After the wintery weather of the last few weekends it has felt great this weekend getting out and about again in a bit of sunshine. I have managed to squeeze in a bit of flea market and indoor boot sale shopping both days. Our Easter Vintage Fair is fast approaching and I need to start gathering some pretties together for my stall. I seem to have been drawn to things that remind me of Spring, flowers and birds and pastel colours. I couldn't resist the little lamp with a patchwork of vintage fabric on the shade. I also love the pretty traveling coat hanger case complete with hangers.The rose table mats were destined for my stall but seem to have found a little spot in my kitchen already.
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.
