This is post 200...however did I get here? I started this blog last year as I was convinced that I needed an 'online presence' to help my etsy shop. Well, my etsy shop is down, big time.
But I found that I really enjoy blogging.
What's more I love reading other blogs.......and what a variety ( well perhaps there is a common thread )
I have found I love seeing what other people find in charity, thrift or op shops, or at garage and boot fairs
I follow other vintage textile dealers, study their displays intently and pinch their ideas
The Vintage Bothy is one
and The Washerwoman
I love a blog that gives me a sense of time and place.....where ever in the world
like Curlew Country in England
and Linda in Australia
and MaryAnne not far from me in Ontario.
Some blogs are very informative and I have learnt so much from
and Italian Needlework.
and Advanced Style
Not to mention the vintage dressers, period costumers, embroiderers, quilters, dressmakers, collectors and other intriguing bloggers I read on a regular basis. You know who you are!
Perhaps I will get around to writing about you all for my 300th blog.
