Today is the first day of our Spring Break. I think I might be a tad more exited than my girls. As many of you know I homeschool my babies. As much as I LOVE homeschooling and wouldn't have it any other way, I also LOVE days off. So what did I do this morning? I stayed in bed with my new thrifted pillow cases. I picked up this sweet pair for $6.00. They are precious.
Unfortunately my darling had to go to work. If only we were independently wealthy....
I did do a little light reading while I sat in bed until....10:00. There I said it. 10:00!! You can't blame me, I stayed up way too late watching "Rock of Love...Bus." It's a skanky repulsive show and I can't help myself.
I found this old magazine at the antique mall where I got the pillowcases. It's a Good Housekeeping magazine from July, 1936. It is awesome! I love reading all of the advertisements. They are hilarious. Let's take the add for Camel cigarettes for instance...
Apparently, we should smoke....for digestions sake. Who knew?
Hmmm....what if she is??? Whatever shall I do???
Of course!! Give her some Ovaltine, that'll fix her.
Click on this one above, it's fabulous. There's a lot about 'keeping your man happy' in this magazine.
I think these little girls were crank calling people...."...is your refrigerator running?...giggle giggle"
I love this ad. It's awsesome. It's basically telling you that your makeup should not make you look like a painted up hussy. After all, we don't want to make our husbands angry.
Oooooohhhh he's mad...."grrrrr"
Can you imagine feeding your baby Pet Milk? Well, chubsy wubsy up there seems to like it. I do love me a smooshy baby!
Ooooh! Peg's sure to catch herself a husband now! Maybe even the pipe smoker or weenie roaster!
WHAT kind of naughty tooth brush IS this???
Ok, I'll stop now. I could spend hours posting pictures from this magazine. One of the things I like about it is that it is from two years after my little cottage was built. It's so fun getting a peek into what it was like for the people who first lived in my house.
I also picked up these little gems. They're cute as cute can be.
Since I can't stay in bed all day reading old magazines, I better do something productive. I'll clean the bathroom.
There. Nice and shiny. This little bathroom has come a long way. When we first bought this house, before we could even move in, it was so disgusting that I wouldn't let my little girls use it. While spending our days here renovating I would run my girls up to the little grocery store when nature called. So my husband gutted the whole thing and rebuilt it. He moved plumbing and lights and made it into a much more usable space. The layout before was just weird. We still have a bit to do in here, like finish the trim on the bead board, and a couple other little things. It's small, but that just makes cleaning it faster.
Now let's make scones!
Yum. Perfect for a rainy day. I think I'll have them in the living room, cuddled up with a quilt and a cup of tea.
Can't forget the lemon curd. I love this stuff. Maybe I'll be a real lady and just smother my scone with it.
There we go.
Next on my list is to move to the sewing room and work on this. Hope to show you more progress soon.
Here's to a rainy Spring Break afternoon. x
