Yesterday I spent the morning looking at a stack of unread "Look" and "Life" magazines spanning from 1966-1972. Each issue is so entertaining, from the inane letters to the gorgeous photographs, to the ads. True to their time, each issue is packed with cigarette ads and a lot of them are completely hilarious! The alcohol ads can be pretty out there too but I will save those for another post.
Cracked.com (a site I visit daily) has a really funny article all about how bizarre vintage cigarette ads were. 5 insane trends from vintage cigarette ads
While watching Turner Classic Movies one morning I discovered this great vintage blog: Vintage Powder Room
Have you ever read a vintage cookbook or glanced through a women's magazine from the 50s, 60s or 70s and noticed that some of the food looked inedible or some of the recipes are just really bizarre? You are not alone, check out The Mid Century Menu and if you are really brave you can try some recipes on the worst list.
I hope you've enjoyed my first link post. I spent today cleaning some jewelry my Mommom gave to me . Silver polish is a tool that every vintage and antique collector needs in their toolbox.
A pretty little tarnished bracelet
Many nasty looking coffee filters later
It came out so beautiful
