A few days ago I was reading someone's blog and was really taken with some pretty china they had found. Unfortunately I can't remember which blog it was I saw it on ! Anyway,by the strangest coincidence I spotted some of the same china in the window of a local charity shop today. Of course I just had to have it and couldn't believe how much of it there was and such a bargain price.It is a 1950s pattern by Colclough China. I have given it a good wash and will pack it away until I decide what to do with all. I think some of it will find it's way on to my kitchen dresser shelves and I guess it will come in very handy for the vintage tea room we are having at our November fair.
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.
