Homespun... and the beauty of Portscatho! ;-)

Yesterday, at 6am, Mr S and I set off for Portscatho, Cornwall to take part

in the Homespun Fair.

We love this little trip down to the Roseland peninsula.

If it hadn't been for Christine, Jane and Gertie organising

this event then we may never have fallen in love

with this little 'jewel of a place'!

The views are stunning and the walk along the coast path

just HAS to be done.

When the fair was over, we did a mad dash down the hill

to get to Christine's delightful shop,

'The Sea Garden'.

I loved this painting, hanging on her wall.

And the shop was crammed full of delightful things.

And the Homespun Fair?

Well that was delightful too OF COURSE!

There was a good mix of gorgeous, vintage items

and beautiful, handmade creations.

We met up with some lovely people..and...quite unexpectedly...

I've found myself signing up to do another fair this coming Saturday!

This time, it'll be near north Cornwall coast, at a place called St Agnes!

More details to follow re:


So watch this space!!

Looks fabulous! Lucky tourists to get such a wonderful vintage treat whilst in the area. 'Vintage in a Teacup' sounds extremely promising too!

I really must take exception to this blog

Where oh where are more pictures of the lovely Meggy Moo?

Now she IS gorgeous

What is the point of being a Granfer well connected to the blogger herself, if there are no perks

Come on Snippets, get it sorted


Sorry blogland, you may tire of her as a subject but hopefully appreciate that I never will
