Doesn't this gorgeous treasure trove look so inviting? :)
It was our destination today, to the beautiful little fishing village of Johnshaven, to deliver my basket of notebooks... the order that I was blessed to have made from the recent Open Studio Event.
I never got photos of the inside and all the beautifully handcrafted lovelies that were nestled within....small child was at this point in need of a sedating car journey :)
The photo below has been borrowed from the Starfish studio website where you can have a look at all the lovely handcrafted British items Kate sells and even buy one or two! So much goodness!
The highlight of the trip though, has to be Kate's (Star Fish Owner's) 11 year old daughter who showed me an incredible book that she had meticulously hand crafted. Wow! You'll have to take my word that it was stunning and VERY inspiring. Being an avid "craft pusher" it fills my heart with JOY no end to see creativity oozing from young ones :)
Followed by a trip to a nearby farm that sells the biggest and yummiest Strawberry Tarts you've ever seen.....I'd have to say it's been, all in all, a WONDER-filled day :)
PS. go check out the lovely Kate at her bloggety blog here :)
