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 result at last - sorry for the delay !

Hi again, first of all I apologise for the dreadfull quality of these photos. I promised Miss V that she could arrange the winner of my Vintage Magazine giveaway and we ended up doing it about 9pm last night when I was trying to get her off to bed. The camera was upstairs so I made do with my phone and it doesn't have a flash.
Anyway this is Sponge bob squarepants (you may know the TV character?!) he is a china money box Miss V painted recently so having written all the names on slips of paper she posted them in to the slot on his head.
Then we removed the rubber bung and a name fell out- it was ..............................

So I will be wrapping the mags up and posting as soon as possible (Gill please let me know your address)
( I always feel bad that everyone cant win dont you?) Thanks to all who entered anyway.

Now you are in a frenzy of giveaway excitement some other news is - I am the winner of a giveaway ! more news on that when the package arrives !

Another great giveaway I have entered is over  at  Ted and Bunny

Well Miss V went back to school yesterday- so far so good apart from the shoes. I have always bought her Clarks shoes for school , cheaper than it used to be as she spent the summer in Crocs (£1 copy ones) and flip flops
this time she insisted she wanted shoes without straps on so she got a pair in Peacocks which she thought were perfect anyway day two of school arrives to complaints of they are rubbing and one of them is too small - flase economy there then :(
I feel a trek to Clarks coming on tomorrow and £35 worse off = £40 for the £5 wasted

On a brighter note- we are going to a Christening on Sunday, I hope the good weather keeps up as the dress I am planning to wear is rather summery !

Have a great weekend

  1. Congrats to Gill on being the winner.
    Enjoy the Christening on Sunday, the weather's sposed to be fab!

  2. Have to say I always go for Clarks for school - expensive but they seem to last forever (well, till they grow out of them, anyway!!). Have a great weekend - enjoy the Christening x

  3. I love the way Miss V used the spongebob squarepants money box! Good idea!

  4. Hi Sue, thanks for the lovely welcome back. I did enjoy my break after being so busy just before, but I do miss reading about everyone elses escapades. Its a long time since I had to worry about the price of Clarks shoes (my 'baby' is 40 next year), I buy them myself now at the Springfield outlet shop near Spalding. I think I probably pay less than you do for your little one. Something wrong there I think!

  5. Hi! thanks for following my blog, i will do the same for yours! whereabouts are you? I think my location comes up as Ivybridge but i'm actually in Lee Mill. You might also be interested in the blog of the shop i work at in Totnes, This'n'That, there's a link from my blog, in particular, we're putting on a nostalgic themed fair next month, i'm sure it would be your kind of thing! best wishes, Lidi x
