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 !

My latest 'House' project

I've been looking for a G Plan table and chairs for a while and was finally rewarded at my local Sue Ryder shop - of which I am a very good customer! So we are now the proud owner of a 'new' dining room set.  To confirm to fire regs the chairs have to be sold minus upholstery so my job this week is renovating and recovering 6 seats. I've made a start ... and I'll post the final results shortly. The fabric is a vintage upholstery weight fabric from the 1960s called  'Pathos' by Francis Price. ( however I also still have 4 other seats and my other dining room table ....opps....)

Back in Autumn 2009 a friend and I with a mutual interest in vintage fabric and sewing started a little venture called 'Audrey's Cat'.At that time I produced the Audrey's Cat avatar and logo that some of you will know. As I recall the name was my friend's idea - a link to the cat in Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Due to changes in her life she was involved less and less in the business from about June 2010, finally formally leaving in about Sept 2010 and we agreed that I would continue on using the name - and my designs, and build upon the web precess I'd begun to grow from May 2010. This is my design on which my avatar and business logos are based

Yesterday ( Fri 4th May)  my OH finds another Audrey's Cat online- ( I know there is another one do do with ACTUAL cats...) however this one is linked to vintage jewellery and is based in Dubai with vintage jewellery parties, her face book page dates from March this year  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=326260044100246&set=a.326260037433580.73698.326259857433598&type=1&theater . My friend has a relative in Dubai who is a keen collecter of vintage jewellery.... and oh! how similar her business card logo is to my cat in my Audrey's Art shop ....how lovely....  you may draw your own conclusions....

This is her business card shown on her face book page.... kinda a 'lazy' way to start a business....
