Vintage Good Housekeeping book February 9, 2010

I found this 1960s Good Housekeeping book recently in a charity shop, for the princely sum of £4. It’s a domestic encyclopedia, explaining all about how to run your home. Written in the late 1960s and updated in 1970, it has a lovely yellow cover with pretty gold lettering – and so once I’ve finished leafing through it, it will have pride of place on the shelves in our living room.

The pictures are very interesting – the two suggestions shown for decorating a living room here both look like places I’d want to live in.
