Get Ready for 2019

With a Bay Attic Calendar. Choose a fabulous Slimline, A4 or A3 Calendar to jot your important dates and memories down throughout the new year.


Get in tune with nature. Choose the beautifully illustrated Earth and Sky, Keli Clark Slimline Calendar featuring the moon phases and dates and all the cute curios, wildlife and magic that you would expect from Keli’s mystical creativity.


Discover the Isle of Skye with a John Bathgate Slimline Collage 2019 Calendar. John works from his studio in Roskhill, just north of Dunvegan and, creates these intricate works using handmade papers from as far away as, Japan. He incorporates the paper and fibres into his interpretations of the elements that shape the Scottish landscape with dramatic effect.


John has also produced a stunning A3 Calendar for the new year too, with his paintings showing us the island in all seasons. Highlights for us are the Quiraing and Staffin Bay in snow but, then we love snow!


New for us at Bay Attic, is the illustrative design of Scottish Wildlife in the A4 2019 Birds of Scotland Calendar from Stewart Bremner. Check out the Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica) and the Western Capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) – Gaun Yersel Stewart!

Which, just so, happens to link perfectly to Stewarts ‘Scottish Sayings’ Slimline Calendar. Full of the quirky, colloquial dialect that the Scottish language has to offer. Can you translate the meaning each month? Foos Yer Doos? Had us stumped for a wee while but, then we’re not Aberdonian!


Last but, not least. We’ve two stunning photographic calendars for 2019 from photographer Pauline Kemp of Arran and Peebles. See the Isle of Arran in all its splendour. The front cover image of Machrie is stunning as, the sun reflects on the rocks – what a colour! And more snow – yipee! In the January image of the Peebles Calendar at Glencraig followed in followed by the Spring flowers for April at Neidpath, just lovely.

Our Calendars for 2019 come with or without a posting envelope and are wrapped in a cello bag with card stiffener. Prices start from £6.99.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day Sunday 19th June 2011

Father’s Day is on Sunday June 19th, for 2011 and a fantastic time for Dad’s, as well as kids young and old to use their imagination to make a gift for Dad.

As kids grow, Father’s Day gifts are more likely to be purchased or chosen based on Dad’s hobbies and pastimes, or special treats, but when children are of school age they love to show their appreciation by using their creative skills to write, draw, colour, paint and make something truly special for Dad.

Using a sheet of A4 card and folding in half, then a picture of Daddy draw with tiny hands, a few scrawled words, or even a collage on one side and then a hilariously spelt poem on the other side, are great ideas to make into Father’s Day cards. And as they grow the knitting attempts, and pottery shapes or painted glass objects and shovels made in Tech. class is a must for Father’s Day gifts.

I remember fondly, that my Dad had a drawer full of all the little nick-nacks that I had made from Primary School, for Father’s Day, Christmas and just because he’s my Dad.

What would Dad like for Father’s Day this year ?

At Bay Attic we have a selection of Art Prints, Coasters and Mugs, Gifts and Notebook/Journals suitable to add to a pending hand-made Father’s Day gift or as a gift in themselves. Starting from under £10.00. Search Bay Attic – you never know what you will find.

Quiet Time Giclee Fine Art Print by Lesley McLaren

The nights may be drawing in, and I am sure I am not the only one to notice. As with this art print from Lesley McLaren, Quiet Time. In her synonymous style she has created a peaceful farmland scene as three Belties enjoy the evening stillness, lit by the moon.
