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

A bit of eye candy (stripe)


Well its Monday and the sun is shining. It poured down all of yesterday - typical.
Never mind ey, I had an hour to myself on a rainy Sunday afternoon so I sat down with my knitting and a big mug of tea and watched Columbo - lovely

At last I have sorted out and listed on Ebay the lovely vintage candy stripe sheets
I mentioned to Mum in Law how well I had done selling some recently and she said she thought she had some stashed away
Next tme we saw her out comes a big bag full of them (my eyes lit up)

 Wide stripes
 Narrow stripes with frilly pillowcases
 Pink and grey stripes
 and pink and white stripes

Along with some odd pillowcases. They have been put away since Mr V was a child, so are truly vintage.
All now washed, line dried and ironed  mmm lovely
Have a look if you are interested

Also after my plea for help as to what this Laura Ashley design is called, I was informed it is Paper Doll  (which makes sense looking at it!)
So thats there as well
 Well All this lovely sunshine is showing up the dust and the kitchen floor looks bad so I better get on.
Happy Valentines day to you - I will be back to show you  that when I have taken some photos
