Caledonia

caledonia

This print is familiar to lots of you and was one of my very first prints that i created (designed it while still at university). It was first created for my mum as a gift – the Edinburgh skyline with the lyrics from one of her favorite songs; Caledonia by Dougie McLean. Once created lots of my mums friends asked about getting copies of it and one thing led to another and it has been one of my best selling prints ever since. Sadly i sold the very last one today. This prints has been created in 5 colour ways over the years and i felt it was time to move on. Sometimes the best thing must end to make room for new and exciting things. Thank you to everyone who had bought this print over the years, thank you to Dougie McLean for granting me permission to use his lyrics and mostly thank you to this print – maybe without it i would never have started my business, so to finish I’ll be a bit cheesy and say:

“Let me tell you that i love you, that i think about you all the time. Caledonia is calling me and now i’m going home.”

    Hi Emily,

    Such a shame, I’m Australian and have just got engaged to a beautiful Scottish lass and we were going to get one for our Sydney home to remember our engagement in Scotland.

    If any last last last ones become available let us know would be great to have a bit of Scotland in sunny Sydney.

    All the best
