This post did not turn out the way I wanted it too, my plan was to share some advertisements pertaining to fall from my vintage magazines - but, I don't seem to have that many fall issues and there sure aren't many fall related ads in the ones I have. So, the topic changed to household ads from my Good Housekeeping, October, 1971 issue.
The 70's take us back to all those wonderful colours - and to get that mod colour for your kitchen, all you had to do was buy a package of Rit.
Maybe you were already set up in a kitchen that looked like one of these...
What kitchen is complete without a mixer? And, what an offer, buy a mixer, send away for a shaver!!
I'd love to have one of these pots! Who knew you could send away for these beauties? There were so many mail in offers in the magazines back then - here's a post I did on that very topic back in July.
No kitchen would have been complete without Palmolive- who can forget "Madge"
I think this is a color we all identify with the 70's. I don't remember anything around home in this colour though, our kitchen appliances were brown!
I wouldn't mind having this ironing board cover right now. I am on the hunt for a new one and it's not going well, any store I've checked has very few and they are either plain or striped - don't they make pretty ones anymore?
I don't know anybody that had a livingroom that looked like this, everything was brown, gold or rust where I lived!!
This looks more like it...
There was just no end to the things you could send away for. I had to include this embroidery one because I actually did the fall scene, way back then, and gave it away as a gift!!
This was a great deal..we all belonged to a record club of some sort!!
There's those colours again.
The bathroom could be quite mod too... Hey Fatso, now, that's quite the pair of scales!!! Once again, something else to send away for, your mailbox could be full!!!
I'm including a couple of food advertisements as well, I remember Mom making upside down pineapple cake every time we would go to visit my grandmother, I never liked it, I don't think I've had it since the 70's, maybe it would taste better to me now.
Space Food Sticks - I've never heard of these but then, we probably didn't have these in Canada..
One thing that's still going strong - Kraft Macaroni and Cheese - but named Kraft Dinner here in Canada!!
These posts always take a while to work on but they're fun, times have changed but then in other ways, things are still the same - like Kraft Dinner!!!
