Post # 99 1/2

I know, I know I am cheating a bit~ BUT since this is going to be a short post I thought I could count it as HALF-A-POST, LOL!

Yesterday I got up really early and started working~ to heck with the mounds of dirty laundry and dishwasher that needs emptied~ new crafty junk finds were calling my name~ so when duty calls I did what any die-hard crafter would do - asked my husband to throw in a couple loads of laundry and plugged in my glue gun~LOL!

Since we are kind of major- Holiday-less right now I thought I would make some Birthday tag sets for my etsy shop!

I got some neat new books at the flea market on Saturday so I got busy scanning!
These "women's work" images came from a 1943 elementary school text book called Look and Learn~ it is FULL of great images I am so excited~ and the weird thing is I was showing my mom some of my finds yesterday and she said she remembers having that book in school as a child~ which made it even more special!

These kitschy vintage ladies came from a 1964 Spinnerin knitting pattern magazine! Such a great find! I love these ladies! The magazine had great names for the sweater patterns like "Young and Important", "Soaring Success"(of course this was for a man's sweater pattern), and "Certain Dignity". What young fashionista wouldn't want to knit herself a hot little sweater from a pattern called "Young and Important"???? This was the Stitch 'n' Bitch of its time!

Coming Soon:
My 100th post check back this week!
