~A Beautiful Vintage Year in Review~

my first foray into patchwork

discovery of a shop that sells Cath Kidston, only to be heartbroken that they would no longer stock her items


what else, baking Pasta al Forno for warmth and carbs


Martha and I were busy creating

thrifting at its best

the season of the peony

lobelia in the back garden

rippling away the hours

planning my dream potting bench

vintage fabric browsing with my girlfriend

kitchen planning

learning to crochet hangers and placing them in Christmas stockings

A special thank you to all my readers especially those that take the time to leave a comment and say a few words. Wishing you all the very best for the new year for you and your loved ones.

Love your year review - have you got an easy way of getting lots of photos in the right place in a single blog - mine wont go where I want them and sometimes disappear altogether !!

Oh, I really enjoyed your vintage year post. Truly! Loved the blue bowl that you served your pasta in. I have a pink one like it! Well, not exact same design, but you know, the same bowl. :-) Well, time to start a new Beautiful Vintage Year! Have fun!
