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've got big piles !

No, not that sort thank goodness ...
Piles of Ebay ready to list, piles already listed but waiting to sell, piles of ironing, piles of pants and socks to sort out and put away, piles of things as we are going away for a few days and need to pack, piles of unread magazines  etc etc !
The time seems to be going so fast lately. Cant believe its almost half term already.
I have been working at the school every lunchtime for a few weeks now as well so its all go
Anyway drip over, down to some nice stuff

I have been lucky enough to win a giveaway from Josie-Mary
I have having trouble adding the picture for some reason so I will try to remember to try in a minute
What a lovely package of goodies- a fab crochet brooch - which is now on my body warmer
a lovely box in the shape of a button
some sweet bird magnets- which went straight on to the fridge
a lovely smelling lavender bag
some lovely hand wipes for my bag
and some tissues in a pretty packet

Thank you so much Joe

I also had an email saying I had won a competion I entered in Vintage Life Magazine
so I will tell you about that when it arrives
I am obviously on a roll so I better get a lottery ticket !

During my Ebaying this week I posted a vintage crochet pattern to someone who I have since discovered has a great blog and Folksy shop full of funky crochet items so I have a new follower - thank you
have a look here girly bunches

Well I better do a bit of tidying up as it will be time to collect Miss V in a bit
Hopefully catching up with The Apprentice tonight and delayed Wednesday night wine.
We were sat in the freezing cold in the dark waiting for Miss V to come back from  brownies trip at 9.15 last night- good practice for us for when she is a teenager ey !

Lots more news and charity shop finds but it will have to keep until next week as we are of on a little holiday- cant wait
Still wont let me put photos on for some reason so will show you another day

Have a great weekend
Sue x


  1. Hi Sue!

    Thanks so much for the link!.. so nice to have meet you! Always good to know a friendly dealer in crochet patterns! ;0)

    Have a lovely weekend too my dear!x

  2. My house has bad piles too!
    I laughed at your comment about teenagers - it is no fun having to forego a weekend glass of wine because you have to pick them up from the cinema or a friends!

  3. Hi!
    Just LOVE reading your post! We seem to lead similar lives, except I am in the South East! We also were waiting out in the cold for a small daughter to finish all the fun of the Centenerary celebrations!

    Have a great half term!
