First of all, I want to thank all of you that submitted names for my layout title contest! I really appreciate your creativity and it was hard to choose just one title. But the one I chose was "Sugar and Spice" submitted by Tam from Art in Flight. Thanks Tam!!! Please e-mail me your address (justaddglitter at gmail dot com) and I'll get your prize out ASAP. :) Thanks again everyone!
Now, I wanted to share with you a major vintage find (at least for me, lol). On a past trip to one of my favorite vintage haunts, Kitsch-y Cool Vintage I noticed a scrapbook that was marked as being from the 1930s. Being that it was very delicate, I didn't look all that closely at it and left it where I found it.
Sometimes when I find something cool but it's out of my budget or I need to wait to get it for whatever reason, I go by my "Second Time Mine" rule. If it's there the next time I go, I assume that means God wants me to have it. lol So luck was with me when I went back to Kitsch-y Cool the other day as there is was on a shelf: my 1930s scrapbook.
I brought it home, sat down to really look at it and low and behold: it's filled to the brim with clippings of Hollywood celebrities from the 30s/40s. Amazing! There are so many pages with so many pictures, I decided to make a video flipping through it rather than take a picture of every page. :D Even with me talking and flipping as fast as I could, the video is still 4 minutes long (yikes) so please feel free to fast forward, mute my blah blah blah or what have you. lol
As you'll hear in the video, I need your help! I would love to preserve this somehow and I'm thinking my best bet it to "transplant" the images to a new chemical-free scrapbook. Once you see it, please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions! :D
I hope you enjoy seeing this treasure!
P.S.-I'm double posting this on my vintage blog, Circle 7-2099 so don't feel like you need to comment there if you're already commenting here. :D
