Re-vamping our reallllly ugly Salvo living room table with mint green paint and a sort of a polka dotted collage-y to-do. I’m using an old, beat up 1973 Seventeen magazine that is making me way too happy. In 1973, Seventeen was all sewing patterns, meatloaf recipes, how to become a stewardess, and “when are you going to get married, already?”

This is a work in progress. Pics when I’m done, promise!

I’m also giving this a good, hard listen:

Look at me! I'm pretending to be on vacation.

Love and Libraries and Less-Ugly Tables, Ingrid

    That’s really interesting, about what old Seventeen magazines used to be. I love looking at things like that, seeing how times have changed. Makes me wish I could find some older teen magazines like that for myself!
