This post is for Deb, one of my best friends and fellow lover of all things vintage. She is on holiday in the US for three weeks and I am already missing her. I think she is in Pensylvania right now and will be trawling flea markets and auctions as I speak. The pictures are of some of the cards she has made for me recently. She is a very creative lady who does lovely altered art some of which she sells on her etsy shop, 'Vintage Wants Not Needs'. Anyway I am sure she is having a wonderful time and will be back before I know it.
I live in the middle of England with my husband and teenage daughter and our naughty dog Josh a bearded, border collie cross and two chickens.I live in a corner house which is a 1920s semi near the centre of town. I love old houses and my last house was typically Victorian but I have grown to love the style of the 1920s and 1930s. My
passion for hunting out vintage treasures at flea markets and in charity shops means that I constantly add to my collection. I love vintage eiderdowns, textiles, tins, kitchenalia, ephemera and home wares from the 1930s through to the 1950s.
I work full time in a very demanding job so my hobby keeps me sane and allows me to relax and switch off from day to day pressures.
My husband runs the Northampton vintage fairs which gives me another excuse to indulge my passion for vintage.
I enjoy reading a number of blogs which I have listed. They have been a source of inspiration and pleasure to me and gave me the the confidence to start this blog.
