|Not lame at all - these DCUK chaps can be found at Artizan Melrose|
We often take a look and if there's a topic we can relate to in the shop we enjoy featuring it on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Recently, we've had fun with the following Days.
|Penguin Awareness Day, 20 January|
Penguins are popular all the time as these items show: glass penguin and chick from D&J Glassware, handmade brooch by Kittiwake Design and gorgeous giftwrap by Jane Crick.
|Squirrel Appreciation Day, 21 January|
Squirrels are another furry favourite and this scurry enjoyed their turn in the spotlight!
|Robert Burns' Day, 25 January|
Of course, we couldn't overlook Scotland's Bard and paid tribute to his poem My Love is Like .....
|Chocolate Cake Day, 27 January|
Two days later we would have been celebrating chocolate cake, if only we'd had some!
|Chinese New Year fell on 28 January this year - the Year of the Rooster|
We managed to round up this clutch of hens and roosters to mark the Lunar New Year.
|Candlemas, 2 February 2017|
Our love of candles means we celebrate their light everyday but we couldn't possibly miss Candlemas. We've got plenty to choose from in the shop but have settled on this vibrant pic!
|World Cancer Day, 4 February|
Just this weekend, we put together this pink collage of gift items and others of our images to mark World Cancer Day.
So you see, surprising though it is even for us and no matter what the day, we often manage to come up with a selection of goodies. And on a dull wet day it definitely helps to lift our spirits! Tomorrow, 7 February, is listed as Ballet Day and Send a Card to a Friend Day. Now that second one ought to be easy!
