I'm New Here

First of all 'Hello' to anyone who reads this. My name is Ruth and I have been meaning to create a blog for a very long time so, at long last, here it is.

I really enjoy reading other vintage blogs, touring around from people's favourites to others then realise I've lost all track of time becoming so involved in other people's lives.

I live in Hampshire with my husband and 17 year old son and reading vintage blogs is one escape from conversations entirely focussed on football and cars. My 22 year old daughter recently left home but fortunately she regularly comes home for girlie chats.

I have a website if anyone fancies having a peep and I run this with my friend Jane (I'm the one on the left). This photo was taken at a recent antiques fair that we did together.
I think this is enough for my first blog but I hope to keep publishing.....


  1. Hi Ruth!

    Welcome to the world of blogger! I know you've enjoyed reading all the lovely 'vintage' blogs out there and now I'm sure you'll enjoy having your own blog - and we'll all enjoy reading it!

    It's nice to put a face to the emails!

    Best Wishes, Clare

  2. Hi Ruth

    Clare sent me to you and I see you have my blog listed in your favourites. Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy visiting. Good luck with your blog. I'm sure you'll soon get plenty of regular visitors and will have such fun keeping us all posted.

    Hope to see you at Shepton at some stage.
