A Vast Array of Vintage Treasures!


Where does the time go? I can't believe we have a Bank Holiday weekend coming up! I can imagine those of you with children are already thinking of the new school term that will soon be upon us.

August hasn't been the scorcher it usually is, but at least everything in the garden is still looking fresh and green and we haven't had to endure too many sleepless nights due to the heat! We've had such a busy time here at Vintage Home; in particular we have been producing several more commissions with a Union Jack theme!

Mike's 'Man-Made' label is doing well and he has even found time to make a few extra cushions for the website; aren't they super?!

We have updated the website today with lots of super vintage treasures - there are far too many to mention but here is a little taster for you...

This piece of old fabric is quite stunning...

Does this young girl remind you of anyone..?

...and of course it simply wouldn't be Vintage Home if we didn't have a good smattering of roses! Here is a gorgeous big pitcher...

...a beautiful oil painting which is 102 years old...

...and one of several religious prints.

As well as finding lots of vintage treasures, we've also been adding some extra vintage charm to some of them, including a comfy seat pad for this stool...

...and a pretty new covering for this chair seat.

We're hoping to spend the Bank Holiday weekend in the garden if the weather permits, as well as visiting family and friends. Hope you all have a wonderful week and weekend!

  3. Beautiful, beautiful things. I do love the pictures from the story book... they take me right back to my childhood. I was reading through my Little Golden Book of A Child's Garden of Verses illustrated by Eloise Wilkin just yesterday. It is a treasure I am thankful to still have in my possession. Thanks for sharing these beauties with us.

    Blessings,

  13. Lovely things! The union jack cushions are great. I made one (in more pastel colours by Kidston) and it took forever but I was really pleased with the results.
