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

Thank you for my awards !

Hi Thank you so much to Dosie Rosie and Felt like stitchin who awarded me an award !
It was very kind of you and its my first.
Its taken me a while to work out what to do- I think I have to tell you ten things about myself
I will make a start then

I have only been blogging for a few months, I first discovered it by looking at a magazine advert
for the website for http://www.thisvintagelife.blogspot.com/ and I thought what is a blog? so I had a look at it just snowballed from there !

I married (the present - as Terry Wogan would say!) Mr V when I was 37 and had Miss V when I was 38

I worked at the same company for 22 years before being made redundant in January. I have been itching to do my own thing for a couple of years so it was a blessing really. Although a bit more redundany pay would have helped !!

I was taught to sew and knit and crochet by my Mum who used to sew all our dresses when we were young

I have two younger sisters , one daughter , 2 nieces , one sister in law so we are very girl dominated family (poor Mr V, even all the pets are female)

Sorry to say My Dad and Mr V's Dad both died of cancer

I love car boot sales and charity shops, I buy loads with the intention of selling it but never seem to have enough time to clear the piles before I buy more !

I would love a cottage in the country and a bigger house so I could have a sewing room !

I love eating and drinking outside in the garden (or anywhere) I would hate to live somewhere that didn't even have a balcony

We love our ex-battery hens, even though they do eat my plants !

Is that ten yet? I will probably think of loads more later

I will make a list of lovely blogs to pass the award on to when I get a minute. I really have to get my swaps sorted now.

Have a great weekend
