It’s all too easy to buy something new, isn’t it? Especially these days. If we rip our top or a few buttons come off our dress, chances are we won’t try and repair or redeem it. Make do and mend no longer applies to our generation. At least not in the way it used to....Read More
While I’ve already attended one beautiful wedding this year far down in a scenic coastal town of Cornwall, we are without doubt entering into wedding season.
