New Vida Textiles Website

There is a new Vida Textiles website!  It looks pretty much like the old one, except you can now buy online.  Consequently the blog has also moved.  So if you are looking at this blog, please go to the new one, where there will be plenty of new updates coming through.

Another op-shop find – these beautifully handmade, locally made blankets were from a trip to Taranaki where they live in plentiful supply. We bought them just before winter hit this year and the kids just love them.

Thank God for the Op-shop

Teacups and saucers by Royal Dalton, Royal Albert and Royal Tudor

To say that my husband is an enthusiast of second hand shopping is an understatement – passionate is probably a more accurate word. Spending many of his 45 minute lunch breaks ferreting through clothes, furniture and crockery he has managed to funrish our house, cloth our family and feed them with tresures – reviving these treasures for many more days to come. The tea set above is the result of a trip through Whanganui – a crockery tresure trove.
