Unless you’ve been off grid, up a tree, in the middle of the ocean or fast asleep, you’ll know all about the ALS ice bucket challenge, which has swept the globe and proves just how much an original idea coupled with a handheld device can capture the imagination of the world AND raise money for good causes. 

After much inspection of the ice bucket challenge films on facebook, youtube, instagram, etc, our winner is Kermit the Frog, who bravely does his NAKED. Close second is the challenge by Donatella Versace’s, which can be viewed here


If Narnia had a backstage, the Wardrobe Department is IT. 

We can’t wait for next year… thanks to all who visited the Pencil Atelier in the Wardrobe Department. See you next year!

NOSTALGIC ODE TO PORT ELIOT 2014 by Mrs Rubbish

Port Eliot Festival 2014 has been and gone

We really got our fashion freak on

Girls in stripes, kids with dots

Fashionanigans lots and lots.

The sun was bright

it was such a delight

To have some fun

And dance all night.

The fashion show was the BEST

With kids parading,

grownups cheering

Goodness they were all so well dressed. 

Flowers, ribbons everywhere

tapestries plaited into long hair

Sipsmith cocktails, Stephen Jones,

Promenading, proper scones.

Friends and family, mucking about

River swimming, hanging out…

What could be better or more fun

Than Port Eliot Festival in the sun.

Three cheers for Cathy and Perry too

Not to mention Lark and Roo

Who open the gates and invite us all

To their magnificent, glorious FESTIVAL!!!!!

PS Mrs Rubbish would like to thank her team of makers and doers who helped the magic come to life in the Wardrobe Department. You know who you are. xxxx

PPS more pics to come!

Who was Valentine anyway? A priest, beheaded on this day in 269 AD, martyred for his faith and a patron saint of, among other things, bee keeping, fainting and love. #valentine
