valentines!  It's a celebration most associated with the romantic kind of love reserved for couples, but there are other ways to embrace that loving vibe!

So, here are 3 Funky Ways to Spread The Love...

1  Love Thyself

Enjoy some pampering me-time!  Light the candles, have a lingering soak, curl up with a favourite book or film, treat yourself to some gorgeous new lingerie, a spa treatment or a little trinket for your home! There are so many ways to love yourself! 

2  Connect With Love

This is paying it forward or spreading good karma. There's always someone out there who could benefit from some love in this cold climate!  It's the little things that count.  A smile on the street, a compliment or a helping hand is sometimes all it takes to make some else's day!   You could also call up a long-lost friend or write an old-fashioned letter to a favourite relative!   Here at Funky Scottish, we love to connect - with you!  So let's hook up on...


3 Make Love

What this means is....create something with passion! Do you love cooking? Bake a cake!  Do you love painting? Pick up the brush!  Writing? Taking pictures? Crafts? Knitting? Make something - anything - with real love and you'll be giving a little piece of your heart to the world!

Happy Valentines!!! 

Love from Karen and all at Funky Scottish xx
