A treasure

My friend Stephanie gave me a treasure the other day: a Good Housekeeping magazine from September 1927. She thought I might be able to do some sort of crafty project with it (and I do have plans already!)



I have been thumbing through the old magazine since she gave it to me. What a treat.

I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite ads and articles:



I love this. It says that if you have oily skin, it "needs vigorous scrubbing with hot water, Ivory Soap and a good rough washcloth....several times a day to keep it clear and fresh."

And,  for hair care advice:


"Strangest of all is the idea that cleanliness is bad for the hair. The most modern skin and scalp specialists urge frequent washing -- three of four times a month."



Toilet paper that is "soft as old Linen".


A new fridge....










I had to laugh when I saw the ad for Manlius. My strict grandmother sent my father there for a couple of years as a punishment as a teen for egging his teacher's Virgin Mary statue on Halloween....




"Nervous, backward and mental defectives." This was a REAL ad!




A school to train your boys to become a man?



I loved this one, too!!!
