60's and 70's at JFF

Pop over to Just for Fun and see the great samples and entries for the challenge-brilliant.

What great times we had then though I got married in 1962 and had my first child in 1964. You should have seen the wallpaper we had-I am fightened just thinking about some we had on all of the walls in a small bathroom -relaxing it wasn't lol!

Well I used to make tie and die headsquares that you wore as a head band. I found it difficult to remember how the heck to perfect tie and dye these days so these are poor replicas of my amazing works of art in the old days:) Could be my memory isn't as good as it was lol and they weren't as perfect as I am thinking they were.:(

A must with a headband was the target earrings and a CND medallion on leather.


  1. They look interesting Chrissie :) like the pink, what did you use for the colour ? I don't think I ever wore the CND symbol but I still have the large copper cross I used to wear lol

  3. Tie dying!!, what great memories..... I think I tie dyed anythign that stood still, lol.... I was born in 1960, but can remember my aunt showing me when I was bout 8 or 9, I came home and grabbed whatever I could, and filled the bath, my mother nearly killed me, hee hee it didnt stop me though lol...
