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

Alice at Antony House

Hello again
The sun is shining today , the central heating is on - just for an hour ey !!
On Sunday we went on a little trip to Antony House at Torpoint find link here
They filmed some of the garden scenes from the new Alice in Wonderland film here
We havn't seen the film yet but thought we would go there first

We went on the car ferry to Torpoint then it is only a few minutes drive to the house.

There are some things to look at and some people dressed up as characters acting out scenes for the children to join in with
We had a cream tea in the sun

Mr V was rolling his eyes when I was taking the photo saying  ' why would anyone be interested in seeing a photo of a tea pot'  !!
I think he was thinking that at that price we should have been allowed to keep the tea pot !!
Then Miss V spotted a friend from school so we chatted to her parents  while the girls played

Then, a  friend texted and said would we like to pop round for a glass of wine in her garden on the way home - what a nice day !
Tomorrow we are off to a caravan at Shaldon near Teignmouth for the weekend, we go every year with my Mum, sister , her fiancee and Miss V's two cousins. I hope the weather is good as the site is by the sea (well the estuary near the sea) and  you can eat outside , so fingers crossed.
Have a good weekend, all back to normal next week

PS . Is anyone watching that new antiques programme (forgotten the name sorry) - I loved her shabby chic dining room.

  7. Hi Sue - just found your blog. I live in a village close to Newton Abbot so not very far away at all. Enjoyed reading about your jumble sale finds. I love posting about all the bargains I pick up in charity shops and at boot sales, and of course reading about everybody else's as well. Now I've found you, I'll be back again to visit! Caroline x
