Happy 1st Birthday

 Yes, it’s Mrs Fox’s Finery & Fancies one year birthday!

I can’t believe this is my 70th post, I have managed to keep this blog going for a year now! In this time I have made new friends from all over the world, taken part in 2 blog swaps and got to share my love of vintage for 365 glorious days. It’s not a bad life but someone has to do it!

The wife has been roped into being my photographer whether she likes it or not and has also become a ‘blog widow’ from time to time. My mobile phone now has more photos on than I know what you do with (as my camera stopped working on holiday in Florida and I have never bothered to get it fixed). Perhaps most importantly I can now (attempt) to justify any desired purchase with …..’but I could put it on the blog!’ Good for my wardrobe, not so good for my purse.

When my laptop died a few months ago I found myself totally lost without it, which may be a good or bad thing. I may not have set the blogging world on fire but I hope the people who do find my site enjoy what I say.

A few of the things I set out to do on the blog have been harder than I thought they would be. My biggest aim was to try to bring physical media onto my blog (after all I am an old school girl) and not use anyone else’s images or content. This has been hard at times when I have seen something I wanted to share but if I have been unable to get a photo myself I haven’t written about it. My photos are not cutting edge but the fact I can even update WordPress with my own pictures is pretty cutting edge for someone like me so that’s an achievement in itself and something I never thought I could do over a year ago!

Blogging has given me a great amount of joy and a chance to have a voice I didn’t know I wanted to share. I have had a lot of support with my blog and it’s given me the confidence to give it a go.

I know I said at 6 months I was going to set up an online shop but with changes in my day-to-day life some of the blog aims have had to take a step back, plus I really do like meeting people at Vintage fairs and so am still a little torn about it!

So thanks to you all for being on the journey of Mrs Fox’s with me and who knows what the next year will bring?
