1940’s Project

Day one in Florida and I’ve already been dragging the antique stores. For what it’s worth, Homer Helter’s Antique and Millitary Mall in Naples is great.  I wish I could go back!  I found two cookbooks and some buttons, and one of the cookbooks has a hidden gem that has given me an idea…

Inside one of the cookbooks has a wartime guide for cooking and I want to try it out.  And by try it out, I mean surprise my husband with pig knuckles for dinner some night.  Also, it’s an excuse to make an era appropriate dress.  And apron.  And maybe buy some new shoes.  All in the spirit of conserving for the war effort, of course!

    Sounds like a plan. That generation ate great. I wish I still had my mother’s old cookbook.

        Aww!! 😀 You make so many cool things, it’s impossible for me NOT to be excited about them! The amazing garments and artwork you create is also hugely creatively inspiring to me and helps push me further along – not in a competitive way, but just because I’m so inspired but what you do! 🙂
