About Me

My photo
Ivybridge, Devon, United Kingdom
Hi Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Sue and I live with my lovely husband who I will call Mr V and our nine year old daughter Miss V in a small town in South Devon. Everyone who lives here talks about it as The Village so that will be my blog name- Vintage fron the Village Also in our family are two cats, two guinea pigs some tropical fish and a pond with goldfish I have always loved making things and love pretty vintage things which I hope to sell as well to fund my passion! I am addicted to buying fabric,ribbons, buttons,wool etc and love to visit charity shops and car boot sales.I love glasses of wine, gardening, crochet (easy stuff!) and I am a big E-Bay fan ! I also love to read other people's blogs which inspired me to start my own. I look foward to hearing from you Best wishes Sue

Take cover - low flying blackbirds

 Just a little follow up on the pie funnels - well what a success that find was - they are as we speak winging their way across the globe
 Some within the UK , several to Australia and several to the USA
Most of them have gone to new homes now - just a few left and my nest will be empty
I have kept a couple to look at on the kitchen window sill (am supposed to be de-cluttering he he)
Have a good week

I have a pen-friend !


Sorry no pics or anything fancy in this quick post,  today I my first letter from my new pen friend came flying through the letter box onto the mat
Luckily it is non-pupil day at school today so I had just sat down to a fairly leisurely breakfast so perfect timing
It was from the lovely Marina at www.evelynmayvintage.blogspot.co.uk as you may have seen she has organised a great pen friend idea
We seem to have loads in common so I am really looking forward to it all. We were away last week so I have only had chance to send a quick card so far but I will be writing a proper letter very soon.

By the way the last few weeks I have been plagued by spam comments on my blog which were taking ages to delete and reject so I am afraid I have had to turn on the horrid word verification thingy for a while, I know its a pain so hopefully I will try and take it off again sometime.

Have a good week - it is very cold here in Devon but its so much better than all the rain

Best wishes

Hi again

Hello again
Just to say Hello
We have just got a new computer and I am trying to get used to it, it has got Windows 8 which is really strange
The Blogger thing has changed slightly since I last used it as well so bear with me. I was hoping I could rotate the photos here but by the look of it I should have done it before I chose them !
Anyway back at the end of November, we moved house. Still in 'The Village' but a bigger house with a garage to store all my 'stuff' in. We were without the internet for several weeks for some reason as BT weren't able to set us up until the previous owner's contract with another provider finished for some reason. Luckily I could still look at things on my phone - phew
We are still gradually emptying boxes and sorting stuff out, I did clear out a lot before the move but there is more. I am sorting through my rather large collection of fabric and knitting patterns and more vintagy bits will be selling some Have a look at my Ebay here

The snowy picture is of the view last week from my kitchen window. The snow only lasted one day and long gone now. Its not very sunny but its dry so far today and my washing is flapping in the wind !
Well there I did it, am back to blogging. Sorry about the photos, hope they don't make you cross eyed all upside down - I will get there
Have a great day
Love from Sue x

Where was I ?

Hello again
Sorry about my mysterious textless post the other day -
I had just written a post with lots of lovely photos about the 'Thank you Teacher' lavender bags I have been making - I clicked on Preview and the whole lot dissapeared :(
I am having trouble with this new blogger thing and wish it hadnt changed
Anyway here are some pictures of just a few of them I have for sales over on my Ebay (see link on my sidebar or search seller Stirfry148) or please do message me.
