Hi every one, my name is Helen, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I am super lucky to live by the sea in sunny East Sussex with my Husband, our Son and Daughter. I love to create, whether its baking cakes in the kitchen, being surrounded by pretty floral fabrics at the sewing machine or finger painting with the kids, its when I am at my happiest!
I studied Surface and Textile Design and have worked as a Freelance Textile Designer. I really enjoyed exploring different trends and influences but my personal style always edged towards delicate floral prints, femine tones and interesting textures.
When Mr BLV FINALLY popped the question we decided early on that we wanted a laid back, relaxed vintage tea party feel to our wedding, with a nod to my favourite era the 1940's. I had the perfect excuse to induldge my passion for all things vintage and my collection of crockery, props and vintage pretties grew and grew! After months of creating and crafting our wedding arrived and it was everything we could have hoped for, just perfect! Our vision really came to life. After the whirl wind of our wedding and romantic Mini Moon in a quaint Cornish cottage I felt that something was missing, I was craving another creative project to work on so Betty Loves Vintage was born.
I created Betty (Named after my Grandmother) Loves Vintage as it encapsulates everthing that I love. I can't wait to share my vintage and hand made treasues and my creative thinking with you.
