March 1955 "Time Warp Wives Interview"

I am so busy today, rearranging my husbands new study and making room for the dinning room makeover. I will be back with a regular post tomorrow, I promise, but for now you can check out my Time Warp Wives interview by following the link. Just scroll down and it should be open to the page.

  1. Oh! I think they did a really nice job of portraying you and what you are doing with your life this year. I love your photos on their page, too!

    I guess I missed the part where you told everyone you were almost 6' tall! I would guess that it is hard to find pantyhose to fit you!

    Also, I would like to know where you got your rolled-up capri-length jeans. Finding jeans which fit my curves the right way is just always so depressing.

  2. I see they left in the bit about my having 'Gussie' which of course, is no longer true. I only had her a day a week anyway, and now it is just me, so I wonder if they can fix that bit. It is not as if it matters, but I guess I want credit for all the cleaning and cooking I do now!

  3. I also love Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House. Myrna Loy is so elegant, but funny. (bicker, bicker, bicker--lol)

    Since you mentioned manicures in the interview, I have a question for you...when I was a kid (in the 70's) my grandma would paint her nails, but always leave the half-moons unpainted. Looking at my nails now, I can hardly see my half-moons, because the cuticles are in the way. (I've let myself go, I guess!)

    Anyway, is the half-moon fashion a 50's thing? Have you run across this ever?

    Working hard at

  4. I wanted to ask you if you have a copy of Mrs Beeton's Household Management?

    I'm reading the e-book version, which might be something you want to avoid but I have a feeling that women from the 1950's would know of the Victorian housewife manual.

    The interview is great. I'm adding them to my favourites list.

    I hope you're having a good weekend!
