I’ve been on a ’20s-’40s-era music kick lately. I can’t stop watching this video of old movie footage of swing dancing to music by a modern electro artist, Parov Stelar, for instance. Or how about this, to get you in the mood:

Anyway, I’m in a vintage mood, harking back to times when everything seemed more romantic and people danced the charleston and music was made with a brass band, so I’ve put together a Folksy Friday collection of lovely handmade things inspired by (or at least remind me of) the roaring ’20s. Enjoy!
