Vintage love: Taunton Vale Ceramics

I can't believe it has taken me this long to get around to blogging about my beloved Taunton Vale ceramic storage jars. I bought them about eight years ago at a jumble sale and I absolutely love them. They cost me £1 for all three which I think by anyone's standards is a bargain.

I think I love them because they have the most quintessential retro pattern on them, big, bold flowers in bright colours, I can't get enough of them. They are also really tactile with lovely bulbous lids which I love to take on and off (vintage geek that I am).

They sit pride of place in my kitchen. I don't use them for storage, just for display. I like to think of them as my retirement fund and hope they will have increased in value from £1 to who knows how much in a few years time...

If you'd like to see more retro goodies, head on over to my "Vintage Finds" board over on Pinterest...

Vintage trims

I've been adding a lovely selection of trims in the vintage supplies section of my etsy store.

The trim featured above is a gorgeous geometric trim in sky blue and oatmeal which is 2" wide and sold by the yard.

Next up is a vintage amber and gold trim which is sold in 4 yard bundles.

I have also listed two vintage trims in warmer, earthy tones. The first is vintage cubes trim in lemon and cocoa. And finally, a striking woven trim in terracotta and chocolate brown. Both are sold in 4 yard bundles.
