Vintage crafting

By Christy - November 12, 2008

I love vintage Better Homes and Garden books especially this crafts and recipes book which is just brimming with bright, homespun ideas.  I think I'm gonna turn back the clock this year, craftily speaking. Darn, I miss the 80's.

  1. I have this book too! And the "American Christmas Crafts and foods" as well. They are awesome!

  2. Thank you for your thoughts on Sara. She is greatly missed! I would love to know what you decide to do out of your book!

    Take care!

  3. Where did you find this, wonderful. I think sometimes I am too close to the 80's to appreciate them, but the 70's all the way. I guess that means I am at least one decade older than you :)))

  4. oh i find books like that at thrift stores all the time! i should get them next time!

  5. i think my mom has that book! i love looking at that stuff and putting a modern spin on it.

  6. Hi Christy, I've missed a lot lately on your lovely blog. Haven't had much time for blogging. :/ Your cup cake recipes sounds grat and the holiday craftings are so inspiring.

    And the book looks nice too! But missing the 80s - I don't know. ;)

    Have a nice friday!

  7. I'm so glad I visited this post - it's great that you link to old ones in newer posts. I, too, miss the '80's in many ways, chuckle chuckle, we aren't that old, but already looking back with a sentimental sigh :)
    Wish we could share a cuppa and craft away to such books as this one!


Your comment is very much appreciated. Thank you so much!
