The Story So Far...

Bwhousekeeperscircle_1

Once upon a time, there was a little woman in a little house with a little dream. And the dream came true... 

All of a sudden there was a thriving community of scrumptious girlies in Cath Kidston pinny's, puttering past themselves and making the world prettier one Brocante moment at a time...

The Vintage HouseKeepers Circle has, in a very short space of time, been a rather fabulous success. There are Polka Dot members across the world awaiting delivery of their first yummy little parcels, lots of Gingham members about to receive their first ribbon tied envelopes and a little collective of Chintz members already creating a prettier way of life on the puttering programme.   

I can't tell you what a privilege it is to be putting together envelopes filled with teeny tiny things I hope will brighten many a blue Monday morning: what a thrill it is to see something in an antique shop, that I know will make someone across the world smile: it is like christmas shopping everyday without the added pressure of long lost relatives and turkey!! I am having so much fun, and while only a few of my Circle HouseKeepers are chatting on the forum so far, what lovely, inspirational conversation we are having, and what an absolute joy it is to meet women who share my downright obsession with all things vintage and homely...   

But my favorite part of the circle? The HouseKeepers Gazette. Without wanting to blow my own trumpet-here is the blog I wish somebody else wrote: not because I don't adore writing it, I just kinda wish, that as a Domestic Goddess Wannabee, I could happen across something like it on the net and wait in anticipation for the next post. Over the past two weeks, we have met the Vintage Mommies and Mama Wiskas, re-defined ourselves as Modern Retro Housewives, baked Caraway Tea Bread with Agnes Jekyll, read other peoples shopping lists, made a Housewifes Friend, learnt how to clean with hot water and elbow grease, re-invented ourselves as the bombshells we used to be, created a comfort drawer, read our housekeeping horoscopes, wandered round my house and a whole lot more...

It's been everything I've dreamt of and so much more...
