Doilies, Pipe Cleaners and Construction Paper!
Yesterday I decided to make a Valentine's Day card just like kids did in the 1950's. They might have used paste instead of Elmer's and they could have used real lace instead of doilies... but I'm sure they used metal scissors and construction paper!
I had a good time making a mess and by the time I finished decorating the front, inside and the back with about a pound of glitter, it was a hefty little thing! Then I had to decide who would get the card.
Since I was "Sweetheartless" on every single Valentine's Day... until I met my husband, I decided I would just pick a random person (out in the world) to receive my gift. It is February 13, so we shall see!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
