Today as I was cleaning, I ran across these old magazines. They were tucked away in an old antique dressing table that sits in my living room. I forgot I even had them - what a fun find! I thought I would share - I wish I could have taken pictures of every page for you!
This old Family Circle was dated February 1957.
This was the very best in evening wear in 1957 - times have sure changed. . . or have they?
How many of you still have an Avon Lady?
I heard on the news the other day, that they were going to make Ivory soap smaller, the price will still be the same, you just won't get as much. Maybe they should start throwing in this brush for . . . .75 cents! Do you think if I filled in the form in the corner, and sent it in they would send it to me?
What would the kids think if you brought this tooth powder home? Don't laugh, I can remember using this kind of tooth powder!
Can I just tell you how much I love the artwork for their stories!! It doesn't get any better than this!
We are still making "I Love You" cakes! I better throw in the actual recipe -
Makes 1 eight-inch cake
1 package yellow cake mix
1 package fluffy-white-frosting mix
Red food coloring
Mix and bake according to directions on box. Mix frosting according to directions on box and color with food coloring to desired shade of pink - sprinkle with shredded coconut.
That's it . . . that's the recipe! I would definitely call this semi-homemade!
Two more that I loved, although there are about 10 or 12 more to look at! This Home Companion is dated November 1954, I was one year old. I especially love the fact that on the address label . . . is my mother's name and address. . . Isn't if funny how you never forget your first address?
My husband so kindly pointed out that I was not even born in 1954~I was born in 1955! I need to give myself every year that I can!! Maybe I am the "something old"... ;-)
