I just had to share a picture of my gorgeous dog with you. Yesterday we had terrible thunder storms here and Josh was terrified. My daughter was researching on the internet ways of calming dogs and found out that dressing them in a tight T shirt can help ! I thought it was a joke but sure enough when I got home she showed me the information on various sites. I can only guess it makes them feel secure, a bit like swaddling a baby. Anyway he did calm down a bit and spent the rest of the evening in the T shirt in a very relaxed mood !
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.
