~ Vintage Thanksgiving... post cards of Corn...


I am not kidding, when I tell you there are hundreds of vintage post cards... with corn as the theme.  Thanksgiving is all about the corn, turkey and pilgrims on these vintage cards.

~ Mid Century Turkey...


I am loving the happiness that these ladies have in them... after all that cooking in a hot kitchen.

~ Thanksgiving greetings... Fall colors...


This is one of the few Thanksgiving greeting cards, that I came across...  that has no turkeys or pilgrims on it. Love the colors...

~ Vintage cooking... Kaiser Foil....


I am telling you, I had a real challenge finding fun mid-century themed advertisements for Thanksgiving. And this Kaiser Foil ad is not really a Thanksgiving theme one. As much as it is just cute.

~ Vintage advertisement... Acorn Stove...

Acorn Stove @ 1886

Just so pretty! These are some really great graphics, on these vintage advertisements for Acorn Stoves. 


And if there was ever a stove that would heat up a entire house, on a cold Winter morning. It is this guy! Look at that amazing stove. Think of how many toes were broke... by accidentally banging up against those big metal feet.

I did love how pretty these old paper tags were. Plus I am desperate for Fall images and these are getting used!  :)

~ Vintage cooking.... Norge Atomic Range...

November 1948 - Norge Stove

My goodness... all dressed up and cooking up a storm. Love the heels. Perfect hair. And hanging out in what you know... was a blazing hot kitchen. 


Really, who were these fabulous girls. Who manage to look this divine... while standing in heels with a face full of perfect makeup. Not even breaking a sweat.

~ November, Thanksgiving & Fall... looking for those vintage images...

I normally would  have done a month of vintage Halloween images for October. But unfortunately everyday life gets in the way sometimes. So I decided to do the month of November, instead... and fill it with fun vintage Fall advertisements and vintage Thanksgiving images. 


It turns out that unless I want nothing but pictures of turkeys and pilgrims... it was going to take a lot of digging in Pinterest. And I still am lacking the good stuff I  like to show off. So pickings will be a little slim.  But I have oodles of neat stuff for December. 


So get prepared for a few turkey images. Seriously... I am stunned that November is all about corn, turkeys and pilgrims in the old vintage images. But I did come up with a handful of mid-century Fall theme ones...

~ More crochet goodness.... mint and nut holders...



Well I finally found some more oddities from the crochet world. I had showed these amazing little cozies off a couple years ago. I am always on the look out for the weird stuff. And I found some first cousins, to these crochet darlings. 


One set is in great shape... the other have been been used and have darken down a bit. But I bought them all for maybe six dollars. And I really wanted those two that look like a tea cup sitting on a petal flower base. So that meant buying them all. I am thinking these were made for small treats... nuts or mints holders to sit on a table to pretty it up. 


They were starched too when I got them.  And nothing makes me happier than the weird stuff. 


I did come across another set of these Hazel Atlas pink shakers. A girl can never have enough pink in the kitchen. Plus they have their matching lids. I love when the lids are original. I hate having to locate lids to fit these older shakers. 


So one little set of crochet cozies... has turned into me having crochet nut holders. 


~ Vintage goodness - Amazing children dishes... Jadeite...

image from here... and currently looking for a new home... 

As per my usual... I love roaming around eBay looking for the vintage glassware. Especially the stuff in minty condition.  This time it is a stunning set of children hostess dishes in Jadeite.  I was bidding on it... and then it started to get a little pricey. 

image from here... and looking for a new home!

Look at that box of perfection. My goodness I love seeing that things this perfect... still exist. I know none of my childhood dishes are still in their original boxes. Then again I had the sweet little china tea sets, that I bought at the local M.E. Moses.  My goodness I must have had 8 sets of those china tea sets. All sizes and decorations. I loved them all.  Plus I inherited(hand me downs) all kinds of good things (for little girls) from my older cousins too. My goodness I have never really stopped collecting dishes.  They just cost me a lot more now. Than those sweet little 4.00 sets from M.E. Moses. 

image from here... and still for sale! 

It is safe to say, I really wanted this set of Jadeite.  :)
