My friend’s collection of random 1950’s odds and ends.
Crunchy Catholic Momma
I find this blog so inspiring for both yarn and life, and I do wish my pictures turned out like hers.
Miss Maggie’s musings on living frugally, abundantly, and gluten free are inspirational. Currently on hiatus
A blog about needlework and inspiration, with some cooking thrown in
No Time For Flashcards
A blog about crafts for little kids, usually from things I would have lying around the house
The 1940s Experiment
I’ve linked up to the recipes page of Carolyn’s blog. She is documenting living on rations for one year in order to lose weight, and has reproduced a number of recipes complete with pictures. The recipes are not GF, but they are wartime recipes.
Useful Web Resources
Love Food Hate Waste
Britons waste almost 1/3 of the food they purchase each year, and this website is dedicated to combatting that habit. I don’t go here much, because I don’t waste food and rarely have a leftover problem, but the recipes are useful, as are the tips.
Excellent explanations and tutorials for sewing and needlework. This sight is also a goldmine of ideas and patterns for sewing, knitting, crochet, and a smattering of other things.
Quite possibly the best and most comprehensive site I’ve seen on sewing information. I keep waiting to be charged for something, but haven’t yet. I think the site is supported by other ventures, as it isn’t cluttered with advertisements and the like.
The HillBilly Housewife
This was originally Miss Maggie’s site, but now belongs to someone else. It is still a wonderful resource for basic frugal recipes and money saving ideas. It also has a $45 weekly menu, which is detailed and very useful.
The Midnight Watch
The man who runs this site is a history teacher and has collected lots of British and other WWII things. It’s fun to look through, especially the rationing/kitchen front things
