    Joanne Linder emailed to tell me how she has ‘bitten the bullet’ and decided to follow her dream. ‘I have spent the past few months designing and creating a range of handcrafted, vintage-inspired home and table decor for special occasions such as tea parties, luncheons, weddings and showers,’ she explains. ‘Everything is inspired by my British heritage, love for tea, classic romance and imagery from a bygone era.’ There are some lovely ideas here so take a look at Vintage Twee.

    At this time of year, when the sun shines, the sea is calm and it is low tide, you’ll find us down on the beach shrimping. Brown shrimps dredged from the sand with a special net are a highlight of living a stone’s throw from the sea. To eat, just rinse, boil for a couple of minutes and peel. Serve with a cold glass of white wine!
