Easter Vacation

my easter holiday and shop opening

hello dear readers!

just a very quick blog today to let you know that i'm having a little holiday so my online shop will be closed now until after easter.

i'm looking forward to having some 'time out' to spend with my family.

i also plan to do some DIY and sewing in the easter holiday to spruce up our little home. 

i don't need to tell you dear reader, that life can get a little hectic and without realising it you can get caught up with everyday nonsense such as household bills, chores and appointments.

life has been very busy for me lately what with having mr lurgy outstaying his welcome and doing his best to tire me out, and making lots of stock for the recent vintage vision stall that i did a couple of weeks ago.

so i'm really looking forward to taking a break and just relaxing, taking photos with my trusty camera, sketching, eating out and generally making time to stop and smell the roses!

i hope you have planned a lovely relaxing easter for yourself and loved ones.  all too often we forget to enjoy the simple pleasures in life such as family, friends and the beautiful weather we have had recently.

i think that things always look a little better with the sun shining on them - don't you?

footnote:-  you might like to know that after easter i will be opening my little shop on etsy which will be full of collagegypsy goodies!!

Happy Easter!!

A Wonderful day at Vintage Vision Fayre!

A Great Day!

hello dear readers!

i hope you have had a good week and are planning something nice with your family and friends this weekend.

i thought i would show you a few photos that i took at the Vintage Vision Fayre that was held last sunday.

My Collage-Gypsy Ltd Stall

as you know i did a stall there along with lots of other stall holders all selling vintage clothes, homewares, gifts and lots more.

Some lovely outfits on the catwalk
as well as lots of shopping there was a catwalk and lindy-hop dancing.

Lindy-hoppers with great moves & outfits!
it was a really lovely day - i met lots of new people, the fayre had over a 1000 visitors so i was kept busy all day which i like because you get a great buzz from chatting to people who are interested in similar things. 

i had a couple of wholesale enquiries and a lovely lady who had seen my work in Coco Love bought 2 of my original collages.  she absolutely loved them and it's great to know that my work is going to a customer that will appreciate it.

One of my original one of a kind collages that i sold
i sold lots of my cushions so after easter i will have to get busy on my sewing machine to replenish my stock!

i've had some new followers on twitter and facebook since the fayre which is lovely and i myself have discovered new people that i am now following.

you might like to check out my twitter and facebook and see who i am interested in and if you like what you see why don't you 'like' me!!

Vintage Vision Fayre

Come & join me at Vintage Vision!

hello dear readers.  sorry i haven't blogged lately - mr lurgy has been visiting and is definitely lingering longer than he ought to.

i thought you might like to know that this sunday on the 11th march i will be at the Vintage Vision Fayre in Abergavenny.

this will be the third stall i have done with them and it's always a great day!

they have catwalk shows featuring vintage clothes from all eras, cream teas served on vintage china and lots of stalls selling gorgeous clothes and homewares all from the past.

i will be doing a stall featuring my vintage-inspired homewares and gifts, jewellery and cards, as well as my china and collages that feature original postcards and photos.

most of my items are handmade by myself or are my own design using lovely fabrics and images and i'm sure you will find lovely mother's day gifts and easter presents from one of the lovely stalls at this event.

i will have a selection of easter, mother's day and birthday gifts to suit all pockets so come along and join in the fun!!
