Vintage Fair

I went to the Sydney Vintage fair, last Friday. Spent too much but came away with a foundation garment (been looking for one of those for ages) and some other treats...

May I present to you Moviestar Knits,

All the beaut knits in here a made from 4ply or thinner, so sore fingers, but what beauty!

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. 

So please enjoy
