Hello Again!!

Away from my blog for a while, but at long last having some time to myself and time to write my blog.

It has definitely been a great year, I started a new venture Rosiebud Decorative Vintage in April and I think I have learnt such a lot in this short time and have found my niche in style and what really interests me.  I love old linens and faded fabrics along with domestic china and enamelware as well as pretty mirrors, books, and really anything that catches my eye, white china jugs, old pictures, mirrors, lovely original distressed painted furniture, and I am really looking forward to sourcing lots of new stock for my fairs in the coming year.  I have also met some lovely people, Liz & Jack, Lucy & Laura and their lovely Mum & Dad, Darcey, Debbie, Jacquie, the two Michelles, Caroline, Fenella, Ali and so many other stallholders and customers. Great admiration for the ladies who run the fairs and fellow bloggers it has been great to meet you all. 

I have put together some photos to depict the year.
The beginning of the year a trip to London (one of the hottest and in March) I loved Rachel Ashwell's shop in Notting Hill
and lunch at Julie's
My first stall at South Molton in Devon
and then a glimpse of Summer
a beautiful hot day at Avington
A trip to France to this lovely B & B in Biarritz
with some great finds, but I wish we had taken the car! there is only so much you can fly home with by Ryanair!!!
Two more pics of my stall at Cuckfield and then in the Cotswolds, what a difference to the first photo!!
Pretty china and a lovely statue which I have to confess to keeping, looks great in the herb garden.
and finally the end of the year with Christmas
Things to look forward to in the new year, I shall be making some new things
Beautiful photos to Inspire
Looking forward to Spring
and a visit to France
and some city spots!! looks like Paris to me.
Well all that is left to wish everyone a very Happy New Year, and see you soon
