In the morning, before it really took hold, I entertained myself by browsing through my old scrapbooks. Back in my early twenties, I bought a lot of magazines.Rather than keep them all, I would cut out all the pictures and articles I liked and stick them in scrapbooks. I still do this now, but as we have very few magazines in the house ( C has a subscription to "Delicious" and Z has one for "Frankie") it takes about 5 years to fill one up.
It's fascinating to look back at these as they are a fairly accurate record of my interests over the years. Royalty, actors, movies, fashion, home design, gardens. There's a wedding dress phase, a baby phase and a home decorating phase. Interestingly, the same faces appear prominently over the thirty year span these scrapbooks cover.
