A Kistchy Cure for Coulrophobics!

OK, I will admit it. I am a Coulrophobic from way back. But even I am not freaked out by these cute little mid-century decorative wall plates. Check 'em out in my etsy shop... they are eagerly awaiting a new home :)

Mary Richards eat Your Heart Out!

I finally decided to list this piece in my shop. Believe me, if it was silver tone I would be wearing it right now! Check it out!

Who knew the answer would be so simple...

I love escaping into my collection of vintage magazines.  Reading a "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" column from the late '50s will certainly give you a little perspective on how different things were back then.  Even having said that, and the fact that my mom has shared with me how things really were and, yes, watching Mad Men and seeing what woman went through in the workplace - even with all of this evidence I still think I was born a couple of decades too late.  As you can see in this ad from my June 1965 Ladies Home Journal, all I needed was an electric fry pan to cure what would have ailed me as a mid-century housewife!  Well, that and a valium.
