Friday Favourites – 16 November

Another week of favourites. This week I’ve mostly been looking forward to an event rather than lusting over objects… although some of that too obviously.

Topshop Geek Tee

Seen this t-shirt about lots recently and I’m really loving the cut, colour and the slogan. Maybe if I get my Christmas shopping done early I can treat myself. It’ll go with all my genuinely geeky t-shirts – seriously, I have dinosaurs, Batman, Jaws and more.

Available at www.topshop.com for £18.00 Pricey for a tee but very cool.

Indie Christmas Cards

As much as I love the high street I am a big advocate for shopping in independent stores and buying from artists where possible. When it comes to cards, I always buy charity cards, especially at Christmas and now I have found the perfect combination. I absolutely love these Christmas cards by Sarah Clark, especially the ‘Holidays are Coming’ design. You get 8 gorgeous cards for £4.50 and 50p from each sale will be donated to Parkinson’s Disease Society to boot. I think I’ll get some to send, and some for myself to pop in frames for decoration.

You can buy these from www.etsy.com/shop/SarahCatherineDesign.

John Bellany

The Voyage (1973)

Ok, so this might be something I’d like to buy, but it would never happen! John Bellany is one of my favourite artists, probably my favourite Scottish painter anyway (oh wait…Howson… no I can’t choose). In honour of his 70th birthday, which I’m sure he can’t believe he’s seeing, there is a huge retrospective of his work at National Galleries Scotland opening tomorrow. I’m going to see it next week and I can’t wait.

For more information about the exhibition, see here.

Short post, but that’s my favourites for this week. I hope to do a review of Bellany’s exhibition next week so be sure to have a look back if that’s something you would be interested in.
