Today I went down to Portsactho to see my friend Christine who owns the lovely little shop, 'The Sea Garden'. This shop is a treasure trove of beautiful little items of antique and handmade furniture, jewellery, linen, china and so, so much more. Christine has a wonderful 'eye' and this tiny shop and I mean tiny is just a joy to be in.
Well, joy of joys, Christine has offered me the above dresser to display and sell my work from. I am thrilled and of course said yes. Im sure I can pack a lot of stuff onto those few shelves and will have a trial month in December. My gallery was at the top of the hill from Portscatho and in fact was where Christine started out but like me she found it to quiet and she had the chance to move down the hill to this little shop which is just a one up one down of doll house proportions. Christine stores fabrics and stock upstairs, even this is beautifully arranged, the girl just cant help herself! Well here are a few more photos of The Sea Garden if you like any thing or want to see what Christine has for sale she has just started a shop online with www.whatidlove.co.uk
I have been busy painting some angels for the V&H fair this week which I will show you when they are done and I hope to have a go at making some hand painted dolls too over the weekend. Tomorrow is our afternoon out and we hope to go to Polperro, will take photos of course! See you tomorrow.
