Vintage corner

It's a gorgeous, crisp, cold and sunny morning here, just the type I like. The first of October is always a special day for us, five years ago today I "officially" started up the business and it's also my brothers 21st Birthday today. I think a cake shall have to be made in celebration this evening, or maybe a crumble, perfect for enjoying in front of a toasty fire with a glass of bubbly.

As promised, here are some of the little vintage bits and bobs we've got in the shop just now. I'm a bit of a sucker for old china so it took a lot for me to be able to part with these little lovelies. Gregg talked me into keeping a few of the lovely old glass bottles, so they are lined up on the window sill with flowers in them :)

Aren't those little teacup, saucer and tea plate sets just adorable?

I also found this cute little stool, perfect for display in the shop, and it already had that lovely distressed look, so it all needed was a bit of a clean.

So, off out to the studio now to get on with some more sewing, it's nice and cosy out there as we've got a little radiator timed to come on in the morning as there's nothing worse than going out to a cold workroom!

See you soon,

L xx

The little blue jugs took me right back in time to my grandmother's house. That was her china. K

Why are we so far away from each other?! You deserve a cake and a party for your 5 years as a business-woman extraordinare! I know if I lived nearby I'd be possibly the most regular customer, and probably the most annoying ;)

Love your new vintage collection, though I couldn't part with such lovely things, it suits your business ethos perfectly!

Love the vintage bits you're selling. Wish I lived a bit nearer so I could pop in for a better look. Love both the cream and green jugs.
