Hello ladies! I am so excited to be back joining the fun blog carnivals Rednesday and Vintage Thingies Thursday! I have been anxious to share this lovely vintage women’s magazine I purchased over a year ago with you all and this seemed like the perfect post to do it.
Typically when I am at an antique store and come across a stash of vintage magazines, they range from the 40s up into the 70s, with a bulk of them landing in the 50s and 60s. Rarely have I come across something from the 20s, and especially in such nice condition (and such a nice price- I think I paid 5 dollars for it!). I am not a needlework enthusiast myself but I so enjoy looking at all the beautiful illustrations, both in the articles and the advertisements, that my lack of knowledge of the subject matter was inconsequential. I’d like to share some of the beautiful images from the magazine with you below (and look out for lots of RED!).
I love love love all the homey domestic scenes that magazines used to include in their pages. Look at this sweet illustration of a mamma on the floor reading with her little girl. Precious!
This article about table linens and aprons showed ladies enjoying teatime together and they appreciate each other’s handiwork. Look how glamorous those gals look with their flapper-style bobs and dresses. So cute!
Now this was probably my favourite ad in the magazine, because as an advocate for breastfeeding I thought it was so cool to see an ad encouraging nursing even back in 1927.
Red fans will love this old ad for Campbell's Tomato Soup!
Another great domestic scene in an ad for baking powders. I love how moms used to take so much pride in feeding their family, and we can still take pride in that today!
And finally, Il leave you with this glamour shot advertising the movies- does it get more 1920s than this?? Love it!
Thank you for stopping by at my blog and enjoying a little time-warp fun with me. God bless!
