On yesterdays post Jee asked me if I had bought any books in Hay, silly question, of course I did. Although not as many as I had hoped. I'll show you what I got,
two Alice Thomas Ellis, I've already finished one.
some embroidery books. I'm not really impatient when it comes to sewing but I don't have a lot of free time and the things in this book are quick to make. The middle book has some quite big projects in, may have to wait a while to get round to some of those.
This was published in 1978 when Elizabeth Craig was 95 and still working. I've got lots of her books mostly dating from the 30's and 40's.
I only managed to find a couple of vintage books and one of those isn't that old. This one
which is from the 50's I think. At least I know how to do the washing now!
This one is a gem
the shop had it marked as being 50's but I'm pretty sure it's from the 30's. It's mostly recipes but it also has a section on modern! kitchens
and a bit on basic first aid
which looks pretty scary to me, the poor child looks really fed up.
So, there you go, my finds, as I said not as many as I had hoped but more than enough as far as husband is concerned.
Enjoy the coming week,
