A week of Vintage Australiana.....


its a week of 'Vintage Australiana' over at Pips with guest blogger Gemma!
I might have a few things to share this week too!

Lets start with some vintage inspired 'Outback chic'...a cute layout from Australian Marie Claire

and some of my favourite Australian films:
'Careful He Might hear you', well 1983 is not really considered vintage but this film set in Sydney during the depression, always makes me cry...if you havnt seen it, go get it on DVD....its lovely!

and does anyone else remember Smiley (1956) the cute but cheeky country boy who gets up to lots of Mischief...

I also had to mention the TV series
'The Sullivans'...my grandmother who hardly speaks a word of english was addicted to this drama....we loved 'The Sullivans' in our home!!

  4. magazines from other places are always better than American magazines, at least, I feel that way. I will have to check out the movies you mentioned! Thanks for sharing them!!

  5. Great post, A! Growing up in England, my first exposure to Australia was The Sullivans. I loved being off school sick because I got to watch it, Kitty was my heroine, and I remember I was in sixth form when Grace Sullivan died and we all cried! Later on I watched A Country Practice and Molly became my new heroine, I think she is the reason I've ended up in Australia living in a country town growing my own veggies! It was even sadder when she died, sob!
