The Winter Holidays will be upon us before you know it

These 4 are just a sample of what you can find in the Needlecraft pages at cemetarian

A Day in the Life of a Mad Men Era Teen - Friday

Dear Diary, It's midnight and the one time Mama and Daddy let me stay out past my 10:00 curfew. After the Football game they let me go with Bobby and Linda and Billy to the Victory Dance and I'm glad our team won so I didn't waste dressing up in my new gingham dress with the big round collar. Bobby got mad when he found out I like the new Crystals song He's a Rebel
hehehe, if only he knew why I like that song so much.

A Day in the Life of a Mad Men Era Teen - Thursday

Dear Diary, I forgot that we were having a Sock Hop in the Gym after school today. Thank goodness I was wearing my pleated dress and my loafers. And of course they played the new Marcie Blane song Bobby's Girl which Bobby asked me to dance to. He's so dreamy.

A Day in the Life of a Mad Men Era Teen - Wednesday

Dear Diary, not much happened at school today just the same ole things. But I rushed home to get my homework done cause it's Weds night and Bobby just might come by to take me to get a Coke. I've got my hair brushed and it's not too bad, not quite as good as it was Monday. I sure wish Mama would let me wash it more than once a week. But she won't so I just do what I can with it and hope for the best. After I got my chores and homework done, I put on the pants, blouse and little cropped top that's part of the new outfit that Mama had made for me to start school in. This is about the only time I get to wear pants ......... hehehe.....if Bobby comes by he'll "catch me in my slacks" and Mama won't make me change clothes. She'll just let me go. Daddy will frown, but he'll get over it. I sure do like wearing pants instead of skirts and those icky stockings.

A Day in the Life of a Mad Men Era Teen - Tuesday

Dear Diary, After school today was Horizon Club and we had fun. Since our group has moved up and become the Elders, we are trying to teach the younger Camp Fire Girls some of the things they have to look forward to at camp next summer. Linda and I swapped sweaters this afternoon. Her pink one goes better with my new grey and white dress with the dickey and my grey sweater looks better with that pretty pink shirtwaist her Mom made last spring.

A Day in the Life of a Mad Men Era Teen - Monday

Dear Diary, I'm really sleepy tonight. I rolled my hair again last night and didn't get a wink of sleep, cause these rollers kept pokin' me in the head. But my hair sure looked good this morning when met Bobby in the bus parking lot so he could walk me to my first class. I hope he noticed how shinny and curly it was. Mama had my dress made last week and Bobby said it brings out the blue in my eyes and I like the way it looks with my new black suede flats. If I could just wear it with socks and penny loafers instead, I'd be really happy. These garters and stockings are real hard to handle after PE. I never seem to get them back on just right. But Mama says, that's the price we girls pay for wanting to look pretty. But she doesn't have to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to class every hour. At least I've got Bobby to carry my books.

A Day in the Life of a Mad Men Era Teen - Sunday

Dear Diary, Church was good this morning. Joyce and I sat on the back pew and watched all the boys down front. I wore my dress and matching coat with that cute little roller hat. It mashed my hair down but I managed to get it sprayed and fluffed before Joyce and I went skating. I wore my new pleated dress to the Skating rink because it's so easy to skate in and looks good with my skates. My pink pom poms contrast nicely with the grey of the dress since Mama had the collar made in pink. I sure wish Bobby skated, but he just doesn't like to go to the Rink. But I met the cutest guy and we skated all the couples skates. I really like Bobby Vinton's new song, Roses are Red but the really fun one is to click and clack to The Wanderer by Dion...........he's so dreamy..................
