Vintage Village Treasures

I have just had a most enjoyable morning at Stockports Vintage Village (it is award winning don't ya know). My mother gave me some spending money so I could get myself something nice for my birthday. So much more satisfying than next vouchers ;)
My first stop, obviously, was Jodi-Jo Retro
A fox was at the forefront of my mind after missing out at last months fair, I have thought of little else.

Here he is at last.

And then I just had to be buy this cushion. It is patchwork and I just love it.

To own any of these fabrics......

 Talking of fabrics...I couldn't resist these, also from Jodi-Jo.
New cushions?
I was really lucky to have found these tea towels too. I was tipped off by Mrs Teawgon, they were stashed under a stall???

Aren't they amazing. Can't see me ever using them. but just knowing they are mine is enough.

Lastly, and my biggest investment, was this.

Arabia Finland jug

This picture does not do it justice.
It is so nice, and I have had my eye on it for months but never had the finances.
It is a lovely big size, 6" tall. It will take pride of place in the middle of my kitchen table and I am going to fill it with daffodils.
The lovely Snygg Style gave me a special birthday discount.

Now I am home I am enjoying my favourite cake and a cup of tea.

Stuart Thornley Bakewell Tart Cupcake....GONE!!
Thanks for reading. x

Btw, not my birthday today, it is actually on Wednesday. I am to be forty...ssshhh.

  2. Great finds. I love the fox and the apple tea towel in particular.
    Enjoy your last few days of being thritysomething. I was welcomed to the forty club last year. It's not that bad, honestly!

  3. Oh Stockport Vintage fair is lovely even though I've only been once - need to go again as it's not too expensive on the train from here. Lush purchases too (and it's my 40th at the end of this year) - maybe I shall go for mine?!

  4. Wonderful purchases and the little cupcake looks de-lish!

    Many happy returns for Wednesday!

  5. what a great start to your special the fox! have a very happy birthdayx

  6. Happy Birthday for Wednesday! Looks like you got some bargains, all gorgeous stuff. BTW, my Mum has had that Arabia jug for over 25 years - she bought it from the charity shop for pennies, not knowing it's true value. She has used it as a gravy jug ever since and still does, even though I keep telling her how much it's worth!! xxx

  7. Love those tea towels!!
    Happy birthday x

  8. Gorgeous buys.Hope you have a fab day on your 40th!

  14. I was thinking whilst sewing my felt Raccoon badge, he needs some'body'...then I thought of you. He would be a good chum to Fox and Badger I thought.
    There's always room for a Raccoon don't you think?
    Then I thought it would be rude not to share this I'm sharing. Have a naughty forty birthday!
