I have been a collector since I was a child.... mostly aimless & pointless collections. Nothing very valuable, not too trendy, and rarely in mint condition. Just a plethora of "stuff" that I've had fun adding to through the years. If I have at least 3, I consider it a collection. I'll be posting a different collection daily, Monday through Friday, and spotlighting some other marvelous collections I've discovered on the weekends. I hope you stop by often!

COLLECTION #61: Vintage Arts & Crafts Magazines
Whenever I see vintage magazines about art or crafts, I love to pick them up, because the ideas and illustrations are always so fun & interesting. Here's a small cache of such magazines... one is from the 20s, 3 are from the 30s, 1 is from the 40s, and one is from the 50s. Each one is chock full of interesting ideas, illustrations and photos. I love them as much for their window into early to mid-20th century culture as for their actual arts or crafts.
I hope you enjoy seeing a few of the illustrations and projects featured in these magazines!
