Loving the vintage vibe!

Here's where I'll share my obsession with vintage fabric! It's taking over my house!

I'll sharing with you my favorite fabrics, my 'adventures" in dressmaking using vintage patterns, some home furnishing ideas and no doubt I'll be telling you about any exciting finds! Love to hear about your vintage adventures too!

My first Shop was AudreysCat ( online shop May 2010) , but my new logo / name - WittyDawn , arrived Jan 2014.

I hope you'll have time to browse my shops too !

Out with the 'Old' in with the New 'Old' ( by which in mean new vintage fabric goodies..)

It's that time of year again! Bye Bye 2012... HELLO 2013 !

So I've new ideas to explore  - a idea about flowers, new owl ,cat , rabbit and frog designs to play with and develop, new bunting ideas, more patchwork cushions and possibly artwork - all with my vintage fabrics. I'm also going to relaunch my website to be the hub for my custom orders and a place to showcase all my vintage fabric.

This means I have to clear a little out of my existing shops - so have a look in my sale sections - at the moment there are about 50 items on sale!

Items like these cushions covers for only £10 on Etsy Etsy Sale Section

And even a few mice like this one in Folksy ( plus LOADS of other things ) Folksy Sale
There's a big variety to choose from : bags, mice, cats, birds, aprons, bunting, purses, brooches, cushions, and some Christmas items too :)

Hope to see you there !

The Car Boot Vintage 70s Wallpaper is UP!

We found this wall paper a couple of year ago for £1 and finallty got around to putting it up! we have quite a few vintage bits of furniture now about the house favouring 70s solid wood and a fair bit of G Plan. This is a feature wall in our rather large L shaped family room/dining/kitchen area, the accent colours throughout being orange, aqua and turquoise.

We recently replaced our Dining room suite with a  G plan one , reupholstered by myself in a favorite Francis Price barkcloth. The large horse textile hanging is on the opposite wall to the wallpaper one. PLEASE NOTE my house is not normally this tidy !
