I hope this post will make up for those missing a bit of vintage cheer here on Candy Pop. The photographs were taken when my family and I spent a precious day with Shevie of Fine and Dandy.

I met Shevie on Flickr in 2010 and so while in Cornwall celebrating my father’s 70th we decided to pay her a visit. Our first stop was Shevie’s Marazion shop called Fine and Dandy, followed by lunch at The Godolphin Arms (good food, great view) and then a walk to St Michael’s Mount, including a tour of Shevie’s amazing home.

I’ll confess I was absolutely speechless and I struggled to take these photographs because there was so much to take in. I’ve never seen anything like it and the attention to detail in her beautifully curated displays was remarkable. Many of the things reminded me of my childhood, and my mum – a fellow antique doll collector – thought she’d found a little piece of heaven in Cornwall. We both said ‘wow’ a lot!

It was an honour to be given a private tour of Shevie’s breathtaking home and to hear about what daily life is like on St Michael’s Mount. She said at the end of the day, when all the day trippers have departed, it’s lovely to enjoy the tranquility and peace of the island. What a magical place to call home.

Shevie can be found on Instagram,Β she also has shops on Etsy andΒ eBay. More Cornwall to follow soon.
