The first third of this book is recipes which I haven't looked to closely at yet, but the other 2/3 are on decorating and gift giving. One of the first projects to catch my eye was this wall decoration. Doesn't it remind you of the Alexander Henry fabric from last Christmas called Merry Modernica? You can check it out here (sorry, kind of a bizarre link, it was the only place I could find it! I know I have a yard of it hidden away somewhere though.) The only difference? The wall hanging pictured is 5-1/2 feet tall!!
And do these remind you of anything? Martha thinks she is sooo smart! :)
For all you patchwork lovers out there...how about a poncho? Or a nice vest for your man? A classic look, no? He, he, he...
Now, these I think look like fun. It is felt glued on painted plywood then sealed. Some very cute possibilities for kid room decorations.
Hoped you enjoyed this one! I'll be back tomorrow with more. Would you like hints on entertaining from the 50s & 60s or needlecraft gifts for the new baby from the 70s??
