Happy Cashmere Bouquet Day!

Now what is a vintage magazine without an ad for Cashmere Bouquet? And on this Valentine's Day what could be more appropriate than a bed of roses? Thank goodness the July 1955 issue of the Ladies' Home Journal is there for us!
**This is an ad from my personal collection, scanned in just for you! Feel free to snag this ad FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE ONLY! No big and bad terms of use and you don't have to link back to me just please do not sell this article as part of a clip art CD or anything like that. I will send the thorns after you....and it will hurt. :D Also, please make sure to save it to your own computer! Photobucket has started charging for bandwidth use overage-BOOOOO-urns. Thank you!**

Ahhh..."the sheer luxury of having every inch of you soothed and sweetened with Cashmere Bouquet talcum powder..." What a delightful tag line! Does anyone use talcum powder anymore? I can remember my mom having talcum and me playing with it when I was a kid. I always felt so fancy when I would smack myself in the face with the powder puff just like they do in the Muppet Show. lol

Cashmere Bouquet is the name of an actual flower, also known as Rose Glory Bower, Mexicali Rose, or Mexican Hydrangea.

Here's wishing you a day of sheer luxury!

Family Pictures Album Nine

I previously posted my family albums on my other blog Just Add Glitter and Stir so if you're new to them, here's the low down:

These are some pictures from our Family Vault (i.e. the box of 11 albums in our den) that I received from my mother-in-law. They are pictures from my husband's side of the family and go back as far as the early 1900s as far as we can tell. You can read more about and see the first one here, the second one is here, the third album is here, the fourth album is here, the fifth is here, the sixth album is here, the seventh is here and the eighth is here

As always: I'm sure it goes without saying that these pictures are not to be posted anywhere or used in any way without express permission from me. Period. I can be contacted at justaddglitter at I promise I don't bite! :D

Today I'm going to be showing you pictures from the ninth album. This album seems to include pictures from the 1950s for the most part. I've picked out some of my favorites to show you here. The first which is pretty amazing to me (check out the height on that sunflower, holy cow! lol)

Enjoy! :)

Have a great day everyone! :)
