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

Could anyone help with a translation please ?

Just a quick one, I bought two pillowcases recently with what I presume is Chinese or possibly Arabic embroidered writing on them

Could anyone help with translation please? presumably something like Goodnight?
They are very pretty and brand new

If anyone could help that would be great

Off now to watch Restaurant Inspector with a glass of wine and a slice of orange cake I made earlier (more about that another time)

  1. Hi Sue - Mr EM who is familiar with several oriental languages suggests this may be Indian/ sanskrit though he can't read it. Anyway certainly not Chinese/Japanese or other such eastern characters.

  2. Orange cake, that sounds delicous xxx

  3. Oooh, what a mystery - I really want to know what it says now!

  4. Hi Sue!
    Just to let you know that I have just received the crochet magazines I won on Ebay from your shop. I just adore them!! I will be leaving a superpositive feedback for you there. :)

  5. I think one says 'not tonight darling' and the other says 'your luck's in'! :0)

  6. Found your sweet blog today and wanted to say hi! not sure about the pillowcase writing but I love the flowers on them :) have you any orange cake left I wonder ;) sounds wonderful!

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  7. Hi, sorry, I tried to leave a comment a while ago. I'm hoping things are working now!
    Lovely to have embroidered pillowcases.

  8. Think it might be Sanskrit? Definitely not Chinese or Japanese (they have the same characters, the are just said differently) I really want to know what it says! x
