Beach Cook Out at Holywell Bay

  Nothing beats an evening at the beach in Summer. We have had quite a few over recent weeks but last night was all the more special as we decided to try out Tony’s new Kelly Kettle set by having a beach BBQ with some friends that are visiting and their children. You can burn […]

An Afternoon in Beautiful St. Agnes

When we were house-hunting for our dry-run on moving to Cornwall (two years ago when we didn’t actually move) I had it in my head that we were moving to St. Agnes. As you probably know we did eventually move to Cornwall but not to St. Agnes, although we’re not too far away so today […]

Spring 2017 Playlist

Last Saturday the weather was pretty ropey, but we found a brilliant Farmers Market in our local village, we came home laden with bags of homemade and locally produced goodies including these beautiful flowers (I think they’re poppies – although I’m sure some one will put me right), they were £1.20 for the bunch and […]

Coastally Inspired . New products

It has been an incredible few weeks. The weather has been fantastic in Cornwall and we have had so many friends and family visit, it has been so good to share all the new experiences and discoveries in our new home by the coast.

The decision was made after a family half term trip to Cornwall, where virtually everywhere we visited (even some of the car parks) would have been free had we been National Trust members. I think in the end it was a particularly special jacket potato […]

Summer Glamping Wish List

I’m the kind of person who needs a project. Whether it’s demolishing walls or learning a new craft, I like to feel I have something on the boil, challenging me, making me think. Otherwise I get a bit restless, bored, then melancholic and then just downright fed up. Throughout the Summer work goes a little […]

May in pictures

How fast did May go? Yipee for Summer though! Here’s a quick insta round up of what went on in the last month of Spring… I’m still struggling with the fact that we aren’t moving to Cornwall (yet?!) so I bought myself a Cornwall themed mug from the wonderful Sparks Clothing We got a new […]

I have taken some time to realise this, but I have actually missed blogging! So here it is, One Tidy Studio, my brand spanking, shiny, new offering to the Blogsphere. Now, I am not new to blogging, but I am new to being excited about it. One Tidy Studio is going to be a place […]
