Our Vintage Playroom

An age ago, Sarah wrote a blog post featuting styling ideas for displaying your wall art. Since then I have been meaning to revisit my kids playroom to create a wall for their many creations. They are very lucky to have a playroom (I so wish it was my office) and it was featured in […] Read more…

Designed by Jools Oliver for Mothercare, this children’s vintage range reminds me of the 1970s – the decade when I was a young child (showing my age huh?). The A/W range is bright and fun, filled […] Read more…

Last weekend we all went away, to Peppa Pig Land. Those of you who don’t have young children will have no idea of what I am talking about; Peppa is a small cartoon pig that little ones love and who has her own world, near Southampton.

Our Vintage Life

Wow, what a fortnight it has been. The biggest news is we went to the National Vintage Awards…and we won!!!! This really wasn’t expected as was clear in my terrible acceptance speech. I hadn’t planned what I wanted to say at all, and was a bit of a blithering wreck really! Thankfully by the morning I […] Read more…

Herbie goes bananas!

Firstly, let me recap. We bought a huge renovation project back in February, in a lovely village called Cranfield. It took an age to find the right house as our demanding list exasperated all the estate agents. We wanted: Somewhere we could renovate not wanting to spend a premium for someone elses work (and as […] Read more…

Play Away!

Hot on the heels of our first room to be finished in our renovation project (as written about in our blog: Fabulous Fifi) we have this week completed our second room!
