I thought I'd join in with Meet Me At Mikes weekly blog homework and this week theme is collecting. Well I racked my brain trying to choose what to include; Crockery, napery, stationary, knit patterns, uke music, my precious complete Golden Hands books or my magazine collection.
My husband decided to make this easier by taking the camera into work, but I still have the scanner!
Now I haven't counted, but I would have over 100 vintage mags from the '20s through to now (though I wish I'd kept that 3D Dolly from the '80s- it was magical) so I had to narrow it down.
I chose the '50s because there is a sumptuousness to these covers, war was over, lifestyles and incomes were on the up and there seems to be an air of possibility.
I'm a Sydney girl with a passion for craft and the past. This has led to a large collection of old knitting patterns, an even larger collection of old magazines, not to mention collections of craft books, vintage fabrics, and sheet music for the 20's to the 60's. I use alot of this stuff on a regular basis and want to share it!
