A few days ago I came home to a mysterious package from my lovely friend Heli. Inside, for my birthday, was this marvelous book!
I seriously felt like hollering and jumping up and down. I have always wanted a book like this! Unfortunately, I cannot ever seem to find such delightful books here in America. So many Americans seem too concerned with the up-and-coming to appreciate elegant looks of days gone by. Perhaps I should move to Europe. ;D
It makes me want to have another 1930s-themed party!
It is full of real newspaper clippings from a 1930s English newspaper, the Daily Mail. It has recipes, makeup and beauty advice, helpful household hints, and some exercises.
I'll have to include more about it in a later post, as this is all I have time for now!
