Welcome Home Store...


Well... these photos are now a few weeks old, as I have been busy over in Belfast - but I am so excited to share them nonetheless!

My friend Mhari McMullan recently opened Welcome Home - an amazing project which has been a LONG time in the planning. In fact, the very first time I met Mhari, back in 2007, {when she has just moved up to Glasgow from London} we ended up deep in conversation about the kind of creative shop spaces Glasgow needed and how Mhari planned to work on opening up Welcome Home as soon as she could...

Two years on, and after huge amounts of hard work and planning - Mhari's vision has finally been realised - and the reality is fantastically close to Mhari's original vision we talked about all those years ago!

A shop space dedicated to all lovely aspects of the home {the kitchen, the dressing room and the library to name but a few!} has been created in Glasgow's West End and in doing so, she has created much more...

Welcome Home is a space that will support temporary curated exhibitions {such as +Bloom+, the opening show, which I was honored to be a part of}, and provide residency space for artists and designers looking to work on special projects or run workshops. It's the type of unique creative project that any city should be glad to have and embrace warmly and support!!

Open less than a month, I think Mhari has done an amazing job thus far... you can see some shots I took when I visited the space for the first time the other week. I can't wait to see how Welcome Home progresses as the months go on, and exhibitions are unveiled... and I will look forward to popping in often to browse and pick up unique gifts for Christmas and beyond.

For any of you in Glasgow, or the surrounding locale - you will find Mhari and Welcome Home at 19 Keith Street ... and for those of you who are further afield, fear not {!}, you are able to shop her lovely products online RIGHT HERE as she has just launched her new online store...

You should also *absolutely* add the Welcome Home Blog to your blog-feeds to keep abreast of all the fun going on in store!!

Congratulations Mhari, I am so very proud of you and wish you the HUGEST of successes with your venture...

xo, Abigail
