The Australian Womens Weekly Retro Cookbook

I got this great cookbook for Christmas. It is such a beautiful, beautiful book. If you are into vintage kitchenalia it is so worth buying. They have designed this cookbook so well the pages just pop out at you, and it so bright and colourful. I love it!

It also includes a number of pages from old Womens Weeklys to show you what they were like.

Scruffs Pooped!

Poor Scruff had a big night partying!

Happy new year everyone!

Did you ever see an elephant fly?

How amazing is this MCP Dumbo. I love him, he is so vibrant and colourful. 

Modern Ceramics Products (MCP) (located in Marrickville NSW) won the licence to manufacture Disney characters in the 1950's. They produced figurines from the popular Disney movies of the time. Most of the figurines were not stamped but had a MCP sticker attached which usually wore off over time. The figurines were well glazed and decorated and they are now highly sought after by Disney collectors world wide. This blog ( features many of the MCP Disney range and well as other Disney manufacturers of the time. 

This guy and his cute little friend Thumper will be added to the website shortly.

Stanley Kubrick's 1940s photos
