Australian Home Journals 1948 and 1949

I was looking for something in my sewing room and came across these gems....a couple of mags from 1948/49 - and no I didn't buy them new .... (Almost could have tho!)



the pattern for the "gay,novel shoe bags" caught my eye........



Along with the pattern for summer gloves........

.
And last (but by no means least!) this advert featuring a Mrs D........, "typical Australian mother" (and goes on to give a height and weight of the said "typical Australian mother").....with a chart of what you should weigh...and the heading of course says....."her rheumatism goes as she loses ugly fat"......these capsules pretty much cured everything! Wonder why they aren't around today...or maybe they are in a different form.......!

There are some cute knitting patterns for a tea cosy, toy rabbit.....along with an ad for "Sun-glo Shrinkproof Knitting Wool" which goes on to say....."there isn't a man in a million who won't fall head-over-heels for one of the new Sun-glo Men's Wear designs...."

On that note......time I was getting ready for a day of stitching with the girls.....haven't had the house all to myself this morning ...... Mark (DS2) was up and about early..........on a weekend.....couldn't be for any other reason than......a football game! )(well a trial game anyway) Yes, it's back - the footy season!

Enjoy your day................................ Lorraine
