1970s Bohemian Crafting Inspiration

11 09 2010

This is my first Vintage Craft Book Review. I have a collection of vintage crafting books which range from DIY furniture, knitting, sewing, quilting and more. I never do these crafts, they are more eye-candy then anything.

Todays Book review : The Stitchery Idea Book by Beverly Rush Copyright 1974

This is actually my favorite book of all of them being that I lean towards 1970s crafts as my ideal.

I have included a few pictures of this 176 Page book which are an example of the tremendous amount of inspiration on a variety of crafts it gives. The book is an idea book not a ‘how-to’ that will inspire you in your crafting ventures.





Vintage Addiction & Hairstyles

16 12 2009

Hello, My Name is Lady Grunge (AKA Stacie) and I am an addict.

Now that my stock is pouring out of my closet…. as it always ends up doing… mostly because I like to try everything on and sometimes borrow pieces…. :::SIGH::: I have issues.

I discovered this because I am trying to organize it again and haven’t yet broken down yet to ask my husband (Mr. Organization) for his help.

The main problem is that I love to shop and get bored with the photographing and posting. This must change!

Okay, I have admitted I have a problem and that I need to change. I’ll skip the accountability part because I don’t want any of that. But I do have a great motivation to get everything going and all of my floating unposted stock going… a clean office! And once it’s clean then i will want to be in there! Once I want to be in there- I will sew! Once I sew then I can sell my adorable recycled skirts I’ve been playing around with and then…. SHOP MORE! BLOG MORE! POST GREAT IMAGES FROM Magazines that are lost under dresses and skirts! I will prevail over this addiction and become a contributing member to society by providing adorable vintage and handmade!

All of this will be powered by my new Natalie Imbruglia (circa 2006) Choppy Pixie HairCut courtesy of Nancy in Riverside (amazing stylist for only $35 who works with all types of hair and lengths and is stinkin adorable! Plus she loves vintage!!)

If you see new photos by Friday Afternoon you will know I am back on track if not, maybe next week =)

For now enjoy these cool hair styles that I have found places including my own magazines and would like to share
