YouTube video

I just had to share this video about a rescued dog with you.  It made me cry but it does have a happy ending.

There's not much blogging going on in the Oh SoVintage household at the moment!  But just so that you don't forget about me I thought I would share some of my favourite fashion photos from Pinterest.  Are you like me and totally addicted to it?  Once I am on Pinterest all sense of time goes out of the window and I am lost in all the beautiful images I find on there.

What strikes me is how many times I see the same image and so it obviously appeals to such a lot of people.
For instance I come across these pictures again and again so is this what we would all like to dress like I wonder?

sweater + white dress + tights + boots


Shirt is from H&M and shoes are pinky rose from romwe.com.

my style

Well I certainly wouldn't mind looking ;like any of these ladies!  One of my favourite items of clothing on Pinterest is this Noa Noa dress which would not suit me but I just love it.  

Noa noa

I do like their clothing and am disappointed we don't have a Noa Noa store near me.  Recently I visited their store in Cirencester and bought this dress but haven't had occasion to wear it yet.

Another great thing about Pinterest is finding so many good ideas.  This photo has a tutorial about making wrist warmers from old socks and lace.  I intend to have a go at this so will post some photos if it is successful.

Baking Cupboard

Having seen this wonderful larder/pantry in a John Lewis of Hungerford store this week I came home and decided to re-arrange the old linen cupboard I have in my kitchen into a baking cupboard.

Following on from that I then decided to make some Cranberry & Apple Chutney and Chilli Jam (both courtesy of Nigella's Christmas).  I intend to give some homemade edible presents at Christmas so these were a practice run to see what they were like.  I also made some linen labels to attach to the jars.
