I seem to be short on time and sleep at the moment.  ET is has a hundred teeth coming through and is being so clingy that he is starting to feel like an extra limb!

Anyway, apologises again for the time lapse between posts and as promised here are some pics from the Love Vintage and Retro Craft Fair that I had a stall at on the 17th of June in Surrey.

I had the best pitch in the house!!! A double stall right in front of the entrance, so I doubled up as the welcoming committee too!

I went for a sort of vintage Cath Kidston inspired look for the merchandising complete with my home made bunting. What do you think? Does it look OK?

It was my first foray into selling at fairs, and although it was a quiet day, partly due to it being the first event for Love Vintage and Retro, I did pretty well and went home with a lighter load than when I arrived. It was hard to part with most of the items, as it is when I sell online, but hey, that’s the name of the game right?

On top of that, this week I have had to help my sister move and redecorate an entire house, help another relative move new furniture into their house, my Mother is moving back from Egypt permanently (YEAY!) and I have had a very exciting invitation to collaborate with one of my most favourite people from blog land on an exciting new project! It’s all a bit of a secret at the moment but I promise I will reveal all in due course so keep checking back. It really is very very exciting and will blow your socks off!

In the mean time, Love to you all,

I love to read, and I love books.  Books take us to far away continents, romances with dark strangers, reveal the secrets of distant movie stars and open our minds to another perspective.

I can’t bear to see books unloved and their pages forgotten.

Old books are my favourite. The smell. The faded pages. The finger marks left by an ancient reader who may be long gone from this world yet the memory of them reading the story still remains.

I found some lovely old books in my local charity shop yesterday, three of a set of 1960s Observation, illustrated books, two 1950s girls annuals and a chunky illustrated copy of Arabian nights that is most likey from the 50s.

I wanted to share some of the wonderful illustrations that are in the 50s girls annuals. They are simply divine!

Delightful aren’t they?  I love the positive, healthy images of all the girls and women. It makes me want to cry when I think of the highly sexualized, thin images that our teen girls look at in today’s annuals/magazines.

I guess I’m just not for these times….

Love to you all, Sadie xxx

Hi guys! It feels like about a MONTH since I last posted.  I have been crazy busy ! A weeks holiday in Wales, styling a show flat for a developer, organising E.T’s 1st birthday party and of course, hunting for new stock for the shop.

Here are a few pics to get you excited, some pics I took of the family in Wales and one of E.T looking gourgeous on the beach!

My sister and my niece, I think they look like they are taking a stroll through heaven.

I’m just putting the finishing touches to a little project I have been waiting to Launch on you! Very excited! Check back in a few days and all will be revealed!

Big sunny hugs from Sadie xx
