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 vintage giveaway !

Hello again
I think its been over a week since my last post, where is the time going lately ?
Anyway before I went on holiday to the lovely
Isle of Wight

I promised that if I had 50 followers by the time I came back I would do a little giveaway
well I am delighted to say - ta da - I have 54 !!
Thank you all so much
The giveaway is not one but two Vintage life Nostalgia Magazines

I cant remember how I came across this magazine now but I had a look at their website
and have since ordered 2 magazines and I have enjoyed them very much so I thought I would pass them on to somebody.
Just leave a comment before Sunday 29th August if you would like a chance to win them and Miss V will pick a winner on bank holiday Monday

Talking of Miss V- Mr V has been a star and taken her off to the cinema to see Toy Story 3 so I have a couple of free hours to do some Ebaying.
The knitting and crochet patterns have been going well- thank you if any of you have bought them.
I have just had an email from Ebay saying I have to upgrade my account to a Business Account,
has anyone else been through this and got any tips?

Well I better get on then and make some money to pay for the ridiculous price cinema tickets !
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I hope its better weather wherever you may be

Clickety click !

Just another quick post while Miss V is downstairs with some friends playing on Moshi Monsters on the lap top while I have sneaked off !
I am a good Mummy really and taking her to the theatre this afternoon to see Hairspray so that should be good. I havn't even ever seen the film.
Anyway just to let you know after my holiday break I am gradually getting back into Ebaying (to pay for the holiday ha ha!)
I have started listing a lot of knitting patterns that I have broken down from a ring bider part work magazine thing.
There are lots of unusual funky items there like hats,bags,bunting,cushions  and things,
I havn't finished the pile yet so keep looking here

Have a look if you are interested
Have a great day

I am back !

Hello again !
I am back from a superb holiday to the Isle of Wight, we didn't know when we booked it but it was actually Cowes Week which was an added bonus.
I am going to have to fill you in with short posts as I am still trying to get straight and its a busy week with lots of things on the calendar and its Miss V's birthday on Saturday and her party at home (oh No -what have I done) on Sunday. I thought I was going to have ten minutes of peace now but questions keep being shouted up the stairs. Roll on September ey !!
So anyway I am reading blogs whenever I get the chance and will write asap.
I also have my giveaway to arrange that I said about as zippedy do da - I have 51 followers !
(if I can find the magazine that is- hope its not under the ironing pile he he )
Have a good week, raining here
Sue xx
