• Looking up at Canary Wharf

    On a trip to see the now infamously tardy Justin Bieber on Monday, Ione and I decided to investigate the local surroundings of Canary Wharf. We were miniature people like the ones that would've been positioned on the scaled down architect's model along with all the tiny fake trees and fountains so may years ago. We weaved in and out of groups of bankers on lunch hour runs, Chanel adorned, impossibly glamorous women marching with ferocious intent to somewhere or other, exotic urban cyclists and immaculately tailored businessmen on their phones actually saying things like 'sell it now-drop the stock, buy the bonds' etc etc. We chose to look up where it was light, not down or at eye level where it was dark and Bladerunner-y in tourist like wonder at the sky scrapers all around us. There was blue sky, criss crossed with vapour trails, bright, bright sunlight and London was just beautiful...

    Of course Cornwall is magical too, just have to remember to look upwards from time to time!

  • Little Wonder caravan cafe

    On a sunny but blustery Penzance Promenade today braved the lovely vintage tea caravan, selling tea, coffee, soup, delicious homemade cakes and savouries. It's a stunning location, panoramic views from Penzance to Newlyn and the most delicious brownies and peanut butter cookies this side of the Atlantic. Have a wander down the promenade to check out Little Wonder.

  • Hometown handmade cushions

    Here are some handmade cushions, some of which are to be used and abused in the chalet but they will also be available to buy very shortly on the shop page or by contacting me. Some are individual one offs, some are part of a short run. They are mixed and matched with fabrics from various eras and new fabric. Most are finished with contrast piping and concealed zips and all come with 18" feather pads.

    They will soon be followed by other items including Hometown beach bags and other homewares. Please watch this space for more news!

  • Very brave first Spring flowers

    Hayle Estuary today was if not ablaze with colour then tinted with a certain Spring like hue as very new shoots started appearing nervously from the ground, a sight for sore eyes indeed.

  • Hayle Estuary

    Hayle Estuary on Saturday was just so lovely, sunny and crisp like summer all over again but without the rain. King George's walk was starting to get busy with people rediscovering their bikes, scooters, roller blades and any other wheels they could dig out before the clutches of winter keeps everyone inside again!Recommend the full Veg English special at Johnny's cafe in Hayle which is so warm and welcoming and full of lots of interesting things- handmade bags, vintage bits, second hand furniture and books, Vicky's bread and of course lovely views onto the estuary. Well worth a visit- it's open all year round apart from Christmas and is only 10 minute's walk from the chalet!
