I'm sharing one of my thrifted magazines with you again today - it's the December 1966 issue of Woman's Day - the magazine was 92 pages back then and did you know that was the thirtieth year that it was published? It's the Christmas issue so you know what that means - toys, food and fashions.
Have you used used oilcloth to decorate?? It's a long time since I've even heard that word!
How about some grapes hanging on the banister?
The decorations were shiny and bright, weren't they?
This is called the "trim-the tree supper" - assorted cold cuts, coleslaw and radishes, hearty seafood chowder, rye and pumpernickel bread, sweet and savory butter, coconut-grenandine trife. It's quite a spread!!
Molasses Sugar Cookies - I must say, they sound good!!
Nothing but Black Diamond for the fruitcakes!
This is a very elaborate plate - using Miracle Whip and cling peaches - served hot!!
You could send away for the stocking patterns.
This was actually the only toy advertisement in the magazine - look at the music box iron on the lower part of the page - that's a neat old toy!!
General Electric had some nifty items, like the new Automatic Clothes Brush, His and Her pocket Cigarette Lighters, GE Shoe Polisher...
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is spread across four pages - it says to watch for the Grinch on CBS's 30 minute animated musical color special on Sunday, December 18 - and it's still playing, after all these years.
Use Breck for beautiful hair!
Holiday Hairstyles - use hairpieces, if you have to!
All you had to do was buy the Simplicity pattern and sew this golden beauty up, cost to make a size 12 dress, about $36.00
Oh, the velveteen dress - Mom would make me a new one every year for the Christmas concert...
And, here I am in all my velveteen glory - there are a few pictures of me with these dresses on, a different color every year - I don't know how old I am in this picture - but I do know one thing, I have quite the hair do going on there!
