Default Scottish stuff

I plan to make a staff member for my house who is going to be Scottish..to put a bit of heritage in my house, maybe as a gardener/gamekeeper ?? I can make the porcelain doll from scratch and I can make him a kilt etc but I want him to have a bedroom with a Scottish theme. I would appreciate any ideas or links anyone has Thank you Jeannine

Well, you could go all out with tartan (I guess if he was from a particular clan, there would just be the one tartan pattern not a whole range) and coats of arms etc. but you could also make it subtle, so bagpipes, scotch thistles, whiskey set, a hidden leprechaun? Photos or postcards of Scotland. You could try googling Scottish souvenirs for inspiration.

Thank you Shannon. the postcards shrunk down may make good pictures and of course the whisky set, bagpipes I am making myself but was hoping to buy some Scottish miniatures, so far I have not found any.

aaghh,,but you are right, look at it's eyes though.I have to admit, I don't like hunting as a sport but... yes it would be true to the era, so thank you, I will buy a stag head.I don't think that is something I could make!! Great idea. XX Jeannine
