I found this little programme for a tiny price of 25p at a local vintage shop. It was the front cover that drew me in, and then as I flicked through the pages I saw some lovely examples of high-end fashion from the time.
It is such a step back in time, and as I flick through the pages I can imagine my self at the theatre, dressed up to the nines in my art deco beaded attire! The adverts are aimed at ladies with money, and really brings back the allure of the luxury of the time! Glorious!
Hi all! Its been ages since I last blogged, I am so sorry to the regular readers. I have been pretty run down since Crimbo so I hope you will forgive my slackness!
Now I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and frankly feel like I have tonnes to show you, and am surely going to end up creating a mish mash of posts over the coming weeks of all the bits and bobs I know you will like to see. Organisation never has been a good point so again do forgive any randomness!
I excitedly wanted to show any vintage lovers this really lovely vintage tin I found today. It’s super super pretty and is a confectionary tin for Dainty Dianah toffees. It’s a bit battered but still charming. As always I did a little digging and found this website which is full of all sorts of information on Horners, Dainty Dinah tins. It’s worth a peek!
So today is World Mental Health Day, and with the subject mental health being close to my heart I thought I would spread the awareness of this day! I thought I would share this scan from a small book I found at my Grandad’s when he passed away a few years ago. Although the book is battered I could not resist keeping the torn pages as they really are a snippet of the past. Unfortunately the front pages are not present so no date is visible. The reason I have shared this today is for the advert titled: Inferiority Complex. An interesting insight into the ‘Instant cure’ advertisements of the time!
Dear fellow bloggers, just a quick note to let you know I am now on Facebook as well as on my little blog! For all things vintage, colourful and just generally a little bit of everything that makes me happy you can find me at:
