Memory Lane via Woman's DayWhile trying to organize my ever increasing supply of quilting magazines, I came across a couple of Woman's Day magazines from 1970 and 1972 that Barbie sent home with me. Wow! These magazines are 40 years old and only cost 20/25 cents!
I couldn't resist sitting down and browsing through them, just like I did 40 years ago. Honestly, when I opened the pages it was like they had never left my hands. They transported me back in time to when I was a young housewife with four kids underfoot.
|Remember the Collector's Cook Book? I used to save these all the time even if I didn't make the recipes. I always had good intentions.|
|They were advertising the Encyclopaedia Britannica. No Internet.|
|. . . And cigarettes for women. It was not that long ago that smoking was very acceptable. Look at that picture; no wonder we wanted to smoke.|
|Charlie Brown! I forgot that you could find him and Snoopy in Woman's Day. Charles Shulz wrote a whole story, six magazine pages long, for this edition.|
|How many remember making ponchos for their kids? I do!|
|How about those hats? The patterns are right in magazine if anyone is interested.|
If we didn't have rain, we wouldn't have flowers . . .
|These hydrangeas belong to the neighbour, but I get to enjoy them when I walk out my side door.|
|The rain beat down my poor little rose.|
|Common Name - Gooseneck Flowers|
|Scientific Name - "Spreadallovertheplace"|
|Rose of Sharon is starting to bloom.|
My little yard is not always the best kept yard; lots of weeds are taking over by the fence. I am afraid to work out there this time of year since I have caught poison ivy or poison oak twice while pulling weeds. Miserable experience! Both times I had to get cortisone from the doc to clear it up, so must have an allergy. However, I can still isolate the beauty of the flowers with my camera. Enjoy!
