I'm sharing a Wonderful Book that our dear friend Billretirecoll sent me last week. It's a compilation Jan-June 1863 from editor Sarah Hale's Godey's magazine 1830s-1870's. The book is 7x9" bound in black. This was so fun to go through and I still haven't finished!!. It is full of neat engravings, recipes, songs, sewing instructions, fashions and topical articles, such as "widow".... which was probably hard to read in 1863. Sarah Hale was a writer, editor and activist. AND, most important to me she wrote "Mary Had A Little Lamb".
I'm also sharing celluloid "glove stretchers"? 8" long from Bill too. Lovely and work great to hold pages down for the photograph. I love vintage fashion and sewing as he knew. He also sent a 1940's book that I need to research before sharing.
Bill, thank you so much for these wonderful gifts. Your friend - no1Mary
