After months of hard work and planning by Lucy Ledger Designs (apart from the below header images, I knocked those up) and the Under the Vintage Veil team, we’re really proud to unveil the new look blog in all its glory! We’re also so pleased to announce a brand new schedule and feel to Under the Vintage Veil that we hope you’ll love.

Introducing… Over the Vintage Threshold!
Logo by Lucy Ledger Designs
In the next few weeks we will be confirming the launch date of our brand new sister website, Over the Vintage Threshold!
The site will cover all aspects of vintage-inspired living, from the beautifully decorated hideaways when you’re planning your holiday, vintage-inspired (and second-hand vintage) clothing and fashion, home décor, entertaining, love and marriage, kids and even vintage technology.
The name Over the Vintage Threshold was thought up between Meryl and I (she suggested “Vintage Threshold”, I suggested “Over the” – how’s that for teamwork?) as it perfectly describes the kind of readers Under the Vintage Veil has attracted so far. For our brides, it’s quite literal, we follow your journey Over the Vintage Threshold and into married life, but this isn’t a marriage blog. Over the Vintage Threshold is just for anyone and everyone who loves the vintage lifestyle.
It also comes at a perfect time for us as we are completely redesigning the inside of our house. We’ll be documenting that process and giving you tips and tricks along the way, just as we did with Under the Vintage Veil (see the video above).
You can show your support for Over the Vintage Threshold by:
♥ Liking the brand new Over the Vintage Threshold Facebook page for updates on the launch date and fun vintage-inspired content while we’re waiting and…
♥ Following Over the Vintage Threshold on Twitter (we’re otvthreshold)
We really hope you’ll follow our Over the Vintage Threshold journey as well as the rebranded Under the Vintage Veil and we look forward to announcing the launch date really soon…
