A nifty little find...

Whilst on a quick-before-the-shops-close little trip to buy baking supplies, I happened upon this little beauty in the most unlikely of places.

This is a reprint of a 1944 Good Housekeeping guide, giving advice to newlywed women, about to embark on a move across the oceans to join their new in-laws. This includes sections such as 'Making friends in a small town', 'Homemaking', 'American humour' and even a glossary of English words and phrases and their American  equivalents. It also includes poems, stories and excerpts from wartime editions of Good Housekeeping.

(Yep, you heard me right)

  4. Oh wow- poundland!?! I must check it out.

  5. That sounds like a cool, possibly funny read.


Please leave me a comment, I'd love to hear what you beauties think.
