Another trip to the charity shop, another interesting buy. This time my purchase was £1.99 and from Oxfam. It is a book called The Book for the Home, which was published in 1963. The main reason i bought it was to get some inspiration/ideas for he tips pages in magazines. I have had a glance through it and looks like a bible for the proud house owner. With advice on everything from how to store your household linen to budgeting your weekly allowance. As i flick through the pages I am filled with a sadness, almost longing for that bygone era that I never knew but would love to have been apart of.
