Indeed it has. 8 months ago my life turned upside down – in those 8 months I’ve left my husband, changed my job and moved house. Three very stressful things to do and I decided to do them all in the same year!
That’s enough about my personal life – since doing that what have I been collecting? Well … I now have a ridiculous amount of paper ephemera to scan in. In my move my old scanner broke however my new scanner arrived yesterday so if you go to my Flickr photostream you’ll find a load of new images. These are only for personal use however they are fun to use!
These are my vintage cookery books – generally picked up on Deptford Market :) Now there’s a surprise. At the moment I’m only getting around to scanning in sample pages however there’s an interesting ‘Gas’ cookery book and a wicked 1970s WeightWatchers book. I LOVE the drawings in it.
Then there are my knitting patterns. Please don’t ask me why I collect knitting patterns because I don’t knit (to be fair – I don’t cook much either). However – how could you resist buying knitting patterns like this? LOOK AT HIM! he’s someone’s son and SOMEONE decided to put him on a knitting ad. He looks like a kid from Children of the Corn.
So if you click on that image you’ll find many more like this :) ENJOY!
