I purchased this elegant Edwardian chest of drawers / vanity dressing table chiffonier with oval swinging mirror, a few months ago now and thought it would look stunning painted. The piece was solid mahogany and consisted of three large drawers with the original handl...

Following a spectacular bonfire and fireworks night this year with the stunning harbour town of Polperro as our back drop, I thought I should really share some of Cornwall’s fabulous Christmas markets that we’ve tried, tested and over indulged in (hic!), over recent ye...
