I have spent hours washing and starching lace doilies. I reckon that I’m the only person who uses starch these days. You do get a lovely stiff finish however.
At the last count I had ironed 47 doilies and 6 table cloths! This is for our new venture “Nanna Amy’s Vintage Tea Party” whose launch party gets ever closer!
With the party in mind I have made Blackberry jam. Imagine freshly baked scones, clotted cream and Blackberry jam. Heaven on a plate! All served on vintage place settings.
Nanna Amys Vintage Tea Party is a hire service for very vintage China and freshly laundered (and starched) table linen. We’ve got lace, embroidery and crochet cloths to compliment beautiful mix and match vintage tea sets. It’s great fun. Perfect for a very special very vintage party.

I have been sooooo busy sorting,washing and cataloging all the vintage China that I have in my tiny cottage in preparation for the launch of Nanna Amy’s Tea Party next week. Darling Daughter and I are starting work on the marketing and networking for our fledgling lovely business next week. So there will be loads more to tell you!

Darling Daughter has been working hard on the internet side of the project. We are about to launch the web site, Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter, all of which I need lessons on. It’s great fun and exciting.
The business is named after my Grandmother who was a beautiful needle woman and I have inherited her embroidered table cloths and lace doilies.
Nanna Amy died many years ago but is fondly remembered by my eldest children. I had a bemused phone call from elder son yesterday as he had received a Twitter message from Nanna Amy?!! I had not told him about the business details and he was bemused how he could receive a message from “beyond”.
I have mentioned Our latest venture a few times but now we are about to go more public.
We have a marketing strategy, launch date and our first real booking.
We have collected China, starched linen and made vintage bunting.
We need to solve transport of precious vintage China, delivery prices and advertising stationery.
Most of all IT IS GOOD FUN!
