i love all things vintage
especially when it comes to my favorite of holidays
so i was
away some time online
browsing old christmas ads
to share with you all
some are cutesy
some are nostalgic
just a little
you be the judge
oh mister president
here's joan crawford hawking the lucky strikes
even lucy and ricky got in on the holiday haze
so funny when
there isn't a celebrity out there who would dare to
plaster his or her face on a package of smokes
even the kiddies are included
nothing says 'merry christmas' like
a cigarette lighter for mom under the tree
this is better
i'll take kitchen appliances any christmas
just a happy holiday family photo
with everyone dressed in their christmas best
and, of course
even little timmy
are your cockles warmed yet?
this poor man in the lounger appears to be more than a little
i don't know who loretta young was
but if that's what an avon lady is supposed to look like
i've got a little...primping
what is this an ad for
at what point will her bathrobe catch fire
is she in the sky?
here's a little ww2 nostalgia
does anyone else look at this and think
to infinity and beyond!
or is it just me?
and guns don't peak your interest
how about a good old
this one is true christmas americana
are all those children his and hers?
must be homeschoolers....
i leave you with this image
an attractive woman
lying on the floor
stroking her shiny new
perhaps we should just keep this christmas idea list
