So far the holidays have been just lovely with some sun, some warmth, much chilling out and a fair amount of work to boot. A good mix in all, especially when plenty of scrumptious meals like this are added in.
Today consisted of a lazy start where the coffee pot seemed never-ending and a trip to Penryn Quay was called for in order to get some photos for the website. The light was perhaps a little harsh by the time I got there but it was so good to see these familiar sights - yes, I still have my rope obsession (which is not quite as bad as it may sound!).
How beautiful is this shade of aqua? I have another obsession at the moment based around this colour and we are currently turning out tiny bathroom into an aqua inspired place to dwell where the walls reflect soft tones into the bathwater and a newly laid wooden floor replaces the manginess of earlier and is bliss to walk on....sigh... Oh and if anyone has an old and quite possible tatty cupboard they would like to give me to finish then room then please feel free. Always worth a shot isn't it!
Just love the way these ropes tangle around rusty rings. Even the concrete bollard takes on a more appealing look. No? Ok, I do tend to romanticise wherever possible but it works for me.
I was really there to take some photos of new products such as this new addition to my Lauren Tote range - this colourway is Autumn Leaf and is now available here.
I have quite fallen in love with the russet tones of this one and now feel a need to make some clothes for the autumn based around olives and soft orange but more of my dressmaking adventures another day as I have only got as far as purchasing a pattern so far!
While I was there I had another go at photos of my Cornish Harbour tea cosy as the light had been so bad before. There was the slightest of breezes gently billowing over the harbour and I think I provided a fair bit of amusement for the fishermen on the quay as I raced across the ropes to save the cosy before it hit the water!
Two photos was all I managed before my dignity was completely lost - note to self: DO NOT undertake product photography on a breezy day wearing a short skirt! Anyhoo, here we are: Cornish Harbour Tea Cosy by Pipany.
Hope you're enjoying your day x
