Agh! It has been weeks since I was posted, but that's not because I have nothing to tell you. On the contrary actually!
First things first. I'm closing the shop next week to have a wee holiday. I'm heading off to France for a week. I'll spend some time at my aunts house in Lege near Nantes then the weekend at Rock en Seine. Its the third year in a row for me at Rock en Seine. Its a great festival. Not too big and the weather is usually good. Can't ask for much more.
Exciting things have been happening at C&C too. I've hosted my first ever hen party and the tearoom was even used in a photoshoot for a vintage style clothing website.
A couple of weeks ago I was visited at the shop by Garry MacLennan, a Glasgow based photographer who was looking for a location to shoot some photographs. I was chuffed to be asked but even more chuffed to find out I could actually get involved! I got to be an extra! Make up done, dress on. Lots of fun.

It is tea parties galore this month too at C&C. I have two groups of ladies celebrating a hen do in August. I had my first group on Saturday. The had a beaufiful afternoon tea followed by cupcake decorating and fabric brooch making.
The shop was a little quiet today so I had some time to rearrange the crafts in the shop and find some space for some lovely new stock from Cornwall based crafters Crumpetty Tree. Not only is the name wonderful, but their work too. I was immediately attracted to their range of animal brooches and prints.
