Australian Home Journal-October 1956

Fabulous Frocks Friday July 26th 2013

This edition of Fabulous Frocks Friday is proudly bought to you by the cover ladies and girls of Australian Home Journal. Who would have though those Aussies were so fashionable back then? Information about this publication is hard to find. From the little scraps around the internet, I can deduce that Australian Home Journal began […]

Jones Beach, NY 1955

Summer Holidays

With temperatures here soaring to over 90 degrees (about 33 degrees Celsius for everyone else using the ‘proper’ system) for the next 4 days or so, I have summer on the brain. Back home, we say “Summer Holidays” although the correct American vernacular is “Summer Vacation.” I’m missing the Aussie east coast beaches terribly, namely Bondi, Bronte and Clovelly. […]

Summer Time in 1954

It’s finally Summer time here and I thought I would kick off aprés Memorial Day long weekend (fun fact: this US holiday marks the start of the Summer vacation period) with a post of little girls having a swell time at Atlantic Beach FL in 1954. I hope these two are still the best of […]

Kitty Babies

I have two kitty babies that are affectionately known as Snickie Snoo and Buddha Bear – not their official vet names. That would be Snickers Herbert and Elphaba Rose. A little more interesting than the standard Fluffy or Fred don’t you think? Kitty babies existed in vintage times and there is photographic evidence to prove […]

Lights…models…guest list? Just do your best, darling

It’s Fashion Week Fall 2013 in NYC right now so I thought this post was very fitting. Did you recognise the above quote? It’s from a episode of Absolutely Fabulous in 1992. Although I was a little young to enjoy Eddie and Patsy’s antics and tomfoolery this certainly sums up these Life Magazine photos by […]
