you know that song "I've Been Everywhere Man"*, well I could sing my own tea towel version. It would go a little something like this:
"dishes I've dried my share man, I've dried everywhere..."
(unfortunately that's all I've got for you at the moment. writers block - sorry)
and now, thanks to my dearest bloggy friend Nadine (a.k.a. Woolfy) I can add not one, but two beautiful vintage t.ts. all the way from Belgium to my collection. Feast your eyes...
In 1978: I read Dolly Magazine. Religiously. Misty was my favourite comic - oh how I loved my black cat charm bracelet! (free with issue three, I think...) I went to the flicks (more than once!) to see Grease. I had a huge crush on Leif Garrett, and The Sullivans was my favourite t.v. show.
I also had a t.shirt with the slogan Kiss Me printed on it. It was purple and I was terrified to wear it in public. I honestly thought a stranger (read pimply, Dragstar riding teen) would see those words as an invitation to plant one on me! I know, how sad is that? I remember wishing I had my sister's tee instead. Hers was green and read LOVE. I would've felt much safer wearing that one. Loser!
1978 was a pretty good year actually, I was a bit of a dag, but I survived. Pity I haven't aged as well as these gorgeous tea towels. I've probably got more memories than them though - they look as though they dried as many dishes as I kissed boys!
And just in case, you feel the need, here's Lucky
