First post and a bit about us!

Hello and welcome to our little blog! I'm not sure how great I'll be at this blogging malarkey but here goes anyway!
So I'll start off with a bit about me - I'm Emily and one half of Vintage Pixie (the other half being my lovely Mum). I live in a small flat in Leatherhead with my husband, two kids and lots of lovely vintage and antique furniture. I dream of one day having the perfect character house for all my beautiful old finds but for now this is us and it's all good.
Here's a picture of our little family at our wedding in Sicily last year. It was a fantastic, relaxed and fun day, everything you want a wedding to be! :)

Vintage Pixie was born 4 years ago when I was made redundant from my marketing job in London. Since that time it has been many things - a hobby, a sideline while I worked on other things and now, my real and actual business. I absolutely adore my job, it's so multi-faceted! One day I'll be hunting out a fantastic dresser for a customer or just buying something old that needs some TLC, the next making some cute gifts or home accessories, making over someone's furniture to vintage-style loveliness or organising a vintage fair (our first being at Shalford, Guildford on June 18th see for more details)!!
Hopefully I will occasionally have something interesting to say/show you! But in the meantime, hello and welcome to the slightly dis-organised world of Vintage Pixie! :o)
