And with a title like that, I had to include this straight up :-)
Even I can't believe I still had this. Disco Dots.
For some reason I seemed to had always been losing one earring .....what did I get up to as a teenager!
A dreadful collection, including the feather earrings, which became more popular in the 80's thanks to Adam Ant, but we were ahead of our time wearing them lol. The beautiful 9ct gold crosses I've now rescued and bought forward to keep in the present day with me.
At the tender age of 15, a boy bought this fan necklace for me! I loved it and wore it to death, until the little tassel at the bottom fell off.
I kept it :-).
The doll must have been given to me late 60's or very early 70's. I can't remember much about it, when or who gave it to me, but I could never part with it. Her face is typical of the 70's, with that "doll face look" appearing on posters, make up ads, and early anime.
She still looks good for her age!
Can't forget the quintessential 70's craft books. Running full speed from the 60's, the 70's came with a freedom from previous conventions, not only in values, music and fashion, but also in home decor and it was here, that craft became interesting and imaginative.
It was an amazing time to be a craftsperson, and as much as we laugh (me included) at some of the things we wore and what we put in our homes, we can always learn and recreate from the past.
And of course some music, and the "70's Chick" Tea Cosy to finish..... come on I had to throw in a Tea Cosy that's what I do!
