Beware the Pretty Pins

Like many other Crafters and Costumer, I can be found wasting time on Pinterest. It is a time suck to some and an inspiration to others. Depending on who and which boards you choose to follow you may find it a lot like an average "woman's magazine." With weight-loss tips, cake and cookie recipes, household cleaning tips and crafts for children. But unlike a magazine, you can choose which boards to follow so you can choose not to see those things if you want.

Just the other day I found something I didn't even know I was looking for.

I thought it was so interesting, that I have decided to share.
I have been going through online collections of Victorian magazines and came across this Der Bazar cover

Pretty funny looking huh? Well yesterday I found on Pinterest a surviving example that shows that yes somebody actually did make these!

even more hideous in real life! If only they had Regretsy in Victorian times!

Anyways you can take a look at my Pinterest boards, maybe you will find something you didn't know you were looking for!
