Nothing like a bit of weather (or lack of weather) to bring you out of a blogging hiatus! As the rest of the country revels in snowy delight, Cornwall remains resolutely green- just take a look at this screen shot from the all-too- addictive snowuk website:
The green bit in the bottom left corner? That’s where I am, mope -ing by the window searching the skies for even the smallest flake.
I love the transforming effect of snow- familiar places suddenly look different, the sound and light change and the kids can’t get enough of it- No. 1 has to be physically dragged in the house to thaw out. Like most places, Cornwall looks beautiful in the snow- in 2010 we had 4 snow days, almost unheard of for Cornwall. We grabbed bodyboards and headed for the hills, determined to make the most of the rare treat!
Although I’ve not been blogging much, I’ve been busy making. My ceramic egg boxes are fast becoming a best-seller and I’ve sent them to lovely customers in Australia, America and Canada (as well as the UK). It’s a lovely feeling to get an order from abroad and know that your products have gone global even if on a small scale! This weekend I’m working on some new button designs, including these little foxes who’ll be popping up in my shop in a week or two.
Enjoy the snow if you can!
