~ Betty Crocker & Gold Medal Flour... Cake recipe...


I adore the vintage magazine recipes from Betty Crocker. This Spring Delight cake, also included Gold Medal flour.


Did they include flatware with flour? I can't remember which staple that came with a free piece of flatware...


I have roamed through lots of vintage Easter advertisements for cakes. This one is just so much fun! I love those coconut snowballs on the side...

~ Pyrex from the UK - gravy boats!

image from here.... and currently for sale!

Oh my goodness.... isn't this a wonderful piece of Pyrex. This is a delightful cornflower blue, Pyrex gravy boat with its saucer. That needs a brand new home! How great is this little piece of Pyrex. 

And not only does the seller in Etsy have the one above... she has four different ones in her shop!! All of them fabulous finds... which of course there is nothing like these to be located in the US. These wonderful little boats are located in the UK.

Now this pale green gravy bowl, is my favorite. I love this style of fired on color Pyrex. 

image from here.... and currently for sale!

They have the same style of Pyrex glassware, from Australia too. But sadly none of it was issued in the US.  Which is really annoying.  Be sure to go take a peek at this sellers Pyrex stuff. She has some amazing things for sale.

~ Agee Pyrex - made in Australia


Sometimes I come across some amazing things in Pinterest... and today that amazing thing is a vintage advertisement for Agee Pyrex. 

I am so jealous that this vibrant color glass line was not sold in the USA. 


This advertisement was from a Women's Weekly from November 1958.


And I am loving their pink striped Pyrex boxes!

I get a thrill when I see these vintage advertisements for this Agee Pyrex. I have a couple  more to share too.

~ Vintage goodness.... colored bathroom tissue!



Oh, how I miss having a choice in tissue. Instead of plain old white bathroom tissue, not too long ago there were lots of colors and patterns to chose from in the tissue aisle. 


And of course since it is the girls that tend to be colored driven... these advertisements were geared to catch our eye. 


So many of these vintage advertisements, I came across, seem to be from Scott tissue. And Scott tissue was not afraid to spend that money, on their ad's either.


I can not recall ever wearing a dramatic ball gown, to eye ball my new bathroom tissue. But it sure is pretty!


Of course there was a whole campaign of these beauties in expensive dresses, hanging out in their exquisitely decorated bathrooms.



I have never looked that pulled together in my bathroom. Ever. Neck scarves and up-do's. 


But you have to admit, Scott tissue knew who they were selling that bathroom tissue to. Girls who wanted tissue to match those bathroom towels!  I will admit that I always had pink or pink floral bathroom tissue, in my bathroom till they stopped selling it. It seems like I was still able to find it in the mid 1990's(?). Then it just disappeared.
