The Flag is Always Flying at Vintage Home!


A fresh vintage Union Jack has recently replaced our old flag which was rather tattered and torn after many years of sun, wind and rain!

Well, what a wonderful holiday break we've had! We enjoyed some glorious sunny days and time away with family for a very special Birthday celebration, and an enjoyable spell beside the sea. There's been the odd spot of retail therapy - and a good deal of vintage retail therapy too! The garden has been lavished with attention...



...and we've crammed in some serious quality-time. A day spent with the lovely Kelly and Paul of Vintage Lifestyle was most enjoyable; wonderful food (thank you both so much!) great company and beautiful weather in delightful 'vintage surroundings' - what could be better?!
We were overwhelmed with the response to our holiday offer on the website and consequently will be working extra-specially hard to have your orders packed and posted throughout this week.
So now, it is 'back to work' for the both of us! I can honestly say we are feeling so very refreshed from our break that we cannot wait to get back into the stride of things! We've some extra-special vintage treasures to add to the website later this week, but first I'd like to share some photos with you all...
We haven't ventured here for a while,

so perhaps it's time to head down the garden path...

...getting closer...

...closer still...

It's tempting to sit awhile and enjoy the beautiful flowers instead of getting back to work!

Somebody has found a shady spot.

Perhaps we shouldn't have woken him up!

The roses have been exceptional this year...

...such beauty and heady perfumes...

...it's just as well we'll have no time to sit amongst the roses - they've taken over the bench!

A really big 'Thank You' to everyone for your recent purchases - we'll be back soon with more photos of our vintage home and garden - and more vintage goodies!
