Glad Tidings for Christmas and New Year!

Mike and I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year, may you enjoy happy times with family and friends over the festive season and we hope all your dreams come true in the year ahead.

We are looking forward to 2010 with excitement and wonderment, and if all goes to plan, we will be embarking upon a fabulous new adventure - we can't say too much in case we tempt fate, but watch this space, as they say... In the meantime, our cottage has been chosen for a Christmas photo shoot, to be featured in one of the glossy magazines next year. As you can imagine, it has been all hands to the deck as we festooned our cosy home with traditional and vintage decorations. The tree is positively groaning under the weight of baubles and the presents are piled high underneath. Decorating the cottage for Christmas is always an enjoyable experience; stacking logs in the inglenook, dressing our Victorian bed with warm and cosy quilts and hanging garlands from the beams - such delightful, festive chores. The photo shoot will capture all of the little touches that make Christmas a magical time here at Pottery Cottage, and it will mark this special occasion in a rather poignant and fitting way as we head into the New Year with our hopes and dreams for 2010.

We have had a wonderful year at Vintage Home and would like to thank everyone for their support and custom. We receive so many lovely messages and are often overwhelmed at the kindness of people who take the time and trouble to send us their lovely thoughts and generous wishes.

In the spirit of the season, we will be taking the Vintage Home website into the New Year with a host of very special vintage treasures, something for everyone to browse through over the holidays, so pop in for a look whenever some respite from the Christmas TV or turkey sandwiches is called for!

We hope you have enjoyed our festive photos, we'll be back soon with more pictures, news and lots of fabulous, floral frivolousness!
