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

Giveaway parcel received !!

Hello again, well the week is over half over already !
Wednesday is mid week bottle of wine and posher tea night after Miss V gone to bed. Mr V and I always look foward to this as it breaks the week up and its suprising how often he maybe has something on at work he wasn't looking foward to or something falls on a Wednesday and we say - thank goodness its wine night !
Anyway on to the news - On Monday I was a good girl and thought it was about time I hoovered upstairs - for some reason I hadn't got around to doing it all the summer holidays . When I came back down there was a flippin red card from the postman saying I need to collect a parcel.
Good about a parcel but blimmin typical that I didn't hear the door bell while doing a boring thing !
So yesterday I collected it on my way to my legs b-ms and tums class (also not managed to do all summer hols) , inside was a lovely pile of pink presents !
It was the giveaway I was lucky enough to win from Lalabibaby
Look at it all, what a lovely collection ! It cost so much to post as well what with the really heavy book- thank you so much, I am really pleased.
My favourite thing if I had to pick one is the old magazine from 1954
I love old magazines they are so funny with their advice and articles- look at the agony aunt !
Bless her ey ! you had better take her advice or there would be trouble
also a great article about how to go out looking well presented and well groomed - quite right too ey ha ha !
So thanks again Debbie

Talking of giveaways - one I spotted today that looks good is over at Sidmouth Poppy
dont enter though so I have more chance of winning _ only joking !

Well I better get some things done- I think the washing machine is broken :(  not worth having it repaired again as its had a hard life of 8 good years and all through Miss V being a baby and two house moves

Is anyone watching that School Lottery programme ? We feel so lucky as we only have one secondary school in 'the village' and luckily its very good so Miss V will automatically go there with all her local friends.
Hopefully it will still be good when that time comes. I really feel for people who have big decisions to make.

I have loads of 'vintagy' things to list on ebay soon so I will give you all a sneak preview soon

See ya and hope you enjoy your Wednesday evening - cheers !
