Tunnock's Teacake Cushion

Very pleased to have these back in stock again, such a fun idea for just 20 of your golden pounds!

Make yourself a cuppa and settle down with one of these on the sofa... These great Tunnock's Teacake cushions are screen printed and handmade by Nikki McWilliams. They are made from 100% thick cotton with a nice soft but sturdy feel. On the front the famous packaging design is printed in red on cream cotton and the back is a dark red cotton to match.

These cushions are stuffed to perfection by hand and do not have removable covers (dry clean only). They measure 16" in diametre.

product of the week

Well it's back to school this week for kids in Scotland, so this week's product of the week the 9 til 5 tea towel is a funny and clever tribute to our school days from Glasgow based illustrator Emily Chappell.

"This tea towel is based on the traditional school self-portrait format. Only, this is what became of the kids."

A small selection of the names on it - easy like Sunday morning, 1980s, I look like my Gran, he ploughed his own furrow, and reader I left him...

Wallpaper Lampshade Class

Saturday 21st August, 2-4pm

The first in a series of new classes at Welcome Home run by Jen Hanlon of Paperplane Jane who will be teaching you all how to make your own lampshades! We're starting with a relatively easy one to make here but with a striking and beautiful result... We have got a great selection of vintage wallpapers to choose from for these shades but they would look incredible if they were illustrated or papercut too!

Places are limited to 8 per class so book early to avoid disappointment. The class is £20 for the two hours with all materials provided and two finished lampshades of your own creation to take home with you. Call 0141 334 9598 or email to book your place.
