I don’t often write about particular shops but Lovely Things in Dundee definitely deserves a mention in the blog world! This is the place to go to if you need a gift for a friend, or something to brighten up your home, or for something to just perk you up when things are getting you down. It’s the perfect place for a browse and I can guarantee that you will come out with something beautiful regardlesss of your budget!
This sort of shop is a bit of a rareity on the East Coast of Scotland and so is definitely worth supporting. Go in, take a look and have a chat with the owner Lynne Duffus – Lynne’s updates on Facebook are also worth signing up for as she posts about the joys of family life (with a comic touch), along with gorgeous photos of the latest finds for the shop.
Over the last year I have bought myself a variety of treats from Lovely Things, and have also been given some beautifuls gifts from the shop! The journal in this post also comes from there!
The silver cake stand/jewellery stand is my favourite – it looks so pretty on my dressing table! Lovely Things really is a place which deserves a visit, multiple visits, and I defy you not to come out smiling with a gorgeous pink or lime green paper bag in your hand bulging with goodies!
As for me, I am enjoying the first day of a holiday from the day-job. The sun is shining and I can physically feel the tension ease out of my body as I realise that I don’t have to rush around for the next wee while. Bliss! However, as always with the Busy Thistle, I have plenty of plans to execute and people to see so it should be a good one! Let’s hope the sunshine holds!
