Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside…

The week before last, my boyfriend and I  drove down for a few days in Cornwall, where we stayed in a Yurt. The weather was amazing, and it was pretty much the perfect holiday, full of seriously idyllic things like making dough and cooking pizza in the wood fired oven on the camp site, whilst watching the sunset…

We also did one night in a hotel in Penzance before hitting the road back to London. Penzance is a funny ol’ place. It seemed to have one road with lovely old pubs and great shops and restaurants, and then a slightly grotty high street. But I did find a great independent stationers on that high street, and some cards in the window caught my eye. They were beautiful designs and we thought they summed up our holiday pretty well – so of course, I had to buy some. They’re by Kate Broughton. I knew I recognised the name and it was only later that I remembered that I had bought some of her nail art transfers a couple of years ago.

Deckchair card, £2.50. This one represents all the time we spent on Cornwall’s gorgeous beaches. This is part of the Summer Cards series.

Oystercatcher card, £2.50. This one doesn’t represent anything necessarily, but I just really liked it. This is part of the Coastal Bird Cards series.


Bicycle card, £2.50. And this one represents our bike ride from Mawgan Porth to Padstow (turns out Cornwall is a lot hillier than we realised…). This one is also in the Summer Cards series. You should check out her stuff, she has some REALLY lovely cards – including a vegetable series, with seeds attached, and a bird series with bird seed attached.
