A little bit vintage

Vintage fabric from Retro Age Vintage Fabrics

Happy New Year friends… I know it’s the 3rd today and I’m a bit late but I’m really not a fan of January 1st. I’m not sure why that is but I’m always happier when the 2nd rolls around. I’m going for a few changes on my blog front – nothing too drastic but I’m sure before the year is out there will also be a redesign in there somewhere.

So why not welcome in the new by talking about the old. I seem to be seeing vintage fabric everywhere at the moment. How do these people find such well preserved vintage fabrics? I went online (as you do) for a Google search and came up with Retro Age Vintage Fabrics – an Australian website that has the most, dare I say, nostalgic range of vintage fabrics. I am convinced that we used to holiday in a house with curtains made from #5 fabric. It’s funny how music and smells can instantly bring back memories I had a similar experience with this fabric.

I have specifically chosen fabrics from the 70′s and 80′s but you probably guessed that right? I’m having a hard time calling it vintage because I equate that with calling myself vintage.

    First, I don’t think that you’re vintage – but the fabrics are :) To me Vintage has come to mean 60′s 70′s, mostly.
    Second, I love those fabrics, especially #4!!

    These are a wonderful step back in time to my childhood. Maybe that’s why I like these colors so much.
