Moxie & Mel

{January 8, 2007}   Remember Me?

I know, I know. I have been super neglectful of this adorable little blog and all the fun products that go with it for Moxie & Mel. Truth is, I’ve been SWAMPED with things for Natural Magic Soaps and we’ve had a bit of familial drama. Such is life.

However, I haven’t abandoned hope just yet. I’ve been working on my products here and there and collecting more ‘inspiration’ of late. Which brings me to today’s topic.

Gay Gadgets.

Yes, you read that correctly. Gay Gadgets.

You might find yourself wondering exactly what Gay Gadgets are; those of you with less-than-clean imaginations might even be picturing an item or two. I can assure you your wildest dream wouldn’t come up with these babies:

Thats right folks. I give you: Shade pulls, lamp pulls and curtain pin backs, the Gay Gadgets included in the 1954 Coat’s & Clark “Kitchen Crochet”, Book No. 304 (originally 10 cents, in case you were wondering).

Here’s a look at the lovely items you too can make!
