When I Think Of...

My sweet God-Daughter Stella Winter and her cute little face...

It reminds me of the inspiration her little presence in the world gave me for the last range of That Vintage - the graceful deers walking with their little wren friends, the sweet doves that have such strong wings and the delicate intricate patterns of lace and wrought iron - a dreamy garden that I would love to walk Stella around in one day.

Picked By The People - Part Two.

So many cute treasuries on Etsy at the moment; a lot of them containing little woodland critters! Just another two of the many featuring That Vintage at the moment - click on the images above for a better look!

Christmas At That Vintage HQ.

This year saw the very first exclusive That Vintage Christmas Shopping Evening happen last week, on an unsettled (weather) Friday evening - tasty delights and thirst quenches were on offer and of course, the one-on-one shopping experience ...and boy, did my sweet That Vintage lovers shop up one heck of a storm!
At first, I wasn't too fussed about whether or not people bought anything - I was happy to treat my closest friends and admirers to an evening of Christmas cheer.
The living area of my home was chock-a-block with people - seats were snapped up quickly and the conversation volume shot up!
Such a buzz.
Many people have requested this to be an annual event - oh my goodness, how I would love it to be!

Picked By The People.

Two of a few sweet treasury lists currently on Etsy featuring a piece of That Vintage - people are so clever with their selections and curating! Be sure to check them out by clicking on the above images.

Sold But Not Forgotten.

This last couple of months have been a good kind of madness.
I have been running the two online shops, doing huge market events (which I am still reeling from) along with wholesale orders (in huge demand prior to Christmas - bigger than any other year before) and working my "bread & butter" job - it was a bit of a struggle to keep on top of stock levels, making, designing, general admin and relisting of items online.
I often found myself wishing I had a little "Inbox Fairy" to help me out - but I survived, fairy or no fairy!

Here are a few of the most popular pieces sold from the last few months:


It has er, been a fair few days since I last blogged. Oh dear.
But you know what. It's not because I haven't had anything worth blogging about, I actually have a very very very good reason.
I have been busy.
You know that thing? Where you find it hard to cram so much into your already action packed days? You know how it is, juggling work life, social life, hobby life, love life, life life... I should just join a circus, because I survived my juggling act!

This year has been incredible.

I have experienced so much with That Vintage this year - and now I really am feeling the love from my following of lovers!
Thanks to each and every single one of you for loving and adoring That Vintage - see you in 2011, for some amazing new adventures!

Merry Christmas!
