Hoorah for Pretty Nostalgic


There's a new magazine in town and I for one got very excited when the first issue landed on our doormat! I positively whooped with delight when I saw it and rushed to put the kettle on so I could enjoy a flick through with a nice cup of Earl Grey (or 'Early G' as we call it in the Treasure household).

Pretty Nostalgic's got a lovely feel to it, the layout's really inviting and there are oodles of interesting articles and bits and pieces to read.

I was particularly drawn to the A to Z of haberdashery. I also loved the article 'Remember Me to All at Home' about a box of wartime letters that were discovered in a cobweb-covered shed.

This is a fabulous idea and got me thinking...

...it's all about readers documenting their most treasured items and then telling the stories behind them. Pretty Nostalgic's an absolute gem and well worth a read.

The ever talented team at Pretty Nostalgic has also published a sumptuous book called Home, which, like the maagzine is packed full of photos and bits and pieces to tempt every vintage lover. Here's a sneaky peek...






If you've been tempted and fancy having a copy all to yourself, I'll be selling Home on my Textile Treasure Seeker stall at the next Vintage and Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury, on 26th May.

Isn't it wonderful having magazines in our lives! Thankfully I don't get much chance to indulge in them.. but I love Country Living, Small Holders and Garden News and when I go away I treat myself to one that is new! Lovely post. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx
