I had big plans for today.  So much to do…and time is not going to stop for me.  However, my body would not cooperate with me today, so, I’ve spent it on the couch instead.  To pass the time, I’ve taken a little trip through the Internet.  Somewhere along the way,  I ran across these old ads.  I thought they were a hoot!  Couldn’t get away with running some of these today!  Enjoy!

Remember the days when you would gather your extended family and go look at typewriters?  🙂

Already wrapped in a beautiful gift box for your convenience!  Now, will someone please unwrap Santa?

I sincerely hope Mom and Dad don’t expect all 5 boys to share just one bike!

Have you ever tried to iron while sitting?  Could be why the Rid-Jid company went out of business so soon!

I would have been happy with one of these.  Wait a minute!  I HAD one of these!  Really!

We had a big white Plymouth Fury…but I don’t remember ever getting this excited about it!

So glad these went out of style before I was old enough to wear them…I’m afraid my OCD tendencies would have run wild trying to keep the seams straight!   But, cute shoes!

Two front teeth?  That’s all?  Sure?

I can assure you this would NOT be a beautiful way to say ‘Merry Christmas” at my house.

And remember…”Always use Christmas Seals.”




  1. T-jator!!!! We missed you so last week! I know you have been a busy little bee! I can tell! Many fun days! Today, I see you are wrapping-one of your favorite things to do! 🙂 I was speechless after reading your Smile Train post. Beautiful. One of my favorite posts. Such hope for so many! Thank you for sharing the photos of your sweet baby! What a blessing indeed! Love you girl! Merry Christmas!!!!!

  2. Love the old ads. I remember my Dad getting cigarettes for Christmas. That ironing boards seems to be a little pricey for the time period! I have been catching up on reading posts from last week – hope you are a little warmer now. It appears to be more like Christmas weather where you are than here in CO. The mountains are getting tons of snow – some are predicted to get 6-8 feet by the end of the week, but here in the city nothing. I have lived here all my life and can never remember now having snow this late in the year. Hope your body is cooperating with you today!

  3. Thank you so much. Those are awesome! I loved looking at each one. Hope your feeling better.
