Just popped by...

...to tell you about my discovery in Portscatho... the most delightful shop ever, the sort of shop I would like to own (although I wouldn't want to sell anything and I would want to keep it all for me)... "The Sea Garden", full of decorative antiques, contemporary crafts, hand made accessories and lots of lovely little textiley bits and pieces. I could have spent a small fortune but I was very restrained.

Then of course, when I got home and was catching up with blogs I was reading about the next Homespun Fair and put two and two together and discovered that Christine who owns The Sea Garden, is one of the organisers of the Fair and whatsmore she has a blog called The Mermaid's Tale... so you can all go and see inside her beautiful shop.

But I rather have the sneaky feeling that you probably all knew that already and I was the only one who didn't!

  3. I've looked at your treasures - then at the Sea Garden blog - and I want to go! Maybe our Bobbins'n'Biscuits group could have a retreat in Cornwall?
