Being of Finnish heritage I have an innate appreciation for Finnish design, especially Marimekko. I just love their gorgeous bold prints and simple styles. Marimekko’s holiday designs are particularly spectacular, so I put together a Wish List of my favorites. I would love to make an entrance at a holiday party or gathering in any of these fabulous outfits!

Shimmering. Shiny. Gleaming nails and lips. Now in soft, clear, twinkling colors of gloss. There were four new Dior Twilight Bright Nail Gloss and Lip Gloss shades for Spring: Polaris Pink, Evening Green, Setting Sun, and Twilight Violet.
This is a really cute crochet pattern from 1973. Whip up a batch of bright little granny squares using three pretty colors in two combinations. Note the nice shaping achieved by the use of triangles.

Since 1970, Yardley of London had a huge hit on its hands with their glorious Pot o’ Gloss. In 1973 they came out with Pot o’ Shadow, which came in the same type of cute pot that Pot o’ Gloss did. It was marketed as soft, whipped eye shines that shimmer and play the light around your eyes. They finger-tipped on easily, and stayed on evenly.
Of course it mainly came in blue shades (Forever Aqua, Forever Blue, Forever Lilac, Forever Baby Blue), which were THE eye shadow shades of the early 1970s. They also included the boring Forever Brown and Forever White, for those of us with brown eyes who didn’t look good in blues. 😛
I love the expression on this adorable little girl! This is a great vintage 1973 crochet pattern for a Toddler Poncho. Ever see a granny square with a hole in the middle? Now you have! Perhaps not a true granny, but a very nice new variation on the theme of double crochet shells. In knitting worsted. Instructions on how to make are below. Click on photos to enlarge.
