a crocheted blanket is hanging up on a white chair next to a wall
So much love for vintage granny square blankets. They are a great stash busting craft project. Anything goes with colour choices!
One of my favourite vintage items - a Bakelite hairdryer in its original packaging with full instruction paperwork. Isn't it amazing? Can imagine someone prepping their 1960s bouffant on a Saturday night with this retro beauty. Packaging, Vintage Items, Bakelite, 1960s, Hairdryer

Another beautiful piece of vintage fabric has landed in my Etsy shop. The mustard yellow tones really stand out on the chocolate brown background. In fantastic condition, the colours really pop. This is a large piece, so plenty of fabric to play with!

two coffee cups and saucers on a white table
One of my latest finds -a vintage Women's Institute cup and saucer - patriotic aren't they? I love the 'For Home and Country' motto on the side. Where does the motto come from? Laura Rose was the first Women's Institute organiser, she worked to promote the WI for 35 years. Her suggestion 'For Home and Country' was adopted as the WI motto in 1902. This badge was modified to become the first badge of the WIs in Britain.
the house plant expert book is sitting on a wooden table next to a potted plant
Bargain of the day - I bought this vintage houseplant book for 90 pence in a local jumble sale. I turned straight to the succulent page. So much useful information in this handy little book.
