Name Change and clear up of my blog

I have been away from blogging for a while undecided weather to continue or not but i have decided that i wish to carry on sharing my frugal tips and vintage finds.

 To be honest i was a bit spooked when a researcher from the BBC one show contacted me and said he loved my blog and was after three bloggers to appear on the one show giving tips , 
The thing is there were some things on my blog that i really did not want to be more public than there were already and deleted my blog while i had a think.
 So i am back with a new name and have deleted all my blog posts except the one about my old kitchen which i am still gutted to have left as its  the only photos i have of it.
  I am planning to take new photos of  my home as it is now
To start off here are some photos of my vintage finds over the last few months.

Four Oil on Board Paintings from the 1960s 








A set of roses jugs




Silver Cameo  




Patchwork Quilt.



Art Deco Tea Pot.





And i painted these frames.

  7. Glad you're back, I love seeing your finds and the way you use things in your home. We tread a fine line between letting people (who are, let's face it, largely unknown to us) into our lives, and keeping things private. It's human nature to talk about ourselves, but just how much should we reveal? Especially when the world and his wife could be reading.

  12. So glad you are back! I love your vintage finds. The art deco tea pot is one of the most wonderful things I've seen lately. If I wasn't decluttering, this would inspire me to be on the hunt.

  15. Lovely that you are back. I wondered where you were. I think it would have spooked me too. There is a fine line not to cross when blogging whilst still keeping your privacy and integrity. It is not easy when the natural inclination is to share but hey ho all's well that ends well. Some lovely finds as usual. Look forward to your future posts. Pattypan x

  16. smashing to have you back. I was very concerned when you didn't appear for so long. Needless to say life is its usual chaotic self here. Lent my house to friends for a summer break. They had always been wary about us standoffish southerners and our extortionate house prices. They arrived for our music festival, had a ball and the rest of the week followed suit. They said they had never met such warm friendly helpful people and the prices were very reasonable. We all end the week feeling very happy and they have already booked for the same week 'chez nous'. And to think we started out as face book friends. cant wait to see them again.x
