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

The alsation story!

Hi Everyone, where did that week go? I just realised I havn't done a post for a whole week, anyway here I am again.
Last weekend we went on a caravan break to Shaldon in South Devon (near Teignmouth)
On the way there we passed a sign saying 'garage sale' - my heart missed a beat and I shouted STOP! but it was on a main road and Mr V used the excuse that there was nowhere to pull in - oh no what was I missing?
 Anyway off we went to the caravans (we had two as my Mum ,as one of my sisters and her family were also there) It is a lovely small site and Miss V and her cousins have a great time as they can wander down to the play park on their own (yipee, gone are the days of sitting waiting for them to fall off things). We had great weather but it was really cold at night. The next day my other sister was driving up to join us for the day, first job was to ring her and ask her to bring extra duvets, hot water bottles and blankets !
The next morning- brother in-law to be offered to take those interested to the garage sale while Mr V stayed with the kids - yipee!
I bought, some teddy bear making books and fabric - to sell on ebay
a pearly necklace
an Aynsley china posy
and much to my sisters amusement an alsation dog ornament ! anyway I will hopefully have the last laugh as it turns out to be Sylvac and there is one the same on ebay for £79
Anybody want him? !
He caused much family amusement that weekend, as he was sat on the caravan fireplace looking just the part .

I hope you had a good weekend too, the next one is almost upon us already !
