Good Friday to all!!
The weather here has deteriorated, once again. But above all of the clouds is glorious sunshine and I will have to think on that all, in fact all weekend, from the sounds of the forecast that CBC radio was giving this morning.
So what better to do than relax and read through some magazines. My sister Sue gave me a stack of vintage magazines several years ago. This one is from June 1944.
Lets see what is inside. Don't you love the old advertisements? I do.
And I love to see the decor that was popular back in the '40's. Here are a few examples of traditional, modern and even country from an article entitled, "What Makes a Room GOOD".
I love the red used in the photo above. And don't you love the area rug?
A lot of the photos were in black and white back then.
Now for a Before and After of a guest bedroom.
Notice all of the red roses that were added. A few pieces of furniture, the chest, a place for the suitcase and the footstool. It is now much more cheerful, don't you think? And a pattern so we can make the lovely bed jacket that the leisurely guest was wearing in the "Before" photo.
And we will finish off with some recipes from Del Monte Foods for some summer salads.
I hope you enjoyed our journey into the 1940's
and hopefully it brightened your day just a little bit.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends and I will see you next week!
