 How are you all managing out there? I thought I'd share some photos of joyous Spring flowers to wish all mothers a very 'Happy Mother's Day'. There are probably lots of you who weren't able to see your loved ones today because of the contact restrictions, but  sacrifices have to be made for the common cause.
My shop is now closed until who knows when? I was feeling rather bereft yesterday as my shop really is the focus of my life, and I have been working hard at home all Winter making things ready for the season, which would ordinarily start next week with the start of the school holidays. 

To those of you who may still be planning on coming to Cornwall to spend the Easter holidays, may I ask you to think very carefully before you do - I know it's a beautiful place to escape to, but Cornwall has a higher than average elderly population who are feeling very vulnerable right now. So far there have been few cases of Coronavirus in Cornwall, and a sudden influx of visitors could make that number soar, as well as deplete our little village shops of food and essentials. We only have one hospital in the county with facilities to cope with the virus.
 So please, stay put in your own home, and stay safe, and we will get through these unprecedented circumstances together.


  1. Thank you for sharing your spring flowers, nature goes on even in sad times xxx

  2. Hello Christine- so sorry to hear that your Shop will be closed for the time being- this must be very difficult for you. We visited Polperro back in April-May of 2015 on out Trafalgar Tour - beautiful part of the World. I wish you well and safety there. Best Wishes. KEV. (Australia).

  3. Hello Christine, glad you are OK but sorry you had to close the shop as I know what it means to you. You just keep on making lovely things for when we can get back to hopefully normality. If you ever want a chat you have my number. Lots of love to you and your Mum. Janexxxxx
