Today I wanted to share with you a wonderful new book!
It's called, Have Yourself A Very Vintage Christmas.
It's by Susan Waggoner, who has published several wonderful books about the history of Christmas. This one is more geared toward crafting.
She starts with the 1920's and goes through the 60's talking about what colors an style were popular at the time. She also shares simple craft projects.
I am about half way through reading this book. I thought it was very interesting to read that in the majority of the 1920's, poinsettias were not decorated with as there was a rumour that it was poisonous and that a child had died from eating a leaf. It was later proved untrue, although it is poisonous to pets.
There is even a small section of recipes as well as several pages at the back of vintage Christmas images to scan and print.
I could not find it a my local book store, so I purchased it on amazon.
