Cornwall and meeting Poppy Treffry

On my rather brief trip to Cornwall last month...

we did manage to find a bit of sunshine,

a cream tea,

a very lovely sky blue and white beach hut,

and Poppy Treffry's shop of gorgeousness.

By lucky chance on my part Poppy was working in 
the shop...

and yes she is as lovely as the things she makes.

One thing that impressed me very much was that
even her printed tea towels were made in England.

I picked up this card for inspiration.
I'm doing a workshop with Jennifer Collier later
on in the year and we are making paper shoes.

Arty shot of the sea!

A view of the beach.

This little fishing boat reminded me of Poppy's work.

I'm off in search of  shelving in garage
which looks a bit like a junk yard!
Wish me luck!
Have a great day!
