Golden Hands



















































I bought a couple of great 70s craft books from a series called 'Golden Hands' and above are some scans of the brilliant photographs inside. What I'm not showing you are hundreds of step by step instructions on how to do useful things like crochet your own watch band, sew a toy pig, knit a pair of bloomers, embroider a duck on a table cloth... life skills really.

  1. My boyfriend's mum recently gave me her entire collection of Golden Hands. I don't even know what to do with them all, they don't even fit in my apartment! Not sure I will ever actually try one of the projects but I like them for the photos.

  2. Hi Minna! It's Michal. I love love the light on the boy's hands in the last picture, the way it highlights the proximity to the girl's hair.. it reminds me about your post about getting close to something without touching it..I love pictures with that kind of lighting. Anyways,loving your posts! xx

  4. Josephine I'm so jealous!! At the Op shop I got them from there were heaps of them but I only bought two, I SO wish I got the rest now. There are so many good pictures. I would never attempt to make any of the things really, I don't have the patience. my friend is going to though, it's very exciting!

    HEY MICHAL!! hooray! How are you? This probably isn't the place for a conversation but thanks for your comment on my post, the proximity of the guys hand to the girls hair is exactly what I liked about the picture too, as well as her blue jumper. At first I thought he was holding her hair.. alas not but yes the touching without touching is there!!! XOXOXOX Hope you're well XO Minna
