Harbour Wall, Pop-up Art and St Ives

19 Sep

1. I love the pattern of stones in the harbour wall and the reflections in the empty harbour.

2. The Splash Festival is on in Falmouth and lots of shops have pop-up art in them – paintings and sculptures by local artists. I was delighted to find this gorgeous unicorn in the shop where I bought my ‘going away’ outfit 46 years ago! The artist is Suzanne Crooke. The beautifully decorated Beach hut is also hers.


3 We went to St Ives tonight to see the wonderful John Cooper Clarke and laughed all evening, though there were of course, moments of poignancy too. How he remembers all the words, I just don’t know. St Ives in the early evening light was very lovely.

    That stonework is unusual.

    Why is it called pop up? I was thinking of those cards where things pop up in the middle when you open them.

      It’s called pop-up because the pieces of art are put on display in unexpected places and just for a week or so. They ‘pop-up’ and then disappear! 🙂

    That looks like the perfect place for me to spend a lot of money I don’t have. Just lovely 🙂

    Thank you for the lovely photos. I have very fond memories of St. Ives and I bought a divine handbag in a cute little shop in one of the tiny laneways on the way back up the hill from the beach 🙂 Lakshmi x

      So glad you enjoyed them. We had our honeymoon in St Ives so it has a special feel for us. The tiny lanes are delightful aren’t they? 🙂
