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 Stylish Swedish Holiday Home !

So we have recently returned from a super holiday in Sweden - we have a bunch of holiday photos to edit and recommendations of things to do but that will follow shortly....

We stayed in the beautiful ( and I suspect rather upmarket?) Nacka area, lovely houses set in heavily wooded settings with great gardens. Unlike here in the UK people seem to not put up fences/ walls etc so there was a shared view aspect to their gardens which was appealing and made the most of the great location. There was a supermarket a short drive away and bus stop nearby too ( walking distance) . However we travelled by ferry into Stockholm and out to the islands from the local ferry point a very short drive away.

Well what super holiday home we had !! - lots of Ikea ( naturally...) and lovely  colours! very stylish :). The grey and white scheme with coral touched was particularly beautiful in the first floor living area but all the rooms were beautifully styled. This was a family home and so I won't share pictures of bedrooms/ bathrooms but they were all to this standard, and very clean and tidy. Obviously I rather coveted the vintage sideboard ...

The co-ordinated theme extend to the garden with knowledgable planting relying on structural forms with a green/grey/purple pallette.There was a lovely large decking area to the rear where we had breakfast and a balcony across the front of the house.
This was perhaps the most stylish holiday home we have stayed in and we thank our hosts for a delightful stay ! You can check it out here Holiday Home in Nacka - we'd recommend it !
