Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in 2017 from Gloriously Vintage



Merry Christmas!  I hope you are well and are enjoying Christmas Day!  Have a wonderful time over the Christmas Holiday and I wish a Happy , Healthy, and Fulfilling year for you, Dear Reader in 2017!


At the end of October Glenn broke a rib and my mother was unwell at the same time.  I had to step back from posting as with working too I did not have enough life to stretch round all my responsibilities.  Glenn is now fully recovered and my Mother is better although not 100%.  She will be able to enjoy a lovely time with the family.

We have a lot of catching up to do and I am so looking forward to the New Year.  I hope you will be able to join me on Gloriously Vintage and chat in the Comments – I have missed you and missed writing posts!

See you in 2017!


About Gloriously Vintage

My name is Elizabeth. I am so thrilled to be learning how to write a blog about my adventures collecting vintage treasures. This new adventure is to mark my 60th Birthday this February in 2016 and to start this decade with something new. I have been collecting Powder compacts, 1950's costume jewellery, vintage handbags, silk scarves, vintage umbrellas and hats for over five years now. I try to wear and use as much of my collections as possible. This has added great enjoyment to my life! As a child my "best game " was always dressing up. I kept all my dressing up clothes in a large wooden banded trunk in the spare bedroom -the third bedroom. Creating outfits and characters, wearing jewellery always with a handbag and a powder compact I would play on my own for hours. Most of my treasures then came from jumble sales and bric a brac shops browsed with my parents on holiday. Life has a way of coming round full circle. In my fifties I found increasing joy in being able to just be myself and adopt the hairstyle I wanted and the vintage look that suited me. I source all my "top clothes" from Oxfam on line and charity shops Mixing new tops, shoes and sometimes handbags with my vintage accessories has given me a signature style that is unique. I have always tried to be an individual and not follow the crowd. I find most of my collections at vintage fairs, charity shops and going to Antiques for Everyone at the NEC has been a marvellous time for hunting out treasures and learning more about the things that have sparked real passion for me.

  1. Hello Elizabeth, what a wonderful site! I too love vintage everything, and my absolute passion is for silk scarves. For me, I love square scarves best – with small squares, I fold them into a 2 inch band and tie them round my neck, pushing the knot to one side. I love this look and regularly wear a scarf this way. But I wanted to ask you about headscarves: I have several larger square silk scarves – about 26 or 27 inches square, and when the weather isn’t good (which is often here in England!) I have started to wear a headscarf, tying the 2 ends together snugly under my chin. I have started to get a lot of lovely comments from people when I am out and wearing a headscarf like this. So I wanted to ask if you ever wear a headscarf? It feels so lovely feeing the silk on my cheeks, and even my husband has commented that it is a very classy and elegant look. I have started to really love wearing headscarves in this way and just wanted to ask for your thoughts. Much love, Georgina x
