I can still remember the first book I read that was set in the 1940's and contained many details about daily life. I was mystified by the single women who had jobs at the "Button Counter" or were "Ribbon Girls." But of course as everyone sewed their own clothes back then, such jobs were common place, and while I dislike sewing, I love vintage dress patterns, and have a passion for collaging them into journals. These gems hail from a later date, 1967 through 1970, and were a gift from a lovely etsy street teammate named Hope (many thanks Hope!) Her store is loaded with vintage goodies, so check it out sometime!
