'Burns Night' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

It was Burns Night last night in Scotland (if not all around the world!). It’s a commemoration, on his birthday, of the life & works of poet Robert – aka Rabbie – Burns.

The annual celebration usually involves saying grace, a poetry recitation, bagpipe playing, a supper of soup & haggis, numerous speeches and a few Scotch whisky toasts interspersed throughout the evening.

Did you sip a wee dram or two in celebration?

'Popping!' Etsy List curated by H is for Home | vintage and homemade popcorn items

It’s National Popcorn Day over in the US today but why should they have the celebration all to themselves? We love popcorn here in the UK too!

The best we ever tasted was on a trip to New York a decade or so ago. We bought it from Dale and Thomas, a popcorn shop on Broadway – they sold about 20 different flavours; sweet, savoury, smoky and spicy, we were spoilt for choice. We finally decided on the ‘chocolate chunk ‘n’ caramel’ – it was a popcorn revelation!

I’ve tried to recreate it a few times but the results have never even been close. I do make a mean salted toffee popcorn though… :-)

'Winter Walks' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

Yesterday saw the end of the Ramblers’ Festival of Winter Walks for another year. And what a glorious winter’s day it was too! Bright sunshine, blue sky and crisp & frosty underfoot. We’ve had a leisurely stroll through Etsy to look at the various representations of this simple pleasure – snow, woodland and dogs feature prominently – our idea of the perfect winter walk!

2015 is only a couple of days away, have you got yourself a planner for the new year yet? Do you rely on a calendar, year planner, journal or diary? Whichever you’re after, you’ll find something to suit in this week’s Etsy List.

From a beautiful set of letterpress coasters (who doesn’t love a multi-purpose calendar that’s still going to be useful in 2016?) to font-tastic framed artworks; an upcycled classic children’s book to a personalised leather-bound journal. My favourite of the bunch has to be the miniature typewriter desk calendar, it’s instantly downloadable and a snip at less than a fiver!

'Hello December!' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

Pinch, punch, first of the month! We promised ourselves that we wouldn’t mention the ‘C’ word until December was here. We’re ready to join the throng in checking out what’s on offer around the web this Christmas.

We’re starting our search with Etsy; one of the best places for vintage or hand-made, indie gifts and seasonal homewares.
