Thank you all so much for your useful and diverse comments on the matter of the old wallpaper. The shop is still in a state of transition at the moment, and I am still undecided about whether to cover it over or not. Once I have finished collaging the other walls I will get a better idea of how the room will look as a whole.

I recently came across this lovely stash of old stamps,

many of them bundled up in lots. Some of the Victorian ones have snippets of writing on. They will come in very handy when doing more collaging. 

I am just open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons at the moment, so if you fancy a stroll by the sea or lunch in the pub in Portscatho one of these cold Spring weekends (Yes, Spring comes early here) do pop by and see what's new!


  1. What a lovely collection of stamps, whatever you do with your walls will look divine, your collages are just beautiful.
    Hugs Lynn xx

  2. Everything you do is lovely. I hope you will do whatever makes your heart sing, for it is your shop. I wish I could visit. Sea Tidings xo

  3. I'd most definitely like to stroll by and pop in...shame I'm at the other end of the country :( The stamps are beautiful, hope they spark something creative :) xxx

  4. Hello C ... hoping very much to come and visit in the Spring. I am sure whatever you decide ... the Sea Garden will look exquisite. Hoping to also visit Scilly Isles. Have you any recommendations for travel and accommodation for the Scilly Isles please?

  5. The wonderful old boards on your wall do look lovely behind the mirror and boudoir chair...

    And the stamps couldn't better fit your colour pallet - the perfect find and something I know you'll weave with magic.

    Happy creating, Niki x
