Orange for starters....


Thank you to Juliab for asking about other vintage bits in our home.  Sadly not enough hours in the day to blog about all the things in our house so uploading an old montage of some of the orange and yellowy things in our house.  A mix of china and fabrics and bits and bobs as usual.  Let me know if you would like to know more about any of them  - some have appeared on this blog in the past but I like the overall look of a montagey type thingy!

PS:
Also sorry about blogger being a bit bloggy - I have lost track of how many comments that I have left that never appear or blogs that I thought that I was following but fall off the track.  Does anyone know why/how that happens?  Sorry if I have seemed rude in any way by not commenting but I am there - similarly the Enigma code that you have to break in order to post a comment drives my ku-ra-zy sometimes.  I will keeping trying but often collapse after the tenth attempt (the other day the Enigma code did not change each time it refreshed - goodness knows how many combos I tried!!)

PPS - Am now 'getting on' - got a small mountain of work to complete!

  1. Hello Jenny:
    We very much like your collage of vintage items, any one of which would, we feel, tell a story.

    As for Blogger, frustrating at the best of times. As for word verification, it too drives us insane and we gave up using it ourselves quite some time ago.

    1. Dear Jane and Lance - how kind and yes indeed there is an extra special long yarn for each item!
      Oh Blogger....

  2. You are on a roll Jenny, love the posts! These photos are brill! Love the colours! I've started a 'switch off the word thingy campaign'! They drive me bonkers....could be my age and eyesight issues! Ada :)

    1. Thank you Ada - this is a sure sign that I should be getting on with the small mountain of other things and I am painfully distracting myself...oh dear

  3. Lovely, autumnal colours ... particularly like the primrose tin!

    Don't get me started about the 'prove you're not a robot' thingy! It really does make you want to give up, and is it me, or are they getting smaller, more shufled together, and absolutely more impossible to read, even with my vari-focals!

    Grr ... have a lovely week,

    1. Many thanks Claire - I too have entered the world of vari-focals - not quite the revolution that I had hoped for (despite the great expense!) as I still cannot see to thread a needle so have to ask the children...
      Grr indeed

  4. I enjoyed playing "Where's Miffy?" ! And you are right about the enigma-code hassles of word verification recently. I blame the Bletchley Circle

    have a good week!

    1. Many thanks Angela and glad that you found the buckle post. I took the children to Bletchley Park in the summer (en route to my sisters) and had a great time there!

  6. Love the yellow and orange mosaic, orange is right 'on trend' as they say this year! Glad to hear it is not just me that suffers with the enigma code thingy, I thought I was going to have to book to see the optician again!

    1. Yay - we are trendy this season! To be honest most of the orange bits are in Bronte's bedroom as that is 70s in its general appearance. Nice and cheery though!
      Your eyes are good to go!

  8. I love all you vintage bits, I wish I had more space to accommodate more stuff! Loving the orange montage too:)

    1. Dear katysclutter
      Noooooo - more space is not the answer! For many years we lived in a one bedroomed flat...it was quite full and I thought that a house would be the solution....first house had three bedrooms and that pretty soon was full. Our home now has five bedrooms, cellar and attic....standing room only....!

  11. I have to say I find most things about blogger baffling. I often post comments and then end up losing them. I think the fact that I manage to do a post at all is more good luck than anything else! I love your blog and the humour you put into it by the way!

      I do sometimes wonder if my odd sense of humour is fully conveyed here on the wonderweb

  12. I love the cup, plate, bowl lady - thats fantastic and I have never seen anything like it - do you know anything about them? I hate the word verification, sometimes I give up because I have tried so many times Faye x

    1. Thank you Faye - these were all bought from a local charity shop (they turned up two weeks apart!). I think that they were made in Korea in the 70s and come in male and female form, clowns too I have seen! Keep your eyes peeled and they will turn up

  14. I love the montage, it's a great idea and looks brilliant! I do understand about bloggyness- sometimes I feel that if I actually visit all my blog friends and comment, then I never have time to write mine! Jane xx
