Saturday morning -

It's so lovely to have a few minutes just before Saturday lunch to write about something really important to me and which I hope you will love:

As you all know, I am passionate about vintage lovelies and have been for a good few years now. I try hard to look after my website, not very successfully at the moment I agree, however, I have been giving some of my time and passion to a new venture in which I believe wholeheartedly and am trying hard to promote.

I am a pioneer for Pretty Nostalgic which you will find here : www.prettynostalgic  I urge you to pop over as soon as you can!

So - what is it?

The original Pretty Nostalgic was a monthly magazine based on the following :

It was and still is, an independent publication, edited by an amazing lady called Nicole, helped by her art editor, Rae and supported solely by its subscribers.

Life became difficult for Pretty Nostalgic due to hitting a funding wall, so Nicole went to Kickstarter to try to raise the funding needed to keep going.  After this success, the next edition was published with the Goodwood Revival as its main theme.  Following this many amazing people joined what has become the Pretty Nostalgic Society. 

Is the Pretty Nostalgic Society for you?

Only you can answer that so here is some information to help you decide:

The Pretty Nostalgic motto is : Spend Wisely, Waste Less, Appreciate More

This can be interpreted in any number of ways but we pioneers generally yearn for more civilised times where life was less commercialised.  This means we believe in and try to live in a creative, sustainable way, enjoy crafting, baking, growing, sewing, preserving, upcycling etc. and love sharing our skills with others.  Personally I enjoy baking, growing, preserving and upcycling because these are things I can do and love; in another life I could sew, craft and brew but hey, sometimes it's important to choose to leave behind some things and indulge in others yes?

Having said that - we aren't all about living life without computers, mobile phones etc. - without modern technology it would be so much harder to communicate and so I wouldn't be able to write this nor you read it and comment.

If you think this might be you or something to which you aspire then have a think about joining us.  To help you make the decision and to give you more of an idea of what the magazine is about, then you can buy one of the back issues as a starter.  These are available via

If you know it is for you then a subscription costs just £40 each year and there are special subscriber offers on the Pretty Nostalgic website at the moment.  You can also tweet @pretty nostalgic or email to

Hope to talk to you via Facebook soon.
