HOLLY HOBBIE AND FRIENDS
As a child of the 1970s, images like these covered my world. I loved Holly Hobbie, Victoria Plum, Strawberry Shortcake and the sweet characters of Beautiful Sunday and Petticoats and Pantaloons. I had a small collection of Beautiful Sunday stationery and my Mum made me a dress from Holly Hobbie fabric. Treasures I wish I still had.
I recently discovered hundreds of these nostalgic images on Pinterest reigniting my love! I have a rather modest collection (see below), all of which came from local charity shops. You can buy plenty of these pretties on eBay and Etsy but I prefer to find them locally. I guess it’s like collecting vintage in a vintage way!
