The other day I 'won' (actually paid a fair bit of money for) a beautiful piece of history on eBay, which turned out to be even better in the flesh than I could ever have hoped for, considering its 73 years. Home Notes (June 19, 1937) – a weekly women's magazine back in the day - is in excellent condition and best of all...squeeeaaalll...it came with the pattern pieces and instructions for the four dresses on the front cover! Oh, and did I mention that it's my size too!?!
I've not yet had the time to read it cover-to-cover, but I've posted some more pictures below to try and give you a taste of it's content, which is filled with: fashion tips, recipes, hilarious adverts, cute anecdotes, romantic fiction and a even a racy problem page dealing with how parents should answer their children's questions about sex.
I'm seriously in love with this little treasure. Even though it may not be a rare piece as such, it feels very special to me.
