silver bamboo, I LOVE your website!! the links are really amazing, and they inspired me a lot Cheesy.

Thanks, EO, but I can't claim that website. (I wish! GAH!) Nah, I found it when I was looking for those retro-lampshades myself. (I ordered 2, and they rock!) But I'm very, very glad you liked it.  Smiley

Retro Freak, I think there is a thread going on somewhere else about it but not sure if you have heard of this show on the Style Network called the Brini Maxwell show


Sounds like it's be just up your alley!! This is her site - if you have dialup, it takes a long time to load ...

The top-secret way... Join a group that has lots of older women in it (the altar guild, Hadassah, Kiwanis, whatever).  Then ask them if they would like to share any old patterns and craft books and such with you.  My grandma has things that are frankly incredible, including  a 1940's book on how to save fabric.  They suggest sewing projects like converting a man's suit into a women's skirted suit.  Whoa.
While you're at it learn all of their older woman secrets to long life and wisdom.

When in doubt, sauerkraut.
