Wealth of Information...

We were recently given a ton of magazines from the 40's, 50's and 60's. Molly's Aunt and Uncle cleaned out a old lady's home and saved all of these from the trash. They thought we might be able to use them and they sure were right! Thanks guys!

There are a lot of womans magazines such as McCalls, Ladies Home Journal, and Mademoiselle. These are great to look at and have some real funny things in them. Some of the recipes are some of the worst food I have ever seen. Some really nasty stuff. The ads are the best.

The really best part is the Better Homes and Gardens from the late forties, fifties, and early sixties. They are great. I haven't even been able to get through all of them yet.

I hope to share many of the things in these publications. The Better Homes and Gardens have enough in them to fill a blog alone. Not everyone can get their hands on these mags so I figure that there is much to share. I know I have learned a lot from looking at these.

I am beyond jealous!!
I have been keeping my eyes out for vintage home/fashion mags without success. Came across a few national geographics - but they weren't the same ;)

I would never, ever get anything done ever again if I had that stash! Oh my, you are lucky ducks. I sure hope you can make it back to your blog to share all that goodness with us!
