I have built up a little collection of handmade Victorian and Edwardian sleeves. 

Some are still in pairs and others I have only one.

Such painstaking work and attention to detail is quite astonishing to our eyes today.

We seem to have lost so much in our modern dress in terms of beauty, delicacy and feminine allure.

Just imagine what it must have felt like to wear such precious garments......

Today I've been harvesting my lavender, and it felt like I'd turned a little corner of Calstock into the South of France. Such a fragrance.......

I planted five lavenders in the gravel outside J's flat last spring and they enjoy full sun all day long, so perfect conditions. I may sell some of it in bunches in the shop, and the rest shall be dried for future use in lavender cushions. How do you like to use your lavender?
