Trumpet Blowing Tuesday

At this time of year, it's all very easy to get buried under mounds of wrapping paper and sellotape, as well as feeling like you're wasting all your time stuck in queue after queue – be it in the shops or on the road. However, Vintage Twee has been hitting the headlines the past couple of weeks within a variety of different magazines and online blog articles and I thought I would take a mere moment away from creating my Christmas gift tags to share the good news with you this week!

I was delighted to discover that one of the biggest bridal magazines in the country, Wedding, had featured not just one, but two of my items in this month's issue! My 'I Do' Cupcake Sticks had made it to number 5 on their Wedding List and I realised what popstars must feel like when they discover what number their single goes into in the charts...(which this week makes Vintage Twee equivalent to Rihanna - beating Katy Perry, JLS and Jacko...whoo hoo!)
About to put down the magazine and indulge in the beautiful free Crabtree & Evelyn hand lotion that came with this issue, I noticed something else which looked vintagely familiar a few pages later. My Popcorn Cone Favours had been featured as part of a retro themed photo shoot which made me squeal with delight! So far I've had some great feedback from the articles & some orders for both of these items which is fabulous and I'm very proud to have had my work featured in such a significant publication in the wedding world.
From national to local news...Vintage Twee was also snapped at the Vintage Village Fair at Stockport Market Hall last month. Thinking that I had escaped the lipstick-less exposure when the article didn't appear in the Stockport Times that week, I was informed by my lovely Twitter friends @TinTrunk and @Itsa_mistry that the dreaded photo had in fact found its way onto page 28 of this weeks paper...drat! It was, however, a great article on the fantastic vintage and craft fair held every second Sunday of the month at Stockport's historic market hall and drew in the crowds for last Sunday's Christmas special event on Dec 12th. However, I was very disappointed that nobody brought their article to be autographed, despite my Twitter requests..grrrr...

AND finally, to finish on an international note, Vintage Twee was contacted by online German magazine 1001hochzeiten.de who are currently working on a series of articles about themed weddings and would like to feature my Enchanted Fairytale Favour Boxes! I shall keep you posted on the date this shall be online to view...although make sure you have your interpreter at the ready as unless you're fluent in German, you shall have to just look at the pretty pictures!

Enough trumpet blowing for now, Auf Wiedersehen! xxx
