How lovely was our visit to the 50’s Vintage fair in Guildford Cathedral last Saturday! ‘Lou-Lou’s Vintage Fair’ has won awards, and definitely lived up to high expectations with a strong turn-out of locals, scouring through the fabulous 1920’s to 1960’s memorabilia, clothing stands, ornaments, nick-nacks, and a lovely afternoon tea. So my Lauren and my niece Becky decided it’d be rude not to!
Plus I bought Lolly a Xmas pressie – a vintage suitcase – one of those big hard brown luggage cases with ribbing and stickers. She’s even more into vintage than I am. We also got some old fashioned postcards and prints. There was even a band! Here’s a little look around.
I want one of those book-handbags!
I was dead chuffed to get into a size 12 Vintage 50’s style dress on Frilly Chantilly’s stand – see top pic. It is an extremely beautiful forest green with velvet embellishment that’s a bit like a jacquard, and I even bought the petticoat to go with it!
Now I just need an event to go to in it – such a lovely neckline too. Yes of course I need different boots!
But I came out, having got into a small size, feeling over the moon! We’ll definitely go again next year, and if they have one near you, do go along. I loved it so much – yes, I think I must have been around in the 50’s and the ‘20’s.
If you could have been born in another decade, which one would it be? Do leave me a message to let me know – comment at the bottom of this blog (especially if you haven’t for a long time – or ever)!
Debbie Does Decorating- #4!
This week I was joined by Bradley and Kari (in the background), to help with the wall painting job! OK so I haven’t been there as much as I’d like, but Lauren and Nick seem to be doing a grand job of it all. He’s now at fitted kitchen stage. The only thing is, the loo still isn’t plumbed in to flush, just to drain! But they’re getting there! Another few weeks…! And then I get my house back… er I mean, and then my lovely daughter and her man, move in to their lovely new house! I will miss Baloo the Spaniel though…
Spot the Spaniel on the Slanket!
I tweeted this pic this week – as Gary, The Slanket guest was back on with his fab Christmas gift idea.
I was very pleased also to give you advance warning about some of the One Time Only bargains about to go on air – my goodness did those Laura Geller and Decleor ones fly!
Plus one woman’s amazing pics of using prolagene gel, an early look at the Skechers TSV colours – they’d mostly gone by 9am after our midnight launch. If you want tho see more sneaky peeks, feel free to follow me on Twitter – I’m @debbieflint.

Lovely Laura 10th Anni shows
Wow what amazing shows we had – here’s lovely Laura Geller herself, with make up whizz Johnny and visitor and birthday girl Andie Stephany who runs the ‘Get Geller Gorgeous’ Facebook group.
Johnny was complimenting me on my Hawaiian Affair book which he and Laura had both read – how nice to have pals say they like it. (Info about my novels on my website www.debbieflint.co.uk/writing).
Moon Walk Booked!
Jackie Kabler, fellow presenter, plus Ali K and a QVC gang will be walking next May’s charity Moonwalk on 16th, through the streets of London at night wearing a bra and t shirt! I’ve registered for the full walk, under TeamQVC, finishing after 6-7 hours, well that’s the plan! Think I’ll have my Skechers trainers at the ready for that amount of walking! More here.
Abbey Horne in Bloom Mat Trim pulled a blinder this week with this pic he posted on fFacebook– gosh she looks so beautiful! Only three weeks to go, too. We were chatting about it and she said it’s been an easy pregnancy – lucky her! I said I was about that big with my second one when I was around FIVE months pregnant! The midwife said ‘coming soon are we?’ ‘Yes in sixteen weeks’ time..!’ I cried! Good luck Abbey – and well done Mat for this amazing pic.
On Sky plus this week – the Wolf of Wall Street – suuuuch a good movie. Leonardo di Caprio is absolutely amazing, so is Jonah Hill, and there’s a wonderful cameo from Joanna Lumley. I scored it highly when I saw it at the cinema and though it’s long, I’d see it again – mainly for the scene in the middle where he and Jonah are crawling on the floor – if you’ve seen it you’ll know what I mean! Catch it on Sky if you can!
Next week – it’s Hallowe’en! Our freebie eBook Hocus Pocus ’14 goes live.
Have a trimming and toning week!
