Today I went down to Marazion to visit Shevie and deliver (at last!) her prize for winning my giveaway last month. The sun was shining and warm and St. Michael's Mount looked quite a picture.
I parked up and walked along the beach.........the sea was sparkling
In a side street I spied the entrance to Shevie's shop, "Fine and Dandy'
oh what a scene of candy-coloured delight greets your eyes as you walk in.....
As Shevie unwrapped the giveaway I wandered around and took more photos, stopping to chat and share experiences of running a shop. We have so many mutual friends it's surprising that we hadn't met sooner!
Everything is so beautifully presented, just look at those hand-stamped price tags!
(I love the blue colour of the floor - it's a brave decision to go for a colour but boy does it enhance the harmonious look of the decor)
So did I succumb? of course........but I can't show you what I bought because that will spoil the surprise for certain individuals
It was so lovely to meet you Shevie, another like-minded vintage fanatic!
I bought a pasty and sat in the sun out of the wind and just gazed upon this marvellous view. The mount appeared dark and foreboding with the sun so bright behind. Shevie has the good fortune to actually live on this fairytale isle.
As I reach the car again I take one last look back at the mount with its castle atop and little harbour and cluster of houses beneath. The tide has covered the causeway..... Shevie will be taking her children home from school on the ferry by now.......
