Skip to week 6!

Oh dear what happened to the last five weeks? No blogging I'm afraid, having recovered from my poorly state (thankyou for all your good wishes, so lovely of you all!) we have been making up for lost time and have so far fitted intwo holidays one to the Hampshire coast and then a week ago to Cornwall, more specifically Marazion. Most of the photos are evening ones as the camera I have at the moment is quite bulky, so there are no photos of St Ives and the Porthmeaor beach cafe or of Mousehole, sorry!

Luckily for us we had fantastic weather and as well as the body boarding and beach fun, managed to visit lots of galleries. The one above is on the Trellowarren estate, my mother being a Vivian this was a place I had longed to visit and it really left me speechless (quite a feat!)

It also has a beautiful little plant nursery run by the loveliest of ladies and a rather large echinacea plant found its way home with us, it's stunning flowerhead swaying in front of me all the way back home!

A shot inside one of the galleries at Trellowarren, it has two!

Set in beautiful gardens the house is very grand, not open to the public as it is a private residence.

Gig rowers out on Mounts Bay in the late evening.

Sarah rediscovered her pocket kite on evening walks across to St Michaels Mount.

We stayed in the most stunning holiday home, a converted coach house. So much space and light, we are stealing some ideas for the new kitchen at home.
Such a shame we only had a week there it was really tough coming home, but we have to be back for Lauras french exam result today (eeek!) and we are off again to morrow for a quick visit back to Hampshire for the bank Holiday weekend.
I will post more photos soon of some great vintage finds, and yes I have been sewing, it's been a struggle to keep the shops stocked though, but I have some new fabrics and will be using and listing those next week hopefully.

Glad to hear you are feeling well again. Those pics are fantastic! We spent 2 weeks in Cornwall last month but the weather was bit soggy!
