Well, it's been a hectic weekend. It was mum's 60th and we also had relatives arrive from Ireland to stay. It has been great fun catching up and yesterday sitting in the sunshine and relaxing. I had no time for boot sales this weekend but did squeeze in a little local table top sale on Saturday morning. I found this lovely old Arthur Woods piggy bank as well as a few bits of Babbacombe wear, some pretty mismatched cups and saucer and a Tala cook's measure so not bad I guess for half an hour's rummaging ! Oh well back to work now......
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.
