Hello friends.... For those of you who follow this blog but have not visited my little shop by the sea, I thought I would post up a whole load of pics to show you how the shop's looking at the moment......

My 'jars of inspiration', full of vintage fabric scraps, lace, ribbon, buttons; everything you need to create some unique little thing to cherish.

The white and pale blue dresser....

Gertie's crocheted purses, just the perfect size for a mobile phone!

The 'Nature's Purest' range of organic babywear and gifts

Some of Julia's (Midsummer Stitches) gorgeous corsages

The patriotic red, white and blue dresser

The nostalgic childhood window

One of Patsy's delightful handmade notebooks and Jane's hand-stamped gift label cards

Hope you've enjoyed the little tour! If there's something you've spotted that you'd like to know more about, just email me.

Next week I'm off on my annual hols to The Scilly Isles; I look forward to sharing some pictures with you again soon.

Half-term week is always pretty busy in the shop, and this time I had the added business of the Poundbury Textiles Fair (Dorchester) to attend to. But as luck would have it my brother was camping in Dorset this week with his wife and boys, so I was very fortunate to grab some special family time with them. After all, life's not all about work! Above is the view from my little tent. One of the best things about camping is eating breakfast outside in your pyjamas in the sunshine! My sister-in-law Claire's parents were also staying on site in their caravan, and Claire's sister + husband + children came to visit for the day too so there was quite a crowd!

My youngest nephew Christopher seems to like sitting in chairs the wrong way up

Joe, with his beloved Giraffy, is the middle one and a Man U supporter

And Tom (a Chelsea supporter) is the eldest,

But still not too old to suck his thumb!
Hope you too have enjoyed a super time with family this week xxxxx
