Basil - loves his days out at the beach - sadly these have been curtailed this year as he has had a leg injury and confined to home base until further notice… Awe bless him!


 

Basil - continues to improve after his operation on his torn cruciate ligament. He had been confined to complete rest  and is only just getting use back of his sore leg and paw.

Update December: Basil has improved and his leg is mended - although he might always be a bit shaky on his wee pins!  But at over nine years old - he is now classified as a Senior!

Iconic Edinburgh: Design and Vintage attend the Annual Degree Show at Edinburgh College of Art… my favourite works on show were by Theo Cleary - and I have taken a couple of snaps of some to share with you.  Always great going back to visit the ECA - where I was a student of Drawing and Painting in the early 80s.

Another highlight of our year is attending the Picture Sales at Lyon and Turnbull’s Auction House. They have a fantastic gallery space for displaying their pictures and often offer special lectures about artists, as well as their works coming up for sale. At the autumn sale a  beautiful print by John Brunsdon caught our eye… we also have a couple of his fine works for sale on our own sister site - www.iconicartscotland.co.uk

One of Iconic Edinburgh’s favourite holiday destinations is, of course, Stockholm - where we source lovely vintage items for the shop and also visit lots of museum’s for inspiration, and of course our enjoyment! Here is a wee slide show of some snaps taken at the Norsk Museum which we visited on our recent trip to Sweden in May 2014.  

 

This year, at the end of October, Iconic Edinburgh: Design and Vintage also travelled to Lisbon. It was a fantastic trip and the weather was absolutely glorious - we are sharing here in our slide show some highlights of our visit - we look forward to a return to the Portuguese capital in 2015…  so much more for us still to see!

 

We certainly did a lot of travelling this year… another of our favourite capital cities of course is the “Eternal”one… Rome…. Trips included days out of the city center to  Tivoli to visit the Villa d’Este and to see the Waterfall - we especially enjoyed the Gallery of Modern Art - just outside of the Borghese Gardens.

That is one crashed out doggie seen to the left - tee hee - completely out of it. Ah! It has been a tough year for the wee fellow. After his operation - looks like he has issues with his other leg - think a bit of problems with his joints - we are just papering him now - he still goes out on plenty walkies etc - but think his days sitting outside the shop are over.. We will bring him down to sit inside when the weather picks up… he is alright so thanks to everyone asking about him…
