Hocus Pocus!

Today I'm like a witch making potions in her cauldron, I'm having fun dying some mohair for a wee bear! Whilst I'm waiting for the colour to appear like magic I thought I'd share some castles from Scotland. I'm so glad you've enjoyed the photos from our Summer trip, we had the most fabulous warm, blue skied days for the whole 2 weeks. Just imagine what it must have been like when these castles were inhabited and all the battles that went on... spoooky dark places with just flames flickering for light...! Eileen Donan Castle with the arched bridge was stunning, I had always wanted to see this Castle since I bought a postcard of it on one of my trips to stay with my Scottish family as a child. See that catapault for the canon balls at the ruins of Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness - nope we didn't see the monster! Happy Halloween everyone. I've got lots to share next week so come back soon, Catherine x

I have always wanted to go to Loch Ness, I sooo believe in the Loch Ness monster (although I want to believe he is quite loveable, not a monster!) Your photos are beautiful! Bisous... Julie Marie and Honeybeary

Hi Catharine,

I have just discovered you having followed something on the Belle and Boo website and wanted to say hello.

I love, love, love your bunnies series of prints (in the teapot and teacups etc). Just lovely.

I don't know if you can help but do you wholesale at all? I have a little shop - http://www.cottontailsbaby.co.uk - and would love to stock them.

I am just about to have some Belle and Boo stuff in too!

Love Charlotte
