‘Love is like a dizziness’

What is love? Passionate new love which sets your heart all a flutter, or the deep abiding trust and warmth of a long partnership? We all have different experiences of love, but the most important thing is to tell your loved ones what they mean to you.

If you are thinking of getting your loved one a token of your feelings, what could be better and more fitting than something lovingly hand-made by local makers? We have a truly wonderful collection of covetable objects at Maker, 2a High Street Inverkeithing – and as a bonus we will be posting a series of Scottish love poems, exploring the many forms of love – until St Valentine’s Day on 14th February. Enjoy!

 

O, Love, love, love!

Love is like a dizziness;

It winna let a poor body

Gang about his biziness!

James Hogg (1770-1835)
