Back to the Forties

32-year-old  British Airways flight attendant Ben Sansum purchased a small four-room cottage in Godmanchester, England a few years ago and has transformed it into the perfect period house. He has bought enough original furniture, clothing and other everyday commodities from the era to equip his home in 100% forties style.

His hobby is presented as a bit of an oddity but I think it's quite normal. I'm a modern girl living in a vintage world so Ben is a man after my own heart. I live in a circa 1900 house. My appliances are modern but most of my furniture, dishes, artwork, garden tools and linens are vintage.
