Some nice things today:
-nice weather
-a new desktop wallpaper for the gallery computer courtesy of Atherton Lin which you can get here. They made a super nice calendar which sold out before I could get a copy..sniff sniff. But they are releasing a desktop wallpaper for every month. lovely.
-listening to the new Panda Bear album Tomboy which is streamed for free here. Perfect music for a sunny day!

Pop along to the Broughton Street Deli tommorow evening for Marchmont Gallery artist Louise Smurthwaite's exhibition of screen prints, photos and other lovely things.The exhibition previews tommorow at 7.30pm and continues til 22nd May. If you can't make it tommorow it is a good excuse to stroll on down to the Deli for a delicious cup of coffee and tasty cakes! Keep an eye on the Broughton Deli Art blog for upcoming exhibitions!

We love these bright colourful brooches and necklaces by local artist Twiggd aka Tara McIntosh. Big spotty bows and jewellery inspired by old fashioned tattoos, as well as cute speech bubble brooches. I'm thinking of wearing the grrrr! brooch on bad days!

I found this old photo of from the early 1900's of Warrender Park rd here  I think we are on the left as far as i can tell...I might be wrong. I love seeing how places looked all that time ago..looks a lot different from today. I think I would much prefer to look out on to horses and carts trotting by. Instead today workmen are rather noisily digging up the round across the road. Scotlands Places is also a great site for finding old town photos (found via Analogue books)
