Christoph and I went out this afternoon in search of the elusive plates we need for our wedding. Although unsuccessful in finding any that we wanted, I spotted this "The Complete Home Handywoman" book from 1977, which I thought was totally fabulous, even if just for checking out the amazing decors of the late 70s!
It really goes through everything from, amongst many other things, how to plan the lighting in your house, tiling, hang wallpaper, upholstery and plumbing!
The really cute thing about it, is the little inscription inside on the first page, obviously from a mother to her daughter as a Christmas present. I love little finding little human stories in random objects
