Autumn's Arrivals at Present Perfect

Hello and welcome to our September newsletter; we have lots to tell you.

This ceramic "pineapple" lamp is just one of the new light fittings that we received recently. We have a selection, from traditional to a classic chrome balanced-arm desk lamp. Indirect lighting from table lamps is so much softer and more flattering than overhead light and you can give a room an entirely different look with a new lamp.

This acrylic painting, 'Impressions of Melrose Abbey' is just one of the six pieces we have by Borders artist, Shona Lenaghan. We are thrilled to be displaying her colourful works which are inspired by the Borders surroundings. You can see more of Shona's work via her Facebook page.

On the subject of artist works, we have a few new friends from Suzanne Kirk's Eildon Bears label. Handmade right here in Melrose, using genuine mohair, with glass eyes and cotterpin joints, each bear (and now rabbits too!) is a unique collectors' item. They are not intended for children under the age of 14.

Candles are always on the list at Present Perfect and we have just received this popular range from Torc in Ireland. The set of four has two new fragrances this year: French Lavender and Fresh Fig & Vanilla, which are joined by Cinnamon Spice and Mulled Wine. The set costs £20 or the candles can be bought individually for £5.50, all excellent value.

These three fragrances from American company, Essenza, are ideal for Autumn: Pomegranate, Chai Spice and Vanilla. They are £10.99 each. Candleglow couldn't be more welcoming than at this time of year.

A couple of weeks ago we received a selection of tapestry bags from Signare. They are excellent value and come in various sizes, styles and designs including this West Highland terrier pattern. We also have cosmetic pouches and purses. Other designs are: ladies fashion, the equine world and butterflies.

Finally, if I may, I'd like to draw your attention to the sidebar above where you will see a slideshow of examples of my own digitally manipulated artwork created from original photographs. These are available in various formats from Fine Art America who will produce the print to your requirements, pack and ship. They reproduce work from artists across the world and it's well worth taking a look.

We do hope you will call in soon to see all that we have available and we look forward to seeing you.
