Scotland Here We Come

Packing up again!  We are setting off for Edinburgh Art Fair today.  I am so excited, we have so many brilliant works of art to take I cant wait to hang them all and bathe in the glow as we talk to people about such rare and wonderful beauties.  We honestly have such talented artists and a marvellous breath of styles and expression.
Here is a sneaky preview, we are taking about 70 art works from the huge and magnificent to the tiny and amazing.  We also have some new surprises.
