The second week in St Ives we ventured out to Trevarno which is set in wonderful grounds including a field full of different variations of daffodils, as you can imagine the scent was fantastic. There is also a small toy museum and gardening museum there so after a yummy piece of cake and cup of tea we went to have a look. The highlights were a hand painted canvas wendy house from 1890, some wonderful old seed signs and displays of garden inspired bits and bobs. The toy museum contained some wonderful items ( some older than others.....some Mr D remembered!) including a toy miniature drapers shop complete with small rolls of fabric, ooh I was very tempted to take that home! Later in the week we went back to the Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden which, in the blazing sunshine was a joy. No trip of course is complete without sniffing out a vintage shop and this one was tucked away behind the main street opposite another shop which was to let.......well one can dream! Hope you all had a great Easter break whatever you got up to.
