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

A day on the beach and a horsey cushion

Hi All,
Is the weekend over already?  We had quite a busy one but very nice. Not a cloud in the sky again !
On Friday I made a cushion with horses on for  friend of Miss V's who had a birthday sleepover party.
So, having a child free evening,  Mr V and myself wandered down to our local Indian restaurant. It is the only proper restaurant apart from pubs in the 'village' and very nice it is too.
It is our wedding anniversary tomorrow, 9 years but Mr V has had to go away on a work course all week boo hoo :(  typical as he very rarely goes away. Never mind ey
On Saturday we didnt do much, just sat around in the garden and pottering around.
Yesterday we woke up to find one of our pet chickens had died in the night, we had sort of been expecting it as she hadn't been right all week. Still rather sad though. She has been with us just over a year though and had a great life in our garden I hope as she was an ex-battery rescue hen. Still have three more though.

Then we went off to the beach at Seaton in Cornwall , we used to go to this beach all the time when I was a child. We met up with my Mum, both my sisters and my brother in law to be and my 2 nieces.
We took Mr V's kayak and had a great time, we didn't stay all day as we wanted to see the football. ( Dont usually watch it, but it was England !) anyway, wish we had stayed at the beach  !!!  then we had roast beef a bottle of red wine mmm a nice ending to the weekend.

As you may have noticed, I have set up a Vintage from the Village Facebook. I better just check the link works. Please feel free to be 'my friend' if you are in to all that

Right then, it must be time for a coffee and I want to order one or two bits from the Cath Kidston sale. I have had my eye on the boat bath mat for a while and its now reduced !

Have a good week

Sue xx


  1. Hi Sue,
    What a busy weekend you have had! Sorry about your chicken, its always very sad when we lose a pet. Sounds like she led a good life in your garden though.
    As for the CK sale -I want to be there. I love her stuff!
    Your cushion is fabulous by the way.
    Take care, Pam

  2. Hi, fab cushion- clever you!
    sorry to hear about the chicken, always sad when they go but at least she had a nice life with you.

  3. Oh, poor chicken :(
    I had spotted the same bath mat on the CK sale and am quite tempted too!

  4. Ah, some of my favourite things, cushions and horses! Lovely! Very sad about your chicken, it's so sad when go, they're such characters. Hope you get some lovely CK bargains!

  5. Hi Sue!
    Barkcloth is quite tricky to describe! Other than it has a grainy, bark like texture! I think it's from the 50's/60's, and you often find it used for curtains. Hope that helps!! I f not I'll have to send you a sample!
