Blast from the past

Caroline and I were out promoting the coming Bridport Rag Market yesterday in the Wintery showers and I came upon these at one of the second hand warehouses. I have read that these were a monthly companion to Arthur Mee's Children's Newspaper and continuing his children's Encyclopedia. He was prolific in his writings.
They seem to me slightly strange as a child's magazine, quite serious and adult interspersed with items clearly for the very young and lots of interesting advertisements for the mums. I have 11 from 1921 to one in 1930 including the first Christmas issue.
I find old magazines fascinating , a trip to the past and the Art Work especially for the old advertising just brilliant

In The Print

Not sure I am meant to do this! but they did send me the pictures of the photoshoot
The March edition of Homes and Antiques out today or at least mine arrived to my sick bed this morning!
needless to say I am thrilled to be in it in the good company of several other quilt dealers.
