A warm welcome to all again,
sorry its been so long but we ( Aisha my mother and myself) have been swamped with many new ventures and moving home.
You may notice that the blog looks a little different !
Well that’s because I will be taking a back seat as regards to the blog as I have little spare time now and will be handing the site over to my mum Aisha who is behind the Vintage Galore side of things which you may or may not know is our new furniture up -cycled venture. ( However I will drop in from time to time for a chat.)
This part of the business is taking off in leaps and bounds and involves us re purposing old and vintage furniture.
We have been doing this for friends and family for many years and have now after many requests included this in our business .
We source furniture and other household items and re love them to sell at our Vintage fairs and at various venues and antique markets ,We also offer furniture painting commissions.This allow us to dramatically change the appearance of any old piece of furniture you may have with a fresh coat of paint. Furniture painting, repairs, and faux finishes . We will be posting the venues we will be selling the furniture in advance for those who wish to attend and view our handy work.
So in all many changes taking place hope you like them…. please keep following .
Hello Kittens!!! I have been absolutely swamped lately, my work load has increased massively and business is going really well with lots of new and exciting projects coming up and already under way.

I have a little more free time from now on to attempt to post more regularly so fingers crossed as I do so enjoy blogging to you guys!

Top of the morning to you all!!
I had some lovely news this week that we will be moving to a new home!! A lovely pied a terre , with two bedrooms and a big big garden!!!
So, before I have even contemplated packing, I have of course already started planning the interiors. Priorities darlings!
I haven’t shared these before, but here are some pics of the apartment I am in now. Its in Windsor in Berkshire, England. Its a little one bed.
As you can see, my apartment now is VERY pretty and girly with a serious nod to vintage/shabby chic. I want to be a little bolder in the new place.
Here are some of my design inspirations so far, for the new place.
So I’m looking to get a feel of Dorothy Draper, 165 Eaton Place (BBC Adaptation) and Hollywood Regency Glamour. I am also contemplating whether or not I can get away with a navy blue hallway?? Thoughts please x
Oh and here is pic of myself, my son and my niece at the classic car show in Berkshire yesterday. And yes, I am sporting a new Betty Page fringe. Dress is 50s Vintage St. Micheals xx
Just to mention that a few of the pics taken of my current home are by the lovely Kelly Green at Lola Rose, you can click to her site via the ad at the top, left of the page.
Love love, Sadie xx
Want to share these divine images from a vintage wedding I styled a few weeks ago.
The day was fabulous and the bride was so beautiful!
As you can see, the theme was very pretty British Vintage and thanks to Kelly Green at Lola Rose Photography. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how wonderful she is. The images speak for themselves!!!
Well, well, we’ve come along way baby….
Do you remember when I was just a girl buying junk at boot fairs and cleaning it up to sell on ebay?
Well finally I am fulfilling one of my dreams and with my business partner and vintage guru Berni Bales, I am please to announce the 2011 dates for our authentic vintage fairs!
It’s been my desire for some time to produce high quality vintage fairs, with no distractions like crafters, and to put on these events at beautiful and historic venues, and we have done just that securing the Guildhall in Royal Windsor for two dates, and the Town Hall in Henley for one.
The fairs will play host to an exclusive selection of some of the best UK vintage sellers currently working the UK vintage scene, with over 20 stalls at each event all selling unique, beautiful and high quality vintage fashion, home wear and textiles.
We will also be host to the Vintage Beauty Parlor, a fab little salon offering vintage and period hair and makeovers plus much more!
I am more than happy to thank all my lovely blog friends for supporting me over the last few years by offering you all free entry to any of the three dates! And hope you will try to come to the fairs! Just email me for comp tickets .
Dates are as follows!
The Guildhall, Windsor, 9th of April, 11am – 4pm
Henley Town Hall, Henley on Thames, 18th of June, 11am – 4pm
The Guildhall, Windsor, 1st of October, 11am -4pm

Just a quick post to tell you that I have just completed the website for my client The Retro Lady.
