A little piece of history - saved!

The other day I was in the right place at the right time.  Rarely does that happen for me so this time I was excited!  

Being in the right place at the right time meant that I was able to save a box of magazines from being thrown out.  Not just any magazines though, these are special!

.....Australian Home Journal 1958-1960, Australian Women's Weekly 1970's, New Idea 1970's,  Women's World 1970's plus a whole lot from the early eighties (complete with Lady Di and Fergie on the covers)...all in fairly good condition considering where they had been stored (you don't want to know!).
Pages of pattern previews....and the Australian Home Journal comes with 3 (yes, 3!) FREE patterns!!!

Just a quick flick through a few on the top of the pile and I knew they had to come home with me!  

It's interesting to see that while the wording may have changed, the ideas behind marketing to women hasn't!

I'm like a kid in a candy shop - I don't know where to start!!!

This On My Mind photo feature is lead by Rhonda at Down-to-Earth that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to sharing our lives through photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships.


  1. OH how fun! I love finds like that!

  2. WHAT A GREAT and RARE Find!!! They're would be some very interesting articles, pictures, adverts etc, in those books...They are certainly keepers! I can just imagine the smile on your face when you found them. ENJOY!

  3. Talk about a time tunnel, well done.

  4. What a truly awesome save! How much fun for you!
