Reading from the 1960's

Happy Sunday all! I hope that everyone's weekend was fantastic! I was a conference this week about multiculturalism, which is the reason of my lack of posting.

This week I got information directly from two graduate school while I was in Harrisburg on Tuesday and when I was at Millersville University this past weekend. And let me tell you, that is FREAKING ME OUT! I can't believe that after this semester, I will be half way through my college education. And then grad school/the real world is going to happen. That gives me such a queasy feeling.

Okay, moving on to a topic that doesn't making me feel like throwing up. Lately, I acquired two books from the 1960s! Aren't they both really awesome? I can't wait to incorporate them into my room decorations this summer.

This book is called "Meet John F. Kennedy" and was published in 1965. I absolutely adore the Kennedy's and this little kids book is just so very adorable.

I got this book recently at an indoor yard sale and was so very excited about it! I was even more excited when the lady said the price was only 25 cents!

If you would like your own copy, there are a couple on Etsy.

Next is a McCall's Pattern Fashions magazine from Spring of 1969. My lovely cousin, who is also an avid thrifter, gave it to me! Some of the outfits/ads are a little bit silly, but a lot of them are oh-so-cute!

Because who wouldn't want a shirt to match their curtains and bed spread?

This black and white dress is my absolute favorite!  

If you are interested in getting one for yourself, Etsy has one from '71.

I might tear apart the magazine and frame some of them, but I'm not sure yet. If you have any ideas, let me know!

Have a great Sunday night everyone and I hope that you are spending it a lot better than I am, which means that you won't be studying! :)

Oh my gosh this so so cool. I always look for old books but can never seem to find good ones. How fun!

There was a beauty guru on youtube who took magazine pages like that, got a clear glass piece the same size as her desk, and slid the pages inbetween for inspiration when she was getting ready. Then you could also change them up if you wish and no commitment. :)

Oh making framed pictures from these vintage books is a GREAT idea!
