We have had such a busy time lately but thought it was about time we updated you with the latest from Vintage Home. Our fruit trees have been laden with apples and pears this year (so much in fact, that one of the boughs snapped!) so we have been enjoying delicious homemade puddings and cakes (sorry, no photos, everything has been eaten!!) Also at this time of year, I enjoy picking raspberries every morning (which I add to those delicious Alpro yogurts for a healthy and tasty breakfast!) Again, no photos - but we are treating you to pictures of some of the latest vintage finds to grace the website. There is a wonderful selection and plenty more to come!
The stunning rose painting above is one of the most beautiful we have seen and this dainty lady's writing bureau is quite exquisite, with its handpainted roses, flourishes and crackle finish.
It even has its original key...
Inside is a veritable treat with sweet little drawers, pigeon holes for paper and a secret compartment for hiding romantic letters...
This stunning Catherine Klein print is one of the loveliest we have seen to date...
...and this is a very fine painting of a handsome horse.
Paintings are a favourite of ours and this beautiful Victorian oil on canvas of a basket of pansies is another super find.
In the flavour of the season, this richly coloured quilt is a real stunner; authentic, immaculate vintage at its best!
We hope you enjoy your visit to the shop and in the meantime we will continue to add more and more of our vintage goodies!
We will be back soon with the latest, including news of where Vintage Home is being showcased for Christmas gift ideas, details of our forthcoming Christmas cottage feature and a super Free Prize Draw!
