At the very end of my bookshelf, sit a few old magazines.
I have to say that these are the only ones which I kept from yonks ago (1970s) and I now wish I'd not been so ruthless with the others.
'Family Circle' was quite a popular mag at the time and one particular Christmas they produced this one which had oodles of ideas for children's crafts and thus my first ever classroom as a teacher, (in a place called Lightwater, Surrey,) was adorned with all these lovely decorations which, at the time, looked so modern and cool..yet simple! I like simple and you can build on simple ideas, improvise etc.
Talking of simple, on Tuesday we did our usual craft morning. On offer was a good variety of materials, felt, papers, card etc. We had to make napkin rings... and although I was worn out from the weekend's events, I worked happily and I worked 'simple'!!
Meanwhile ..I have put some items for sale..here in 'Vintage Snippets':
And now I am off on a train... to my favourite place...with my camera !!
Hope your day is as lovely as I know mine will be;-)
P.S. For all those lovely people who keep asking about Nich..his new blog is here below and you can now read about his European travels, starting with Amsterdam !!!
