Xylophone, Brass Owl and Shop Window

03 Dec

1   This video was sent my way this morning and my daughter now tells me that it is an advert. I hadn’t realised and anyway, it is rather lovely so here is the link to a delightful video of a kind of xylophone in the forest.

2   We love our brass owl trivet, especially when he’s all freshly polished as he is today.

3   The shop windows in our town are full of decorations made by local school children and they are looking very beautiful. This one is by pupils of Redruth School (which was once Tolgus School and where my lovely Dad used to be the Headteacher many years ago!)

    How wonderful that the children’s decorations get used for displays in the local shops! I love Cornwall for so many reasons and your posts make me want to live there more and more! 🙂
