’10 Golden Rules’ for looking after War Time Stockings – vintage instructions

I bought some 1940s deadstock stockings for my Etsy store the other week and included were the original ‘care instructions’. Here is a close up of the ’10 Golden Rules’ for looking after your War Time stockings. Very useful for those of us that collect and wear vintage lingerie. Enjoy 🙂

 

RIP Patty Andrews, 1918 – 2013

Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of swing-era vocal group the Andrews Sisters (and the center sister in the photo below), died today of natural causes. She was 94. A beautiful lady with a golden voice.

‘Bounce Me Brother With a Solid Four’ will always be my fav of their songs. Thought I’d post the clip here. Not the mention that we get to see Jewel McGowan and Dean Collins dance. 🙂

From the late Thirties through the Forties, the Andrews Sisters produced one hit record after another. Patty Andrews is in the centre
