I don't know where the time has gone! Summer has been a haze of sunshine and it is still very warm here in the West country. It has been too hot to do blog posts and I was busy having a birthday at the end of June. We went to the seaside. Holidaying in beautiful Dorset. The Jurassic Coast at Durdle Door.
I found a magical dog stone on the beach at Lulworth Cove which is walking distance to Durdle Door. The stone is all natural but it does look like somebody has painted a dog's head.
Lulworth Cove which is also stunning, reminds me of Cornwall and the light is very similar as well. It was busy there although my photos do not show many people on the beaches.
I was annoyed to find that people leave so much rubbish around along the walkways. We all need to look after these places of natural beauty and should always make sure to take our rubbish home after visiting.
We will be going back towards the end of summer when it is less busy. I'm looking forward to a more peaceful visit.
I Have a Weird Shop!
I have a newish shop that I opened late last year called Weird Fox . I decided to move away from Etsy and try out Bigcartel instead. It was a lot easier to set up and is less complicated than Etsy with it's layout. I have been busy making new stock ready for Christmas although progress is slow at the moment what with the heat and holidays. I've already sold out of these velvet cushions and dream pillows that have my designs printed on them. Some of the cards and Zigsa cat jewellery pieces have sold as well.
They have an Ollie velvet cushion, an original illustration, and cards too. Cards and postcards have been popular with customers. They send me photos of them framed and they put them up on their walls to decorate their homes which is really great to see.
These Ziggy earrings are listed in the shop at the moment and there is a matching necklace too. Also available are some mixed cards. Weird Fox Shop
