Wonderful 50s Book & 1st Youtube Video

Check me out, my first Youtube video!


I found this wonderful book from Life Magazine in a bag of old recipe books purchased for 20p at a boot sale. It's got some amazing insights into the 50s Hollywood-luxe lifestyle, as well as some fabulous recipes. And the outfits are to die for...

Please excuse my hideous Lahndan accent.

  3. I really enjoyed that, great vid! You sound like Adele, which is no bad thing. I hate my voice played back, I sound posh and to my mind quite unlike my real self. I love the inside cover graphic, it would make brilliant kitchen curtains.

  5. This is a great idea Perdita and incidentally I liked the sound of your voice. You certainly got a bargain there and I'm chuffed that you shared it with us in this way.
