Time for change - maybe not!!!

After spending the whole day trying to get a new web address for my blog I have decided that it cannot be done easily - without losing all of my followers!!!
I have therefore decided to keep my blog as My Grannies Attic to enable you all to follow me on my journey with Vintage Simplicity - I can't lose you all after all can I.
You can follow me as VSChinaHire on Twitter -
And my website for Vintage Simplicity will be up and running very soon.
I am off now for a nice big glass of wine - I think I deserve it.
Have a good weekend.

Can you see me??

Since I changed my name to Vintage Simplicity this morning I do not think any one can see me. Please post a comment if you can.

All change........

Well the end of the summer holidays has come and gone and we are now fully back into the swing of the early morning school run's. It has taken me until today to finally get back to some kind of normality - where I can gather my thoughts and plan my next course of action.

Summer was well and truly taken up with holidays, day trips and keeping four little poppets entertained. It was at times very testing - especially on the rainy days but I had the most thoroughly enjoyable time!!!

Times are changing around here though!!! I have decided to add a new blog or two so that I can keep My Grannies Attic purely for telling you all about my families goings on and the vintage twist I bring into our home.

My new blogs will focus on my new business - Vintage Simplicity - Vintage China and Accessories Hire. One will diarise the development of the company and the other will be in the form of a blog shop where I will be selling lovely hampers of china and cake stands.

Please hang on in there whilst these get up and running. My branding and logo design should be with me by the middle of next week so please look out for that.

I am also in the midst of meetings - setting up my new website for Vintage Simplicity. It is all happening so quickly now - I have all of my stock sitting ready and waiting for the 2011 wedding season and lots of wedding fairs planned.

Anyway, onto some finds that I gathered over the summer. These are all for keeps and will be proudly displayed in our home (all of my china finds will be shown in my Vintage Simplicity Blog - watch this space........).
This telephone was picked up at an Antiques Fair for just £5. Just the perfect colour for the kitchen - I love it!!!!
I just couldn't refuse this tin when I saw it. A 1950's recipe tin - which I thought was empty until I opened it.......
It is absolutely amazing!!! So much time must have been spent writing out all of these recipe cards and all the recipes are right up my street - all old fashioned yummy foods!!!
Another one of my much loved London Route Master Signs had to come home with me!!! And as we only live just down the road how could I refuse!!!!
I love the look of this Thermos and had seen one just like it in one of my favourite interiors books. All I need now are the flowers!!!!!
That's it for my summer finds - not many but all so so perfect.

Bye For Now
