THE CULT OF THE LIGHT SHADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
THE CULT OF THE LIGHT SHADE. To make the shades here illustrated is far from difficult, and the few inexpensive materials are already in the house. Some cardboard (the kid-finished bristol is best. but any lightweight card will serve); a heavy watercolour paper is also very good, being strong and still pliable; some odd bits of tissue paper, a little paste, a little glue, some black ink or watercolour paint, and a sharp penknife. With these one has all that is necessary to make some really lovely things. The perforated patterns will assist one in getting the size and shape as well as the design, although it is very interesting to work out new shapes and designs for oneself. These shades are made in sections— I four sides and a top for the smaller shades] for the candles and electric bulbs, and six sides and top for the lampshade. The top piece, on which the sides are firmly glued, holds the shade in shape, and also fits either tie shadeholder or the bulbholder tightly, allowing no l...

A "WISHING WELL" FOR A MAY BRIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
A 'WISHING WELL' FOR A MAY BRDDE. That our great-grandmothers visited 'wishing wells in the month of May we very well know, and since there was ample authority for the belief that virgin wishes whispered into tne wen nau we magic power to hasten the matrimonial prospects of the wistful applicant, per nctffl such a 'well' would exhibit ma gical properties for a 'bridal shower' nowadays. 'The refreshment table may be artisti cally spread with a coloured crepe paper lunch cloth to harmonise with the floral decorations, which must be laced together with ribbons of the same tone. This should be laid over a white foundation or an old tablecloth. Remove the centre leaf of the table and substitute two short boards, which will leave a square, open space exactly in the table centre. Into this opening place a drain pipe of £um cient height to stand upon the floor and project above the table surface several inches. The 'well' walls may be charm ingly decorated by a circle of packed stones, moss...
NOVELTY OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
NOVELTY OF THE WEEK. In addition to the prongs that are worn in the hair jewelled pins are intro duced. The pins are exact reproductions of the ordinary hairpin, only larger in size. They are made of gold, surmounted by diamonds. The crinkled sides of the hairpin of everyday use are present, and serve to keep the ornament in its place. By the spring time hairdressing schemes the use of the usually freely employed pins is reduced to a minimum. The ex quisite substitutes made by the jewellers supplement the few commonplace ones that are indispensable.
Upstairs and Downstairs. ORIGINAL DEFTER PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
Upstairs and Downstairs. ORIGINAL DINNER PARTY. A girl who is looking for a way out of the common to entertain some of her yoang friends will (says an American exchange) find . a 'progressive dinner party a jolly affair. I'here is nothing better for helping along new acquaint ances, and it also works wonders in an other way — in not allowing old friends to talk too exclusively with each other. Often the fun of a small entertainment is spoiled because one or two couples spent almost the whole evening jn talking to each other, neglecting every one else. The young hostess has cot 'always ex perience enough to prevent this mistake gracefully. The progressive dinner party is managed as follows: — tach young man is tola to take a certain girl in to dinner, as at any dinner party. The places at table are shown by the usual cards with names, During the first course they sit in these' places, but as the plates are being changed each young man takes the place of the next one to the right (or ...
PANNIER GRAFTED UPON HOBBLE SKIRT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
PANXIER GRAFTED UPON HOBBLE SKIRT. The practice of notching the circum scribed skirt in the front to reveal the feet and ankles or one foot only is ob served in this form of frock, but there again is a fashion that the fastidious will not accept, neither for the evening dress nor for the daytime one. Though many of the best tailors have discovered in the resource a modification that is really serviceable, the mere sug gestion is met with disapproval, and the requisite width is supplied in other ways instead of by rounding off the side seams at the hem and adding buttons and but tonholes, some to be fastened and others at the extreme end to be left unfastened. It is a sign of the times that the founda tion of a dress requires a mention again. Yes, after neglecting for a long time that once indispensable item of a frock, it has been restored to favour. Not only as a background to the tulle frock, but to the tailor made, there u a little silk dip lining'.
A PAQUIN PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
A PAQUOT PRODUCTION. It is instinct with madame's genius for detail, and the clever embroidery touches that she gives to so many of her new designs. She sets uDon a walkins- suit a collar with hatchet-shaped ends, made of dark claret canvas wrought with brilliant green, violet, and amber wools, like the chair-back and cushion embroidery popu lar some 40 years ago, or adds to an indigo coat, shoulder straps of scarlet leather, just roughly, cut out and fixed in their places with gold nail buttons — the clever est little idea! Charming little coats of this descrip tion may be worn with any dress, for indulgent Fashion gives her daughters per mission to vary tneir toilette schemes, thus fascinatingly.
NEW FADS AND NOVELTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
NEW FADS AND NOVELTIES. The heavy stitched gloves done in black are the newest departure for the white gloves of afternoon functions. Where the three-quarter .sleeves are worn, the 12-bntton or 16-bnftton lemtth fulfils re quirements, but where the sleeves are long the two-clasp gloves, with a heavy stitching must be selected. For morn ing wear there is nothing more service able tuan the Mocbu one^clasp gloves, in grey and tan, and ' their reasonable price commends them. An effective way] in which black is in troduced upon evening shoes is the pleated motif, which rests upon the instep, and looks very black against a background of flesh-coloured hosiery. Gold tissue shoes or the primitive shades of blue and pink, are garen pleated ornaments of black velvet, eatan, or net, clasped with brilliants: the latter deserve much merit in beautifying a neat pair of feet. The latest ruches show fur, lace, com, chiffon, and all lands of plaifengs alone and in combination, all coming well in aro...
