How to make your Marriage Exciting
Hunter and Hunter
1972

Doesn’t everyone want an exciting marriage?

The author asserts that TOTAL honesty is the key for an exiting and successful marriage. As I celebrate 35 years of marriage this month, I am here to tell you denial and lying is a much better strategy.

“Honey, that pocket protector does look cool!”

“I really do think this is the year for the Detroit Lions”

“Ice cream is healthy. It’s made with milk.”

Groovy Crafts for the Fulfilled Woman

Crafts for Fun and Profit
Van Zandt
1972

This series is called Women Alive. We already posted the book that helps you figure out your man. After you figure out your man, you can sit down and make some lovely crafts.

I think I really need this whole series.

McCall’s Annual of Creative Handcrafts
Comstock, ed.
1970

I have no idea what is going on with the “vest”/jewelry thing paired with the skirt.

I might be inspired to breakout my crafting supplies and watch re-runs of the Brady Bunch.
