starting the new year with vintage

After an unexpectedly busy December, including family things, it’s time to re-group and get back to normal… which means one thing here: vintage!

Am at my favorite, veddy-veddy exclusive B&B for  lovers of vintage things – the private home of dear friends K & G.  My ‘suite’  includes the wolf room, bath, and library, as well as full use of the craft room right across the library.

Their house is better than a museum or antique shoppe, because there are so many collections of things I love ~ vintage patterns, fabrics, laces, buttons &  jewelry.  And I can touch everything – tee-heee!

G has his man cave, where he works his magic on antique metal trucks, so K & I are able to do our things guilt-free.  Here are a few highlights… click any photo to start the slideshow.

Happy 2013 to all!

  1. Was just remembering your blog post from your trip visiting your sewing buddy, and the lovely fabric you went home with. 🙂

    Will post mine soon. Most unfortunate you can’t get more affordable fabric there. How about online, where I get most things. Going to JoAnn’s today was a very rare treat. There isn’t one close to my home.


  2. You’re so sweet to write! Happy New Year to you & your lovely family. Yep, am having a ball here – always hate to leave this delightful couple.

    K says the rolling pins will be going up on one of her sites (eBay or Etsy) when she has time. She has over 150 of them, and can respond if anyone is looking for something specific. Will post her sites as soon as I confirm addresses…

    About to go hit the fabric shop saless – whoopee!

    Will update soon ~


  3. oh. my! love that rolling pin collection! Everything look so interesting and fun! I have a great bunch of vintage pattern too and am too chicken to try pattern grading 😉 hope the new year brings joy and happiness to you all! Hugs!
