Some new arrangements in the shop, with glass and porcelain in pretty pastel shades taking centre stage.
I love these old shillings and pence price tags, and the cards with the named items upon them are from some sort of Victorian card game - a real curiosity.
Sincere apologies to anyone who came to the shop on Thursday or Saturday this last week and found it closed; I'm afraid I had a nasty infection and could not open. Keeping my mind occupied by making things with my hands was the best way to cope with the level of pain. I consider myself very blessed to be creative; it is so much more than a means to make a living. It is the very essence of my being and helps me cope with all manner of life's little trials.
A few weeks ago I booked a little holiday for my birthday; four nights in a Landmark Trust property in Penzance, and I am so relieved that I am well enough now to take this welcome break which starts Monday. I shall post about it when I return. It does mean that the shop will be closed this Thursday 14th February, but Patsy and I will be there on Friday and Saturday.
