New Year's Resolution

A Vintage Year....

Well here goes - my first post on a new blog which I have been meaning to start for a very long time and have now finally plucked up the courage as part of my New Year resolution list ~ which happens to be as long as my arm again this year...

I have been inspired by so many other vintage obsessed bloggers (I didn't realise there were quite so many afflicted with this wonderful passion) and encouraged by lots of lovely people that I have met over the last few months to put pen to paper (or press a few buttons on a keyboard!). December was truly, madly, busy! There was smoke coming out of my sewing machine until the early hours most days as I tried to get stock ready for craft and gift fairs. I had an especially lovely time at the Holiday Bazaar hosted by the Chiltern American Women's Association ~ my idea of bliss is to share thoughts about collecting and making with vintage textiles, buttons, ribbons, jewels and more ~ such a festive, friendly atmosphere!

Now the Christmas holidays are nearly over and my brain is already working overtime with lots of new ideas and inspirations ~ a good excuse (as if I needed one) to stock up with more vintage goodies. I look forward to sharing my 'loved in a previous life' finds with you all!


  1. Yay, you posted!!! Will add you to my favourites immediately. Your stall looks beautiful. I was so sad to see on your site that the heart made with a piece of wedding veil was sold - though pleased for you of course. I thought it was gorgeous and so romantic. I didn't know you were a Helen Drewett fan too, I've got about 15 of her works, they are so lovely.

    Take care, Mel xxx

  2. Hi, I have come over from Country in the Town!

    Love Lou xxx

  3. Awww bless your little girl, I'm so glad to hear she got on well. Perhaps it's scarier for us than them! So reassuring when that first day is over, I hope she keeps on loving it. You won't know yourself with a bit of free time!!! I have to wait til Jan 09 til I have some child free time in the day but I'm making the most of them while I can :)
