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 !

Car Trouble??

I’ve been thinking about Cars…..

Primarily because we have a had a recent MOT bill ( boooo….).

Now I hate driving …I mean REALLY hate it.

I only started driving again recently after a break of about 20 years, lost my nerve after a couple of accidents ( and no I wasn’t driving at the time). A patient driving instructor has got me on the road again with a refresher course. Now I know I can actually drive ok, but still don’t want to ….and after years of not doing it find it had to build it into my life!

However I do like stylish cars and loved being driven in the Citreon DS we used to have. Our best moment was when after a heavy rain storm a section of road was flooded – we just set the hydraulic suspension on it’s highest setting causing the car to rise up higher than normal and just coasted thu’ causing some amazement – my niece wanted to know if it could fly too!

So anyway thought I’d do a car’y blog featuring some Folksy sellers and maybe give some ideas for more bloke’y Xmas pressie. Enjoy…..

  1. Neat stuff to look at! That sounds like it would have been a cool car to have--and a hard car to say goodbye to!

  2. Wow, thanks Dawn for featuring my VW camper cushion! My dad used to have a Citroen DS :) I love that VW Bugs photo, might have to have a better look at that.
    Thanks again, Zoe x
    PS. A couple of the links don't work ;)

  3. Thanks Zoe - That 'links don't work thing' keeps happening and i can't see why, very frustrating, I'll have another look....
