Me and the dude are moving into new premises. Edith and Alice will be opening up soon in #stagnes #cornwall. We’ll be selling vintage, preloved treasures and #handmade things, made in the #oldways. I cleaned up my 1901 singer sewing machine and have been using it for my latest projects. I’ll be #handdarning #olddenim, and mending #oldfavourites. #edithandalice are my gran and nan and the shop will be about what they loved and how they lived.
My hansom ol beetle has done me proud. He’s driven from Cornwall to London without missing a heart beat.
Stan is a lovely 1972 1200 beetle, not the speediest of cars, but definitely very steadfast. And for his trustworthy and steadfast manor I decided to give him a wash and polish, and doesn’t he look good!
These little beauties I found sorting out some boxes which I hadn’t sorted for 3 moves (shamefully near on 9 years).
I’ve had these since I was a little girl and they must be around 40yrs old. They will now go in pride of place on the g-plan. I still love bunnies and I still love baby blue.
It’s weird how something can reaffirm who you are in the simplest of ways. Of late I’ve almost lost sight of who I am. These little figures have brought me back round to myself.
Sitting here writing this I can feel all the things alien to me melting away. It’s good to get back to who I am.
