New Stock

Most of the items that I produce to sell have been made with a specific person or people in mind. I created this print for Bopa and Birdie, much cherished aunty and uncle, and my unofficial creative Godparents. They’re such special people that I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they do one day tell me that they are in fact fairy Godparents. This was their Christmas present. As with most manual printing processes you end up with several copies so I have a limited edition run to sell on my etsy shopSafe Oot, Safe In is a traditional Scottish Borders saying with a similar meaning to mind how you go. It perfectly encapsulates the mixture of understatement and big heartedness typical of Borders’ folk. It is most often used during the Common Ridings season in which hundreds of horses and riders march the boundaries of many Border’s towns, as they have for hundreds of years.
