I found this great blog Rhinestones and Telephones and fell in love with the idea of Thrift 365 and added it as a button. The idea would feel very much like living in the 1940's - 50's with the amount of rationing still going on back then in Australia.
Did you know that the only jewellery allowed to be made in Australia during WWII was plain wedding bands. As I'm not a jewellery person this wouldn't have bothered me.
The only issue for us will be the new 1950's kitchen going in later this year. I can't find a second-hand one in good nick and close, so it has to be custom made.
