Inside The Magazines..
















Here are a few pictures inside the Magazines from the 30ies..The patterns for dresses are quite interesting..Hair do is the finger wave style..

The gowns are really quite lovely..In all honesty, with a little nip and tuck here an there, could be todays style..

The kitchen is interesting and they have sure changed .The funny part is, I have a sink and stove just like it

in the barn.
The cabinet looks like a hoosier cabinet and have one of them in the kitchen..that didn't come with this house..something I had..Anyway, all of this is really fun to see and I hope you enjoyed it..Will check out other pages as time goes on..


Till next time, keep looking up...

I love old magazines. I used to spend hours looking through a Sears catalog from the 1930's at my grandfather's.

Interesting, I wonder how does one do up a finger wave hairdo...happy weekend :D

I love the finger waved hairstyles, I wish I could do it to my hair, but my hair is so thick and straight, it won't let me do anything. It has a mind of its own.

What cool pictures! I know a woman in her 90s who used to tell me how she would go door to door doing hair for people, and the finger weave/wave was her specialty!

So....did everyone back in the 30's weigh 100 pounds or less?? Can you see those styles on a "curvy" figure?? lol Love the kitchen, I used to have a beautiful old hoosier cupboard, sadly I don't have it any longer.

Smiles, Karen

I love looking at old magazines and ads. Just seeing how people live and what they thought was cutting edge.

I have a sink just like that in my kitchen...and have cooked on a stove like that one before, how those poor women did it with such large families...that's all they did...cook and clean...
