Home Spun

Home Spun - a fair of hand crafted originals and vintage treasures takes place on 2 August, from 10.30-4.30 pm, at Portscatho Memorial Hall, Cornwall. There are some stands still available for bloggers who are interested in selling their wonderful wares - click the 'Home Spun' picture link on the right hand sidepanel.

I'm definitely going as a way to meet fellow bloggers - Carolyn, Jo are you free? We could car share!


  1. Lesley, I would love to go with you, will mention it to Jo if she doesn't see your blog post! Viv from Hen's Teeth is going to be there and it would be great to meet her!! Will be in touch Lesley xx

  2. I wished I lived down where you are Id certainly sell some things there if I could. I love your paintings and great ideas, so great to meet ahother artist!!

  3. Thanks for visiting Faith.

    And Carolyn, that's great, have also talked to my sister (not a blogger-yet) and she's keen to go too.

  4. This is REALLY weird. I discovered your Blog this morning via your message on my Blog. Although I live in the WEst Midlands we go to Cornwall every year at least twice and ALWAYS stay in Portscatho. I have great friends there - may have to see about coming down for an extra day or two earlier in August than we'd planned!

  5. That would be good Clare - hopefully see you there!

  6. Lesley, I will give you my email address so we can arrange it and then you can also let me know which days you are in the gallery from time to time. I've got a Crow Day tomorrow but I don't think I will get time to pop in tomorrow as I've also got to go to the Post Office and the Library, speak soon, love, Carolyn x
