Its all about trying out a little Vintage and my naughty little cat….

It’s been a whole week since I last blogged,where does the time go? It was half term here so I was busy with my family going for days out and just spending quality time with my children.I did not manage to get any real sewing done which was a shame as I am now very far behind on my craft fair stock,but I still have a month to go so I should be able to catch up !!
Back in March this year I closed my Folksy shop and opened a Etsy shop for my handmade items,to run along side my other ventures and so far it has been well received,and last week I decided to add some Vintage bits and bobs to the shop.I have been a lover of Vintage for a very long time now and over the years my husband and I have collected quite a few bits.We don’t collect things to be put on display,we like to use them as they should be and we don’t spend a lot of money on them or buy something just because its old if we don’t like the look of it or won’t be able to use it.So I have been having a clear out and have added a few things to the shop to sell on to someone else to treasure/use.I find it funny that vintage is anything over 20 years old and as my son points out to me that ,that makes me antique!!!! Cheeky boy that he is,so I told him that,that means in 3 years time he will be Vintage 🙂 I have already sold this Max Factor hand book from the 1950s,to a lady in America…

and today I have listed a Winnie The Pooh cook book which we as a family have used a lot over the time we have had it… plus a jug and some really cool looking magazine books from the 1950s,I just love the covers…

My cat has also been inspiring me this week so I am making several of these cat brooches out of some left over black linen I have.My daughter has had one for a while now and she gets asked where she got it from so I thought I better make a few more.Talking of my cat,I love him dearly,but at the moment he keeps catching birds and bringing them in to show me and I just hate it.I know its natural but its horrid and I dread the sound of the cat flap going just in case he has a mouthful of something !!!! Do your cats bring you gifts ? We have had mice and more it makes me shudder at the thought of it.
