- Vintage from the Village
- Ivybridge, Devon, United Kingdom
- 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

Gone dotty !
Where did half term go ? I could do with another week off on my own to get straight but never mind, we had a good week
Where did we go?
well we went to stay with some friends in Staffordshire and had a lovely afternoon in Stoke on Trent at the Emma Bridgewater factory
The men went off to some aeroplane museum !
We didn't have time for a factory tour but plenty of time for the girls to do some pottery painting and large slices of cake and coffee all served on dotty china in the lovely cafe area whre there was this fantastic cooker, I wish it was mine but sadly no....
I have to look foward to a jug in the classic spot pattern
For mum in laws Birhday I bought a jug and plate in the pink heart pattern and as I spent a certain amount (not mentioned in case Mr V is reading!) there was a free mug thrown in !!
I fancied the oilcoth table covering but it was £25 per metre and as I would need two metres probably I thought I had better not !
What a lovely day, we are looking foward to the parcel arriving with Miss V's plate and cup and saucer
Have a good week
