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

Strip teas !

Hi again, well, what I have I been up to this week?  One project was using these narrow strips of fabric I bought when I went to the quilting show in Exeter recently. I made a nice big mug of tea ( now I have these nice big Cath mugs I hate using normal sized ones )
and set about fraying all the edges - I will show you what I did with them next week - thats the tease bit ( thought I better not use proper spelling in the header in case family protection blocks anyone reading it !!)
I have been selling lots of clothes etc on ebay so have made a tiny dent in the ever increasing piles.
I have also opened an Etsy shop as not had much luck on Misi. I havn't listed anything yet but hope to do so next week so I will keep you up to date with that
I went to a car boot sale last Sunday and bought this fab crochet blanket, gave it a nice wash and its listed on ebay if anyone is interested.
I also bought some other things but the photos are on my phone and I have left it downstairs so I will upload them next week.
There is a car boot sale at our local donkey sanctuary on Sunday where my Mum and Sister will be selling , so hope the weather is ok as I am looking foward to that and its not far to go.
Well I better go as there is sewing stuff all over the dining table which I have to put away, then cooking a nice tea and bottle of wine - aah that Friday feeling
See ya and have a great long weekend
Sue xx (oh no, it's raining !)


  1. Your Chinese takeaway comment did make me laugh. Shortly after I took the pic, I had to chase them off, because I spotted a mangy looking fox just 20 ft away and closing fast! So maybe that's where your ducks went...
    I can't wait to see what you are doing with your frayed strips. As for the blanket, it's gorgeous - you should do really well with it. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. The blanket looks great - are you sure you can part with it?
    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Can't wait to see what you do with your strip(s). Love the CK mugs, I have the spotty green ones. Have a good weekend.

  4. Love the crocheted blanket, will take a peek on ebay.After seeing the pretty Primark cardi in your last post I picked one up myself, it's lovely though a little on the small side. Thanks for sharing your finds. Have a lovely weekend , hopefully the rain will stop.

  5. Hi Sue - I've recently bought some of the big Cath mugs, and like you never want to use any other mug now! Great crochet blanket, am going to go and have a nose through your eBay listings now! Let's hope the weather is ok for boot sales tomorrow, it's raining as I type this ... Enjoy the rest of the weekend - Caroline x
