The cushion above is a favourite view of mine, it depicts Rame Head, which is at the eastern tip of Whitsand bay and can be seen from the back of the chalet. I bought it locally, at the studio of Helen Round in Millbrook our closet village and there’s a whole range of items with Rame Head on including mugs, bags and tea towels and I’ll let you into a secret, mine is a tea towel that I turned into a cushion cover – it was far too nice to use for drying up. Helen’s work can also be found at The Upcycled Home, a shop in the stables at Mount Edgecumbe but I hear that she will have her own enterprise there from March 3rd. To welcome Helen to Mount Edgecumbe the Upcyled Home are giving away a set of her linen napkins, all you have to do is post a comment on their Facebook page here for a chance to win.
Helen Round, The Barrow Centre, [opposite the Blacksmith’s Forge], Mount Edgecumbe Country Park, Cremyll, Cornwall from March 3rd.
