Something new was created and I remember women being excited about it...Curity was now selling prefolded diapers. I remember this was a huge step from having to fold your own diapers. Believe me, being the oldest of five children, I definitely folded my share of diapers and they weren't prefolded. It was a huge step for Curity diaper company.
Records...do you remember them? Can you believe that by joining this record club, you could get 12 records for $ 2.86? I begged to join this club, I remember it well. I was told there were more important things to spend money on. I am sure many of you did though, and that is why you can find so many records at flea markets and garage sales today..
Oh the fun memories of wearing the peasant styles of the day. These styles got their inspiration from the folk customs of many lands. Did I really wear outfits like this? Oh, yes I did. I still have the pictures to prove it.
Our high school highly recommended that each family get a set of encyclopedias. I clearly remember the night my parents met with the man who sold them "World Book" encyclopedias. I remember felling so important now that our family had our own set. They were carefully stored in the wooden bookshelves at the top of the stairs, and there we all went for the info needed to complete our homework. I also remember how important it was to my parents, that we took special care of their newly purchased investment.
My mother has been receiving copies of the "Good Housekeeping Magazine" for many years. She reads her copy, then shares it with me and others in her family. Last week she brought the newest copy up to me and little did I realize, that the magazine is celebrating it's 125th year.
Because of this anniversary year, every month they will share their favorite vintage covers. Here is the Sept. 1914 cover, which sold for 15 cents a copy.
I appreciate their delicious looking recipes each month. This one looked especially appealing to me, since I enjoy corn and bacon soup.
I am also impressed and will clip and save the article with the "50 best low-calorie snacks" in it. I do crave snacks sometimes, and reading over this article, I see they shared some real good suggestions.
Of course, this article in the latest edition, would be one that would almost apply to me. I will be interested in seeing what they have to say to the empty nesters like us.
