vintage village...




Four years ago I came across a box at a market stall with a 50c price tag. Inside were hiding these gorgeous little vintage houses and soldiers that were just to cute to resist. I am still deciding how best to display them. Any ideas?

oh too cute indeed! I would be tempted to maybe do two or three smaller displays - either on a mantle or even under a cloche on a cake pedlestal to make a real display of it.
Merry Christmas!

so cute, and soooo cheap - I never find such wonderful treats! - no doubt you will display with incredible style (you all are incredibly talented in the style department)
Wishing you all a beautiful Christmas and New Year with your families. It has been such a delight to get to know you via the 'world wide web' in the last six months, looking forward to catching up once again in the new year. love lots xx

This brings back so many happy memories <3 I visited Ikea a few weeks ago where I spotted a wooden train set which is almost indentical as the ones I used to play with as a child and I still want them! I gave them away years ago but now I am seriously considering buying the train set! Goodness if my friends know they'll think I'm nuts. Anyway I'm so glad that you love the same thing :o) I'm afraid I don't have any clever ideas how to display them but I'm hoping someone else will comment and will have one.

Have a lovely weekend, Liesel

These are amazing... I wonder if I could make some.. but they have that lovely vintage quality which is altogether impossible to create without years and years. Oh, I love them.

I had pieces just like this when I was a kid. I think they were kept in the box of Lego. I have no idea where they ended up. I must hunt them down. A lovely blog - I was pointed this way by Desire To Inspire. I'll have to take some time to have a wee peek.
