I just had to share with you the lovely bits of ephemera that have just arrived on my doormat. As you know I love anything from the 20s and 30s was excited about receiving these wonderful bridge tally cards. I spotted them in the lovely Etsy shop Redheadvintagepaper (well worth a visit)and spent ages deliberating over which to have. Yesterday they finally arrived having travelled all the way from America. They have a temporary home on my kitchen dresser while I consider where to put them.
Then, this morning some lovely scraps arrived of cute little 1920s children, very Mabel Lucie Attwell like. They all have googly eyes which give them rather startled expressions !
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.
