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

Away with the fairies

Hello again, where did that week go ? seemed to fly by even quicker, I suppose because Miss V had a non pupil day on Monday Anyway on my last post I said about I was going to a Jamie at Home party
it was quite good, there were a lot of expensive things there but some more which wern't too bad at all.
I ordered some great little storage jars, you know the glass ones with ceramic lids and a sort of clip to keep the lid on, I will show you when they arrive.
I have at last been doing some more sewing, I have a fair booked next Friday. It seemed ages away when I booked it but they creep up fast.
I have some great new fabric with initials and flower fairies on- so far I have made some gift bags. Backed with floral fabric and gingham ribbon handles.
Some more initial fabric made up into lavender bags. I did rotate the photo but its still sideways for some reason !

Some assorted mini gift bags with ribbon ties, some are in Christmas fabrics and ribbons
some with Thank you Teacher ribbon and some just pretty.
I have also made some cushions but they are not quite finished.
Just ordered some paper carrier bags on Ebay in case I sell some and I need to wrap them somehow.

When the fair is over I will be listing some of my makes on my Ebay and I may even open a blog shop !
I have so many things to list on Ebay I must get cracking soon
I must go soon as dinner ladying all this week - not very tempting in this drizzle
This morning I bought a Christmas magazine
and in the charity shop - guess what .......................... a Radley purse !! £1.50 

Off to see some fireworks tonight
Have a great weekend  and welcome to my new followers

Love Sue x


  1. Gosh, Sue, there's so much to love in this post. The gift bags and the lavender bags are gorgeous - and the purse - what a brilliant bargain. Enjoy the fireworks.

  2. I know just the jars you mean from Jamie at Home as that is what I bought when I went to one - just about the cheapest thing there, I think!
    Enjoy the fireworks.

  3. Love all your makes, Sue. I don't suppose you have a Zinnia Flower Fairy bag do you?

  4. You have been busy and good luck at the markets. Do you worry that you might not have enough to sell? I Know I do and I am always making extras just in case :)

  6. Great work, some beauties.
    I know just the jars you mean. I've seen them on a few blogs, they're so pretty. I love that style of jar, they're very helpful.
