50 things never to do !!!

{Click to enlarge.}

I'm a bit obsessed with my old encyclopedias right now. They are from the 1920s. I will tell you more about that on Thrifty Thursday, but for the moment, here's a page that always makes me smile for some reason - even though it all makes jolly good sense! You can use it as a backdrop in a collage if you like.

My particular favourites are...

Never pick your teeth with a pin

Never attempt to frighten a child, especially in the dark.

Never put crochet hooks or knitting needles in the pocket . (Whoops, think I might have done that)

Never stand still in an archway, or in any draughty place, when wet through. It is dangerous. Keep moving about.

....So...don't say I didn't warn you, OK?


  1. Hello Doda
    Thanks for popping by :-)
    The archway thingy is an interesting one - I wonder what that's all about??
    Fascinating, isn't it, to read all those guidance tips from yesteryear - of course ours will seem just as quaint in 90 years time!

  2. The last one really made me laugh. KEPP MOVING ABOUT!! What do they think will happen to you standing in that archway?!!!

    That's a hilarious list!! Thank you so much for sharing it.

    Oh, and also.....the cards in the post below are GORGEOUS!
