Buttons, Tinners’ Hounds and Ferns

18 Oct

I discovered a new shop in town today, The Craft Collective, where most things have been made in Cornwall but not all – there were some gorgeous African buttons  made by Thalia-Mai Nero.

I have shown you our Welly Dogs before but I love them so much, here they are again! Made by David Kemp, they are really called the Tinners’ Hounds and were fashioned from miners’ boots and then cast.

Walking home I found ferns on a wall, and a lone lost bloom on the path.
