We cannot even to begin to say how excited we are about our Floral pop up next month: Put the date in your diary: 11th and 12th April 2015 from 10-4pm each day.
We are not popping up alone, but have gathered together a dozen of our very favourite sellers who have been hoarding and collecting with us in mind, gathering up Sarah Moore Style Vintage for many months. We will also be sharing our own fabrics and wallpapers, available to buy by the square, meter or piece to suit your budget and your projects. Goose Home and Garden, The Old Haberdashery, Found and Love Lane Vintage are all coming along. And The Washerwoman and Sue Meager are making their way up from the West Country with bundles of brilliant vintage too. Antoinette O’Sullivan is bringing along some lovely curtains too.
We are opening up our big flint barn on the Hooksway on top of the South Downs between Petersfield and Chichester. And packing it to the rafters with a hoard of beautiful fabrics, wallpapers, gardenalia, original painted and vintage furniture. With Haberdashery and even some beautiful frock coats.
You can come along on Saturday to one of corsage courses and take away a goodie bag of mini makes fabrics, or just come and oak up the atmosphere and visit the old dairy attached to the barn for a freshly baked scone and lovely cup of tea.
If you would like to come along, pop you name onto our event page HERE and we will add you to the guest list or mail at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many scones to bake.
Its rustic and rural on the top of our hill, more potting shed than emporium, and if there are April showers it might be a little muddy, but we are in a National Park and just off the South Downs way and 300m from The Royal Oak. A pretty pink pub with really good pies, ploughman’s and straightforward pub lunches. Call Dave to book a table and say Sarah sent you. 01243 535 257.
Like many rural areas reception is patchy, so we cannot take payments by credit card. Please bring along a cheque book or cash as card machines don’t work on the hill top.
Spring days are finally here. The buds are bursting on the trees and their is blossom about to confetti the countryside and we have had an unexpected good early crop of peas!
Handmade and bursting with colours from forget me not blue to pale hyacinth pink.
We have been raising our standards in honour of St Georges Day. We haven’t found any vintage St Georges crosses yet, but can never resist a fluttering Union Jack!
And for all our changeable weather, we cant tell you how glad we are to be in England now that April is here for we have the loveliest of Lilacs.
We have had a flurry of brilliant birthdays and have found a huge number of very vintage cake plates that we will be listing on our site shortly to share with you all.
We would love to see as many friendly faces at the Decorative Living Fair at Eridge Park in Kent on 16th May. Book the date in your diary and bring your friends to share the launch of “Vintage Home” at our stall.
So: Been a little busy lately doing all sorts of exciting things after the launch of the book. Homemade Gifts Vintage Style. And setting up a website for Born In The Chapel. Lots of fun but terribly hectic. It seems that I now have carte blanche to be an official vintage addict as my part time hobby has taken over my life. Our dinnng room is OFFICIALY now my office. Wow betide anyone who thinks of eating in here.
Cant wait to see any images of projects that have been made from the book and hope that there are enough inspiring ideas to make a couple of Christmas presents.
Home and Antiques magazine coming to photograph the house this week so will share all soon.
We have had a fab outing to the local fete, selling some of our lovely vintage treasures…
Our lovely biscuit book has hit the shelves:
With loads of vintage inspired biscuit designs and detailed instructions on how to ice and decorate biscuits it has a little something for everyone. It is really odd seeing it in the bookshops as it took ages to write and print. Starting work on the new vintage book this week…
