I remember my mum had a drawer full of Australian Home Journals when I was a kid and she'd get them out from time to time and go through them to see what she could make. The other day my friend Janet from Gottabee Country at Abbie Lane in Highfields gave me this one from August 1950. Janet had rescued it from her MIL's possessions after cleaning out some of her things. What a treasure and many thanks to Janet. By the way if you're unable to get to Highfields to visit Gottabee Country (my absolutely favourite shop) click on the link and take a visit through their online store.
