I went on my hols

Kennack Sands ~ Reserved
I did, the family, some friends and I!!! But did I take any pics??? Nope - and yes I am kicking myself now! Mind you the weather was appalling , more like October than August - rain and winds - in fact my feet got so muddy - I refuse to wear wellies ( I was on my summer hols) but camping probably wasn't the best place to rebel, as the story my poor feet are telling now! Mullion is a beautiful part of Cornwall, quite wild (the way I like it) and the coast line is superb. Kynance Cove is a definite one to inspire a future design - in fact I can feel one bubbling up ;) Take a look at the website pics - much better than the ones I would have taken - because yes it was raining AGAIN!!

The Colour of Sunsets

Being neither north of south really on the Lizard Peninsula - does that make sense? - I saw some fabulous sunsets - on the rare occassion we had sun and this one sums up all the colours I saw. Beads by Caroline Cash of course with delicious Karen Hill Tribe Silver! Of course we all know the saying red sky @ night Shepherds Delight - which means a dry day following and I think the most perfect sunset I saw did actually mean this!! WE actually made it to the beach!

Of course now we're home and now preparing for my Elli's (and mine) birthdays - a seven year olds party - please pray for dry weather!!! I can't believe she is seven - doesn't time fly when you are having fun!!

Oh I thought the name sounded familiar! We visited the Lizard a couple of weeks ago (I found that a nearby coffee shop makes the best brownies- ever). We stayed at St Just which I absolutely love. I don't know what it is about the place but I find it so peaceful. I love Cornwall no matter the weather (and it DID rain while we were there).

I'm glad you're back Jo so that I can enjoy your blog once again.

Sounds like you had fun, even if it was a bit of a wash-out. I have been dreaming of coming to Cornwall camping this summer (I was 2 last time I came that far down, so don't remember much!). A colleague at work put me onto the Kynance Cove web pics about 6 weeks ago and I have been hoping for some real August weather ever since. I have a couple of weeks off to play with at the end of the month, but it's not looking promising weather-wise :(
The new jewellery you have posted is beautiful, as always.

On every vacation some rain must fall. Okay, I just made that up. But it still sounds like you had a good time!

Beautiful jewelry too!
