Now that the short days are upon us our little cottage is the perfect place to be, with a warm and cosy array of vintage quilts and throws to snuggle under in front of the fire.
This is one of my favourite spots, with timeworn patchwork throws and quilts which aren't too precious to be used every day.
As the evening approaches, this corner of the cottage is the perfect place to settle down with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
All this cosying up besides crackling log fires is setting the scene for that very special time of the year when we all like to indulge ourselves...
So, there is no denying that magical, mystical time is fast approaching and here at Vintage Home, we are making early preparations for Christmas. The website has kept us extremely busy this year and we have had great fun seeking out all the many, many vintage wonders which have now found new and loving homes. We will be updating the website with a beautiful selection of tantalising treasures over the next few days and as a very special thank you for your valued custom throughout 2009, we will be giving away a delectable Harrods Hamper to one lucky person!
There are lots of tasty treats included in the gift hamper which is appropriately entitled 'A Christmas Carol'.
Details of how to enter can be found on the website's News Page and in our eNewsletter which goes out to everyone on our mailing list. We are only sorry we cannot give each and every one of you a hamper, but there will be two runner-up prizes PLUS special treats sent out with every order placed between now and Christmas!
Also, we have a new addition to our range of mouse mats; another 'exclusive to Vintage Home' design featuring a selection of vintage fabrics in the form of the Union Jack.
Be sure to get your orders in well before Christmas, as we know how much you love our mouse mats and we wouldn't want to disappoint you by running out of them! They make ideal stocking fillers and don't forget we still have our rosebud and polka dot mouse mat available too! (Due to recent demand, our Victorian roses mouse mat is currently sold out; sorry!)
We're thrilled to announce that the monthly magazine for the antiques trade 'antiquexplorer' has awarded us the title of Website of The Month for November! The antiquexplorer is a classy glossy magazine which is distributed throughout the West Country here in the UK but they also have a website which echoes the quality of their printed publication - pop along for a browse when you have time...
So, there is plenty to warm the cockles of your heart here at Vintage Home - including the gorgeous new stock we will be adding to the website over the next few days; here's a taster!
A scrummy, cuddly, rosy French quilt to snuggle under.
An exquisite and immaculate huge double eiderdown.

Create a rosy glow for Christmas with this divine yellow roses on red rug.

Christmas is a time for entertaining friends and family and the time when unexpected guests drop by bearing gifts and glad tidings...
This trio of tables is perfect for serving nibbles and drinks and can be tidied away for an attractive display when not in use.
Yes, Christmas celebrations start early at Vintage Home - we do hope you can join us!
