I also had a bit of a binge on 1940's / 50's Stitchcraft magazines at Ebay. There was a lot more to choose from than I expected. I even recognised one (December 1957) from my mother's long-lost collection. I used to love flicking through these as a child! But she sent hers to landfill many years ago after the attic flooded. Sniffle. I managed to control myself and just buy a few, but I might have to go back for more. I really want to try knitting from the original patterns. Of course, I could just have bought Jane Waller's book, but I wanted to "discover" a pattern for myself, if you know what I mean.
Still unresolved: lipstick and glasses. I am seriously considering the purchase of some red lipstick, well reddish, oh my! Lipstick is a shocking enough concept for a scruff like me. And I really rather fancy some vintage-style glasses...!
How much of this will come to pass? Who knows - but is fun doing the "research"!
