This is the Yardley era magazine for girls who read Seventeen Magazine in the mid Sixties. I needed some pink, I think, or an attitude adjustment. Thus the pink construction paper for this week's art class projects.
Teaching the youngest group to cut bites into the folded paper to make peek-a-boo holes brought delight. The threes were thrilled to look through their "masks". That must have been what brought Twiggy's eyelashes and Jean Shrimpton's lip gloss to mind.
Things are a bit rosier now. Some sunny, crisp, frosty mornings helped my outlook.
