Haven’t seen this thread before and enjoying a wee read. Had the strangest sensation looking at the sheets of scraps posted….Ah wis a wee lassie hame fae jist hivin’ bought a new sheet at Greta Brown's Newsagent shoap in Kent Road….a rare and big deal tae me (an’ ma Mammy!)…an’ Ah felt the same feelin’ Ah hid back then….no’ quite awe but sumfim close tae it....wonder, mebbe. Felt gey weird so it did. Must go and look oot my scrap book. It came to Canada wi’ me. Ah know where it is…in a box in my storage area, aka Glory Hole aka Midden aka Fibber McGee’s closet….but findin’ it’ll be something else. Might be a while afore Ah get back in here!

Ah hiv some treasures....old-fashioned pre-war lovelies gied tae me by ma mammy's pal lo these many moons ago!

Sorry to say I dont have any scraps. They used to be such a big part on my childhood. Dont know what ever happened to my collection.Many a happy hour was spent on the stair head swapping scraps. Two or three of us would gather in the close and how happy we were then, such simple pleasures.

Can you believe I just gave my 25 year old niece my old sweetie box full of scraps, some which belonged to my Mum from the 1900s? She was fascinated with them.

Well that brought back some happy memories, even sitting on the cauld stairs swapping.
Simple pleasures right enough. Some of the newer ones I don't remember but the cherubs on the clouds were some of my favourites. They go back nearly 70years I would think 'cos it's that long since I was a wee lassie.

There has been a large revival of "Scrapbooking" here in Australia. I am aware of this because my wife is into all sorts of traditional arts and crafts, decorative sewing, jewellery making and teaching these skills to others. There are many and varied "traditional crafts" available in our not so small country town.

Incidentally my wife is from a much smaller Canadian country town where in the time of her child hood traditional crafts were what they lived by. We lived and worked most of our lives in Melbourne and although it is a wonderful city there was not the diversity of interests that occur in the country. Then again in the city the distractions are many.
