Still here!

 Gosh it's been a long time, but I'm still here! Sorry for my very long absence......
The shop takes up all of my time; this Summer especially has just been exhausting, I think partly because I was still coping emotionally  with the death of my Dad, and seeing Mum struggling with her grief and doing my best to support her.
But I'm finding my groove once more now that things have quietened down. Autumn colours are creeping into the displays and  antique dyed linens are neatly stacked ready to find a new lease of life on someone's dinner table, dressing table or bed.

A shelf of Patsy's beautiful Liberty fabric covered notebooks
and these 19th C 'hexies' would make a lovely feature on the front of a small cushion or lavender pillow.
See you again soon, I promise......


  1. Hi Christine- great to have you back after a five month rest- just love your items in your cottage shop - delightful. All the very best to you. Cheers. KEV. (Sydney- Australia).

  2. Glad you're back, Christine. Your shop looks lovely with all the autumn colours, especially the dyed linen! I will try and make it to Portscatho, next time we're down :)
    At one point, we had a Liberty shop in Exeter. I don't think there are many outside of London. Sadly it closed, I loved looking around and buying something small :)

  3. Welcome back, grief is a nasty monster which takes as long as it takes. Your shop looks fabulous, I wish I could visit in person, fingers are crossed for a trip South next year.

  4. I love the look of your little shop. I wish I could be here to discover the treasuries inside. I am french and I guess it will be difficult for me to visit your area again.
    Bel automne à vous !
