Vintage adverts (so cool!)

Thank you for all your comments yesterday, I have been round some and I will get to the rest soon. Lots of you spotted my little tin I hope to get this up for tomorrow. I'M GOING AWAY FOR A CRAFTY WEEK END!  he he. Yes so lots of things to organise as I am traveling tomorrow (long drive from here almost to Cardiff) it's all going to be about polymer clay and steam punk jewelry and I am very excited as I am going to be meeting new people and learning lots of new things. I am sure you know I love techniques and trying new things. I am going to take my computer and camera but I don't know if I will get to put much on my blog. But I will let you all know what happens, I'm sure lots of you have heard of Jema Hewit. She's for ever in magazines. And will be there teaching the steam punk jewelry class.

Any way on to the adverts, these are some mags I got yesterday I have a couple already and I said in yesterdays post that I would show you a closer look. You are going to love the adverts in these. But I have read some of the articles too and they're really a great trip down memory lane (all though I wasn't even born yet!) these are from 1958 I can still remember some of the film stars, although all the above have long since departed.

I don't know this lady but I do know Deano and Doris lol. Click on this to make it larger and read this! adverts have changed although I think they have the exact same effect but are much more subtle.

Now I loved Elvis look at this right up for his latest film (not very flattering) and it mentions that he will be off to the Army for two years. Will the fans wait for his return (not likely is the thought) but we all know they did wait and loved him even more lol. And look at the wonderful Dean and Doris I loved these I have loads of Doris films and lots of Deano CDs. (may have to get some of his films too).

Look at this. Solid wood game all the numbers will make perfect inchies! £1 for the game I love this.

Well I hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane and the adverts. I think I will photo copy them or scan them (not sure how my printer does that I have never used the scanner) I will have to work it out, I think it would be a shame to cut them up wouldn't it? Well I can't ignor the weather any longer it's sunny and set to be hot hot hot (well hotish) for the week end., so slap on some cream and get out in the sun and recharge, go find some new inspiration, meet with friends or family, but get away from the computer and blog land for a few hours he he. I do hope you have enjoyed this post, I share what makes me smile, and this made me smile. Love Dawn xx

I hope you have an awesome polymer clay and steampunk weekend. You really MUST share what you learned or made. Totally awesome, it sounds like.

I was especially struck by the photo of Jayne Mansfield. I'm too young to know that much about her, but I know that her daughter is Mariska Hargitay of Law and Order: SVU fame. I heard she was her daughter, and now I can confirm it from the magazine. What a lovely find. Of course, I'm probably the only person in the world who didn't care for Elvis or have a crush on the Beetles.

Enjoy your weekend.
