The Latest Additions to the Vintage Home On-Line Shop!

What a wet and miserable start we've had to September - I had heard rumours of an Indian Summer, so let's hope this is just a glitch! There's nothing like being all warm and cosy indoors when the rain is lashing against the windows - and that's exactly where we've been this week, as we prepared for our latest website update! Yesterday saw the latest additions to the shop and once again, we've managed to find a wealth of gorgeous treasures for you! The beautiful Klein rose above is one of eight different floral Victorian chromo picture mounts - they are a really special find! As well as the pink roses, there are daisies...


...and lily of the valley - you will find another four of these beauties in the shop; violets, wallflowers, forget-me-nots and cyclamen - each one bearing Catherine's signature!

We've also added this beautiful French carnations tin...

...and this superb rare and very old Venetian-style tin - such a beauty!
There's a wonderful array of prints and original paintings - here is a rare find, an original watercolour by Helen Seddon, the colours are so pretty...

...and this lovely oil painting is a reminder of sunnier days!

This sweet Edwardian pen box is a particular favourite, what a delightful thing to see every day as you sit at your desk!

Thank you to everyone for your recent custom - your kind words and love of vintage spurs us on to find ever more beautiful and rare vintage treasures for you all. In fact, here is a taster of a special find, soon to be added to the website.
This is a large, Edwardian chromo print entitled 'Bunch of Roses' and comes from the very talented hand of Walter Ernest Webster. Look out for this, and many, many more goodies in the next few weeks!
Have a great weekend wherever you are; whatever you're doing - and whatever the weather!

  7. Love the pen box, Clare. Is it still for sale? I just visited your site and have to tell you it is brilliant! There was a set of cottage canisters that I missed out on....big sad face on me! Your items are always very special and pretty.
