Hi every one, hope your all fine and dandy? I have been back at work over a week now its been hectic.. and my holiday is beginning to seem ages ago already, so I thought i would tell you a bit more about what little old me got up to in Cornwall , and give my self a warm glow that i feel evey time I think about Cornwall!! I have been following the lovely Shevies blog Paperdolly for a while as she loves the kind of things i do and she is just so so lucky to live on a beautiful island off the Cornish coast , how fab is that? Well a few weeks ago she realised a long held dream and open a fantastic shop called Fine and Dandy in Marazion just across the sea from Mount st Micheal on the main land . So on my in my mind list of things i wanted to do/visit was Shevies shop and meet the Lady in person...
When I went into the shop I introduced my self and i was delighted to meet her, she made me feel very welcome and i felt like I had known her for ages!! The shop has a lovely mix of vintage and hand made and unusual new things. heaven!
These were some lovelies on a shelf behind the counter, love the little doll, what do you fancy?
D and the teenagers went across to the island on a boat trip to explore a bit because i think they knew I would be a little while, Shevie filled me in on the car boot scene , and told me of one near Hale at a place called Rosudgeon held on Wednesdays at 10 in the morning, even the car boots are at a more civilised time in Cornwall...( I went and met Shevie there by accident, i spotted her a mile off as she was very stylish with Two Cath Kidston bags, hand and trolley type!) I did get a couple of things ,but my it was busy every body seemed to be looking for vintage!
This is Shevie putting her bargain basket out.. the cat is from up the road and had never try ed to get in her shop before , but the day I went he came in ( my animal magnetism drew him in!) and Shevie had to keep carrying him out as the little fellow kept spraying (not good) so he was like a yo yo springing back in , Shevie and I carried him out Numerous times!)cant remember his name ..
Here is the adorable rogue out side the shop when he finally got the hint!! I was tempted by lots of thing but finally settled on this sweet cloth like vintage doll, don't know what these kind of dolls are called , do you? I also bought a vintage like pink rose necklace. well a girl just has to have a little some think to remember the visit by , doesn't she?
Mine is the big red dolly, picture borrowed from Shevie hope she doesn't mind.
The beautiful Mount St Micheal. can you imagine living here, wouldn't that be a dream?
Don't know if you have done this... but i saw a lovely cottage in St Ives and just had to look through the windows, ho my it was so lovely , full of Cath kidston curtains and fabric and lovely vintage things and just looked so great , I think it was a full time home as they sold lovely bright fish and floats hanging decorations, from there door, it was just a bit further up the little cobbled street from our holiday cottage , and every time i passed by I wondered about the people who were lucky enough to live there and there lives and what it would be like to own it, have you ever done this, please say you have , and i am not the only nosey day dreamer!!!
If this is your cottage and you read this blog sorry for staring through your window its only because i loved it!!
D bought me one of these fishy floats as a surprise its hung in my back hall way looking bright and cheerful1
Don't you just love this door?
A couple of you asked which bag in the end went on holiday with me, da dar .. the new one, the girls in Cath kidston swooped on my bag and told me they had never seen this design and it must just have been made for the Japanese market, I will tell you next post what I purchased from the little emporium.. I was very, well fairy, not really restrained!! have a fab week end and ill drop by to see whats happening in your worlds ,ho I do enjoy doing that!!
