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 !

Another Retro Mouse Giveaway!

Just a few days ago I passed a milestone - a total of 3000 followers on Twitter! so it seemed like a good idea to celebrate with a little gift!

I'm giving away one of my Retro Mice - it'll be one of these green/pink/black/white fellows made in Vintage Bark Cloth. He can also be found on my Website http://www.audreyscatvintage.co.uk/


To enter you must promote one of my items or one of my shops - as my website is fairly new it would be especially nice to get some extra views on there!

To be entered you MUST tell me ON THIS BLOG what you promoted and where - it can be on any social media such as twitter, facebook, pinterest, stumbleupon, flickr, google+, blogging.

You can see all my shop links on the right hand side of this blog.

The Competition will close 9pm Friday 22nd.

I will select a winner at random on Sat 23rd and announce it on my blog/twitter/facebook (one of my kids will pick a name out of a hat!)

Thanks ! Love Dawn

EDIT: THE WINNER WAS..... Clare Sherwin ! ( drawn out from a hat by my youngest Mon 25th June 8.30 am - sorry I was a bit late on doing the draw/announcement!)


  1. Congratulations on reaching 3000 followers. I've just pinned one of lovely bags http://pinterest.com/pin/278871401896581517/
