Molly Dye's pineapple edging
Molly Dye’s Ideas Book: the things you’ll want to remember, Sydney 1960s
Although I couldn’t find a single recipe or household hint in this booklet that mentioned pineapple I did discover a “pretty” crochet “towel edging” of pineapples and some lovely illustrations which qualifies Molly Dye to appear in the blog!
And, the "new ABC" did include D – dried fruit; J – jam and M – marshmallows which the Pineapple Princesses frequently feature.
You can’t go past Molly Dye for advice on restoring a yellowed panama hat or suggestions for fete best-sellers but most of all I love the advice for housewives.
I wonder if it’s too late for me to start starching Les’s shirts? Anne.
