My Maiden Blog

Apparently I should blog according to various nameless sources. As a rule I like to talk, whether to humans or animals I'm not fussed as long as there is an ear that is pretending to listen.
I suppose I should introduce myself. My real name is Sarah Brown also known in recent times as The Tartan Trout. I'm nearly 39, old enough to know better but still young enough to give most things a try! Originally from a greying little town called Denny near Stirling I now live in the heart of the North Devon countryside. I am as much at home here in my wellies with the chickens as I am on Oxford Street choosing yet another pair of pretty shoes. I have 2 children and a husband who live with me. We are all kept an eye on by 2 cats, 2 dogs and 2 chickens.
The purpose of this blog is to promote The Tartan Trout. This is my little corner of the lampworking and jewellery world. I love making the beads, then creating the piece of jewellery with them, for people to then buy, wear and appreciate. For those of you who don't know what lampworking is, in blog 2 I will do a brief write up with some pretty pictures.

In honour of The Tartan Trouts maiden blog I will be giving away a pair of sterling silver earrings with lampwork beads in the winners choice of colour in about a weeks time. You need to be a liker on The Tartan Trout page on fb for this to happen.Tartan Trout on fb

For today this is as good as it gets. If you made it this far, you have my thanks :)
