This weekend

15 July 2011

This weekend we are planning to go to the Fruitmarket Gallery here in Edinburgh for a Design Market event. Some of the best designers from Scotland will be presenting their work in areas of  graphics, furniture, fashion and home. I'm curious to see what is regarded as designy and trendy in Scotland these days. 

If the weather is good, we may have a picnic either in Inverleith Park or the Botanic Gardens - both places have some of my favourite views of Edinburgh. And tonight we're going to see the new Harry Potter movie! I'm so excited! I remember reading the first HP book. I got a free sample chapter of the Philosopher's Stone at a book fair in Warsaw. And then there was just the anticipation for the next books to come out. Are you going to see the big finale of the series? 

Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S. Funny fact - I used to work in one of the gift boutiques in Bruntsfield in Edinburgh and J.K. Rowling came in one day to buy some scented candles (she used to live close by)! She wore sky-high heels and massive Ray Bans. I still have a picture of her receipt on my phone - with her name on it.

  1. Oj tam oj tam, do 'best designers' to im jeszcze sporo brakuje.

  2. Nie jestem ekspertem, wiec nie moge za bardzo sie wypowiedziec jak daleko tym designerom do bycia najlepszymi w Szkocji. Podobalo mi sie duzo printow, pocztowek i torebek, jak i bardzo mila atmosfera w Fruitmarket Gallery - polecam i pozdrawiam -M.
