The recent stretch of sunny days has brought the blossom and Spring flowers out in a fine display.
You only have to glance at all the beautiful blossom boughs and it is easy to see why the acclaimed Victorian artist Catherine Klein was inspired to paint such exquisite images of flora and fauna and blossom was one of her favourites.
It is lovely to see the bees at work.
The delicate, white-flowerering Springtime plant above is called The Bride - which is a very appropriate lead into our latest giveaway! Gail Abbott, author of many home and lifestyle books has presented Vintage Home with a signed copy of her book 'The Newlyweds' Guide to Setting Up Home' a wonderful book full of home-making ideas using a clever mix of vintage and contemporary styles.
Everyone who makes a purchase from the Vintage Home website during the month of May will be entered into our free prize draw for a chance to win this book. It would make a great wedding gift for a special couple - but if you're already married and have an established home, it is a great source of inspiration, providing fresh ideas if you fancy a change of decor!
We have added some beautiful stock to the website including a selection of pretty vintage eiderdowns...
...and quilts, something for everyone's style and taste!
We'll be back again soon with more news; here's to the Merry, Merry Month of May!
