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

This week I have mostly been buying .......

 Another crochet necklace from girlybunches I love these and this is my third one. Specially ordered colours to go with my new top
 Some pretty floral gift tags and needle case from Gill at the Vintage Gardener
 Some more parcel wrapping tape from Dots and Spots I cant go back to using brown tape now I'm hooked on this !
 A crochet pattern booklet now listed on my Ebay along with more unusual crochet patterns and lots of Nintendo DS games I am selling to raise some money for Miss V to spend when she goes on a trip to London soon
 Todays charity shop finds - A white tunic thing made from a sheet to put away for school dressing up days Christmas plays etc. I made one when Miss V needed an angel costume years ago and she has just outgrown it. So a very useful find for 50p

A pair of unused blackout curtain linings. We take these when we go to caravans as the curtains are always so thin. No - I am not so sad as to fit them properly, we just sort of pin them up with clothes pegs

A brand new duvet cover from Debenhams with £35 price label on the packet. I paid £1.50
Miss V may like it or it will be destined for Ebay

And last but certainly not least - I won the giveaway from Mary Poppins
Sorry the picture is sideways again ! A lovely Rosie Flo fashion show play set and one of her pretty hearts
Thank you Mary

Well I had better go and do some bits, Miss V has her school disco tonight and I am helping with the PTA
(must be mad, as if I dont see enough of them all at lunch times!!)

Enjoy the sunshine
