Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you are new to this party, please take the time to read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. I have gotten a few complaints about people linking in and not doing what is required, please, try and visit each and every participant, that is really important. I know we are all busy, but even if it takes a few days to do so, please do that. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies being showed that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.
*****New Link Below:***** For the second week, I am trying out a new link system from McLinky. This is really a neat concept and hope this works well for us here at Vintage Thingie Thursday.
(1) Add your URL in the spot provited, then add blog or post title in the second spot.
(2) upload a picture for you post today, you can crop photo once it has been loaded, follow instructions. (It does not have to be the first picture on your post, just upload the picture you want to show in the thumbnail) That's it.
I am making the thumbnails larger this week, so I will see if that works better for the few of us who may have less than perfect eyesight.....raises hand here~
A few weeks ago, I received a lovely package in the mail from Susan. She is a reader of my blog and had inherited a box from her mothers estate. She felt sure I would enjoy a few of the things in that box and asked for my address. First off, that is so incredibly sweet of her, but when the package arrived, I was beside myself with joy.
This is a wonderful publication from the 1950's. And it is just full of wonderful ads, patterns and instructions for wonderful things. The cover alone is amazing and wonderful coloring.
This is dated Fall-Winter 1953-54, and will you look at the price..... 50 cents.
Just look at the fashions of that day.....This is a lovely hand knitted dress.
Another fun page of fashion inserts.
Look at these adorable doll kits. Oh, I love the magorette doll, she is just so sweet.
Here are more dolls and look on the far right....Look at that wiener dog!!!! Oh, so cute!!!!
What do you think about these needlework bedspreads, pillow cases and tablecloths. Pretty stuff!!!
This book even talks about quilts and quilt blocks!
I love the red and white one! So pretty.
Look at this ad!! I have never heard of a knitting bracelet. Pretty ingenious item truthfully.
And last, look at this ad for selling Christmas and all occasion cards. When I was in grade school, I answered one of these ads. Instead of money, if you sold so many boxes then you could win a black and white tv. I was determined to win that TV. I can remember walking the streets at my grandma's house selling these cards. I did sell enough to win the TV and was so proud of my efforts. This ad brought that memory back and a reminder of the spill I gave while I was trying to sell all of those cards to my grandma's neighbors!
This book is such a treasure, it is full of wonderful pictures, articles and ideas. I will be sharing more of this in the weeks to come!
Now, this my friends is a real jewel. I entered one of CC's giveaways and was the lucky winner of this beautiful apron. Oh, how sweet this one is too! Be sure to stop by her wonderful blog, she always has cute Sunbonnet Sues to show off!!
Thank you ladies for the wonderful gifts that arrived in the mail, it is so fun to know someone thinks of you and know just what kind of things you like! I am very grateful.
Have a wonderful Vintage Thursday Everyone......come back next week, I have lots to show you in regards to a Vintage Shower I gave......post starting Monday and will finish on VTT next week! Have a great weekend.
