So, how do I manage to take the lunch break that I've recognised as important for my wellbeing without going on a wild spending spree in the beautiful independent shops around my patch. Easy! I just frequent the libraries, take photos and wander backstreets where I haven't been before, like this hidden away footpath in Dartmouth.
And here are my latest discoveries from the little arty shops and galleries around town. I'm hoping that these will tempt those of you with money to support local artisans and for all of us, perhaps we can take inspiration from the work of others to produce beautiful things of our own.
