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

I'm back to blogging !

 Hi All
Long time no speak ey !
All fine here, we have been on another holiday to the lovely Isle of Wight. We went the day after school finished so it was a bit busy that week packing and things.
It was our third year in a row and loved it as much as ever.

A funny thing was though, we had a meal at the 'restaurant' on the site where the caravan was on the first night and we ordered a bottle of wine (of course!) and the bar had run out of glasses so they gave us plastic slush cups to drink the wine from !!

In the end we got some dirty glasses from an uncleared table and washed them in the basin in the ladies toilet - what a start to the holiday. We did have some lovely meals out after that though

Anyway now its back down to earth and the rest of the school holidays
I am trying to get things listed on Ebay and having a big stock clearout with some low start prices to clear the decks a bit
Some Vernon Ward pictures to start with
See here if you would like to

 Does anyone remember a doll called Flotti from the seventies?
I had one myself. She came with clothes printed on fabric to be cut out and glued together.
She bought back some memories - may even be mine ?

I have been doing some crochet as well, I will take some pictures to show you soon

Back soon hopefully and I will try and bring some brighter weather - very grey and damp here in Devon today

Sue x
