Craft Mementos from Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

I thought I might share with you some of my holiday souvenirs. There were no extravagant purchases, more a case of hand crafted mementos. I would much rather buy an item on holiday that has been created or crafted by local craftspeople. My small way of supporting artists and craftspeople in the local area.  I was immediately drawn to these decorated mussel shells I bought from the Charlestown Gallery in Charlestown. I also like the slightly misshaped ceramic buttons from The Craft Kiln also in Charlestown.  I hope to create my own piece of art for my bathroom using these items and an old picture frame.

On the Isles of Scilly I was quite taken with the handmade glass Light Bulb coasters from the Phoenix Craft Studios. I immediately knew this would be destined for my craft/sewing room, which includes teal and pink colours. A special mention to the Phoenix Craft Studio, lots of talented crafts people where you can not only buy their creations but also view their workshops.
