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

I hate 'books'

Hi All
Hope you all had a good weekend. Fantastic weather today here in Devon.
I was called to school for MTA lunch time duty and it was almost a pleasure standing in the playground.
This will be a bit of a muddled post as I am behind with posting and I keep thinking of things to tell you....
First a belated thank you to Beki of The Ramblings of an everyday mummy for my parcel of goodies from the Shabby Chic swap
What lovelies indeed - A crochet doily (now on my dressing table) 3 vintage range hand creams
a china trinket box, a pile of very shabby chic pretty napkins, a rosy writing paper set and my favourite thing of all is a wooden hanging bird (now on my lounge door handle)

Thank you so much

Its just taken about ten minutes to upload those two photos for some reason ?

Also I ordered a couple of felt goodies from Gill at The Vintage Gardener, sorry I forgot to take a photo before  stashed them away for Christmas
I am very pleased with them and I loved the hen bookmark and post tag as well.

Anyway back to the post header about books - of course I dont hate proper books
but today I have started 'doing my books' and filling in my accounts book.
Ever since Ebay told me I had to upgrade to a business seller I thought I had better register as self employed. All a bit scary and I wonder what I have let myself in for ? !
It took ages as I sell lots of little items. I suppose I will get used to it and today I feel as though I am drowning a bit and wonder if it is worth it?
I love it though so I am trying not to worry about it and millions of people have to do it

Last week i did some sewing for a change and made some little halloween goody bags, I will put them in my Misi shop soon or if you are interested they are £1.50 each (free postage to UK)
Just the right size for some sweets for your favourite trick or treaters ??!!

Well thats about all for now- off to make some Horlicks !

Take care
Sue xx


  1. Hi Sue, bear with the'books' and keep on going, it's not as bad as you think really. It is a pain when you want to use your time for 'nice' things I know, I feel the same. Love the little bags.
