Thursday's giveaway… Gillian Kyle

Last August, just before we got engaged, myself and the OH took a wee trip through to Glasgow – mainly to see U2 – and there I discovered the rather awesome work of Gillian Kyle.

It was the Glasgow Breakfast tea towel that totally won my heart. As an ex-Glasgow gal, I have seen many a wee soul chugging back Irn Bru and munching on Scotch pies first thing in the morning! (Actually, switch that Scotch pie for a macaroni one and I’ve been that soul on a hungover day!)

But the clincher for me was when I discovered she was doing things with Creamola Foam on them!

Like many Scots, I adored this drink as a child. It was sugary, it was sweet and it must have been soooo bad for you – exactly what you want as a kid! I was allowed to have it every now and then at my grandparents’ house (along with a slice of toast with Golden Syrup!) and I must have been bouncing off the wall after having it!

So when we last went to Made in the Shade in Edinburgh, I had to buy Gillian Kyle‘s Creamola Foam mug… ok, so I’m drinking green tea out of it but I can pretend it’s really bad for me!

So I was super happy when Gillian said she would be part of the blog birthday giveaway… and not just because I think these Scottish Plain bibs are the cutest thing ever!

To win today’s giveaway, here’s what you have to do…Visit Gillian Kyle, pick your favourite thing, then come back here and leave me a comment saying what it is.

The winner will be chosen at random next Thursday – and will win their favourite!
