  1. well, I actually use the woollen tea cosies and just sold a cottage one on ebay a few weeks ago to a lady in the US. and I have been collecting those crocheted blankets for years. I think it is because we are trying to recapture days that invoke safe and happy memories…where we could be children and have no worries…cept what kind of iceblock to choose !

  2. Well, I love those things too – especially crochet doillies. And all it means is we are AHEAD of "fashion". Actually it kind of annoys me that all things vintage are fashionable now, because it's put the price up somewhat. Gone are the days when you could pick up a gorgeous old embroidered tablecloth for a few cents 🙁

  3. Okay ladies ~ I must admit that I am a huge fan of Eastenders and do oohh and ahhh over certain 'props'…much to Mark's amusement!

I'm with you suzie ~ hate the fact that vintage is so fashionable now 🙂

  6. We sell them in our kitchen shop, and they do very well. We reorder them often, so there IS hope for vintage-kitchen ladies yet! Although the true vintage cozies have much more charm I think!
