Macramé Hangers for Small Spaces
Craft Course Publishers, Inc.
Submission: I found this crafty little book hiding in our stacks recently. My family’s first apartment in the 80’s had the same wallpaper as page 13.
Holly: You know, the house I grew up in had similar wallpaper in our kitchen! We also had the macrame hanger.
Mary: I got a similar wall hanging (pg. 7) for a wedding present. I re-gifted it to a friend, and she did similar. I am sure it is in a landfill, where it belongs.
Oh, the accent mark after the “e” instead of above it is driving me nuts!
That Beaux Arts title font they used (cf. signs for the “Metropolitaine” subway stations in Paris) _definitely_ had a capital-E-with-acute (or grave) in it somehwere.
Macrame is actually making a comeback! I work at a yarn store, and we are starting to get requests for “macrame yarn”. Guess we should be stocking up on jute.
Ack, cringe, EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW at macrame making a comeback! As a Goth married to a Goth fashionista, that nasty stuff will never be allowed in our apartment.
People could make macramé jute hairshirts! to wear under their regular clothing.
I actually have two macrame (sorry, DNN, I can’t do the accent ague, but I will spare you the kludge of an apostrophe) things. A plant hanger with a dead plant in it, made by a cousin of the ex, and a wall piece made by my friend in about 1971.
Now that this post has brought my attention to them, maybe I will send them where they ought to go… The dead plant one, anyway, for sure.
If that’s a sliver of page 13 in the photo, all I can say is… well, you lived with that and it didn’t drive you batty?!
Man this stuff was all you could find at the good wills back a few years ago. Everyone cleaned them out!
@Mary: I got page 12 for a wedding present. It is indeed in a landfill.
I love how *neither* the title/headline font *nor* the text body font have an accent and they just put it after the “e”.
