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

Morning has broken, blackbird has spoken..........

 Well Hello at last
Where have the last few weeks gone (again) I thought it was a couple of weeks since I posted but it looks like almost a month!

We had a weekend in Liverpool with some friends who live there which was very nice. Got a good deal at a Premier Inn , did a ferry across the Mersey etc

Then it was Easter weekend - didn't feel very Eastery this year as it was so late and all the daffodils and even the tulips were long gone and the weather was more like July ! Anyway very nice.
Then of course it was the wedding weekend - I watched every bit from 8am and loved it all.
Mr V went off for a walk on Dartmoor to escape
 Anyway back to the subject, our neighbours had already told us there was a blackbirds nest in the honeysuckle bush on our dividing fence but yesterday morning I was woken up very early to tiny cheeping sounds. Then all day the Daddy blackbird was back and foward with worms and things so I think the eggs must have hatched. You ought to have heard all the noise ! You can see him on the decking in the top photo.

 While I had the camera out I thought I would show you a few photos of my kitchen windowsill !
(If any of my 'normal' friends are reading - look away now or you think I am mad !)
This windowsill started as a bit of a little display area for bits as I havn't got a dresser and when Miss V was little it was the only place she couldn't reach. It has carried on from there and changes week by week depending on what I find

A lovely alium flower from my garden, I have lots of these, they look so nice against the green of the garden plants but also looks good in the old blue bottle I think. It was in the lounge but Mr V kept saying it had a strange smell so it been banished to my space !
My herb pots I had for my birthday - doing well so far but the pots dont have drainage holes so not sure if they will be very long term

Well its good to back, I have been reading everyone's posts but now I have gor round to writing one thank goodness.

I have lots of cross stitch and tapestry kits on my Ebay here if you are interested including a lovely Ehrman one

Back soon
