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

Aah home to a nice cup of tea !

Hello , is it Thursday already?  Bit of a funny week with it being the school holidays and Miss V home so not had much chance to write a post but I have been reading lots of them
The weather has certainly brightened up now and its great to hang the washing out and to see our chickens enjoying the sun instead of looking like drowned rats

Today Miss V and I went to Totnes , a town not too far from here. First we went to the scrap store. It was sad as it is closing down today, so naughty me goes along for the first time in about a year to see whats going cheap he he
I bought some bits of fabric and a few other bits but nothing very exciting, anyway its a shame it is closing.

Next we met up with a friend and her daughter and went to China Blue which is a china painting cafe sort of place with a lovely gift shop. After lunch and a natter the girls painted some china. I was trying to save some money so I didn't do one myself this time but |I do love it.

Then we drove home via the village of South Brent there is a jumble sale there on Saturday so we drove three times around all the narrow streets looking for the village hall so I can get there quickly on Sat and suss out the parking etc, found it in the end so I hope I can go after all that !
Home now to a nice cup of tea and to wash the fabric I bought - lovely day

Hope all is going well with everyone
Will be back again soon as I need some advice from you all !
Best wishes
