I have decided to join in Tuesday's Treasures this week. It is being hosted by Melody .
Who has the lovely blog The House on the Side of the Hill.
Last week Mum dropped of a box of items. I was told I could keep them or pass them onto somebody or give them to a op-shop. No they were staying put right here at my home. The box has what we think might be a silk lining.

These old crochet books belonged to my Nana. I have quite a collection of her things now.

I loved reading the advertisements in the magazine, including this one which says the following
"Designed in Paris by Nina Ricci and Adelyn Adaption Selected by Mary Hordern Original Paris fashions used to be for the privilege of the very rich. Adelyn has made them available to everyone with the taste to appreciate them. From this lovely model from the Paris mannequin parades has been adapted by Adelyn for many leading fashion stores in all cities and towns throughout Australia.
Yours from 5 pounds.
I wonder how many people were able to afford the dress.
I hope you enjoyed my Tuesday's Treasure. Make sure you check out every one's Treasure over at Melody's blog.
