The Vintage Caravan

I thought I should probably put a few photos up of Lola before i write about the great transformation. These photos are original advertisements for the Thompson Mini Glen back in the 60s. Wait till you've seen what i've done to her! I hope you like it!

Thanks to for the photos.

Great British Afternoon Tea

So, i thought i would write two posts today as i have been neglecting this blog lately. I’ve been so busy over the last few weeks setting up the crockery hire company ( i haven’t had chance to sit down and type. Husband and i also decided to go away to Stamford in the vintage caravan. I’m sure you’ll forgive me!

Where do i start? The website has now been live for a couple of weeks and i have already had several enquiries which I’m ecstatic about! I’m so pleased with the response i’ve had, I couldn’t have asked for more. It’s great knowing there are so many other people out there that have a love for afternoon tea! And of course pretty crockery. So Thank You!

I could sit and dream about afternoon tea for hours. A dream of mine would be to run a little tea shop... think gorgeous embroidered vintage tablecloths, vintage crockery, mis-matched chairs and furniture, chintzy cake stands and me running around in a 50’s style dress serving up tea and scones. Ahh bliss! Maybe one day... until then i can keep visiting lovely quaint tea shops in the Cotswolds!

Coming next... the grand reveal of the vintage caravan!

Vintage Eiderdowns

Firstly, apologies for not writing any posts recently. Note to self: I must write this blog regularly! It's been a busy but fun time lately with the renovation of the caravan and setting up myvintageparty.

Had to share my latest purchase with you. It's this gorgeous yummy scrumptious pink vintage paisley eiderdown that I bought on ebay. I think it is the start of an obsession. I've wanted one for a while now but i've resisted until now. Well, i'm pleased i did, it looks absolutely fabulous in the caravan!! Mmmmmnnnnnnnn..........

Gorgeous! Need one in every colour now! What do you think?!

The website is FINISHED!!!

Hello vintage-lovers

Well, the website is finally up and running so take a look at I'm sure you'll agree with me it looks fab! I would love to hear your comments!

It has been a very busy time for myvintageparty lately as we have recently purchased a vintage caravan, yes, you heard me correct. We bought a 1967 Thompson Mini Glen, originally built to be towed with a Mini (hhhmmmmmm, that's next on the shopping list!). It is a tiny little caravan but sooo cute! I have great plans for it... think yummy Cath Kidston material, scrumtious polka dots and plenty of bunting. Ahhh, think of all those lovely afternoon teas I can have in Lola. That's right, she is called Lola, for no particular reason other than I think it suits her! Photos of the renovation to come on the next post!

Till then.....
