A Faithful Friend

I'm a very sad lady today as it appears that my trusty and faithful friend; my laptop...has died....

I'm going to see if someone can fix it ....so fingers crossed.

If you have sent me an email through my blog or my website I'm sorry, but it might take me a while to get it and reply. The Wonderful Dutchman is on the case....

A Lucky Winner's Cake Topper

Do you remember my 200th post? well I gave away the chance to win a cake topper to the lucky winner....
Here it is...
Louise wanted a touch of football chic added to her topper as she was getting married at a football ground!! I'm guessing this was the grooms dream venue!
I think the black and white theme works well.....and those smokey crystals are too cute.
Good Luck with your wonderfully special day Louise xxx

The London Vintage Wedding Fair...

Well after a long day in London yesterday, I finally feel back to normal!!

The fair was wonderful, intimate, fun and ohhh so VERY vintage! This little magpie fitted in very well.

There where a bus load of stunningly gorgeous brides-to-be there, all bedazzled with the whole world of vintage they had just walked into. I think many a lady went home with their dream dress and there were smiles all round.

My Vintage Magpie's stand was sparkling in the fab spring sunshine... ladies surrounding the stand, attracted by the twinkling crystal.

My Vintage Map luggage labels where a huge success...many going to be used for Name cards, Grooms gift tags and save the date cards... but....

....The show stopper of the day was my Cafe Latte Fascinator.....

Lovingly adored and tried on by most girls there...one lucky lady got to go home with it and a few were most disappointed...but I'm working on that!!

My lovely Ma helped me out...she was a God send...it wouldn't have been possible or anywhere near as much fun without her help and love...even in the mad traffic of London town!!....so Thank you Ma!!! xxx

Thank you all for coming, saying 'Hi' and giving me some lovely, positive and muchly appreciated feedback...I love to hear that you read this little tale of my work and life, and that it keeps you interested enough to keep coming back for more Vintage Magpie love....xxx

An Anniversary Surprise

The wonderful Dutchman and I celebrated our anniversary last week... he surprised me with a meal out. These have few and far between as we save for our wedding....

We popped to our favorite part of Brighton and had a wonderful Japanese meal. Oh I can still taste it those prawns... divine!!

They give you a origami animal to create while you wait... The Wonderful Dutchman has a super hopping frog!

Coffee and a peppermint tea.....hmmm..... a perfect evening with the most perfect man.
Thank you for my surprise!!!

On the Work Bench...The Result

I love those soft flower bursts...so dreamy.....

I admit this wasn't the vision I had in my head...but I am so happy with how it has turned out!
Silhouettes are a favourite of mine, so it makes me smile to be able to incorporate them into my work...

This Vintage Magpie is happy...and from the look of the Bride and Groom they are happy with their flowery topper!! ;)
