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 !

A 'Circle of Life' kind of summer

We have  lost someone very dear to us and I have a few friends who have had similar losses -  my sympathies go out to them.

This morning I woke up and thought about some happier news too - in my immediate circle I know of one recent birth and there are another 4 babies due to arrive soon (which including a pair a twins).

And so the world turns and turns and we just have to hang on to it...

... and to quote a phrase myself and this much missed person used a lot over the last year or so  "IT IS WHAT IT IS"...

You might like to read this Poem ( read out at a recent uplifting Commemoratove Service) :

Afterglow - Unknown

I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun
of happy memories
that I leave when life is done.
