Vintage Things

Aren't these just the sweetest little crochet and knitting booklets? My Mother in Law gave them to my oldest daughter who can do both crafts. I can do neither. I just love the sweet photos and graphics. Simpler times don't you think? And 29 cents. What a bargain.

 Had one of those ponchos in the seventies complete with the pom poms.

This one is my favorite for the graphics. The date inside is 1959.

Heck I like this bag now.

Okay this reminds me of "Happy Days."

  1. It is always fun to see thins from the past. At my age, it brings back a lot of memories.

  2. The books ARE wonderful! I actually have the one that your last two photos came from. I think mine may be a revised version because that doesn't look like my cover. But the two pics are identical to the ones in mine. I've had the book for years and refer to it often to refresh my memory on crochet, knitting, and embroidery stitches.
