I remember Elsie! Guess I'm dating myself, lol! And those PJ's, OMG, I remember having some almost identical to those! My mom felt the need to dress my sisters and me identical. I can't blame her, I did the same with my girls. Thanks for sharing, Nan

That Redbook takes us back a ways. However, I find some of the older magazines have better reading than today. Nice red showing.

My mama got this mag along with Redbook, Ladies Home Journal, and McCalls. I read every page as a child. No wonder I am so...so...
Well whatever!

PS. I buy things and forget doing it, too. It's like a twice surprise!

Yes I remember Elsie. I love the old magazines. Some of the ads are really quite funny now that we look back on them. Thanks for sharing.

Barbara, I love you magazine post. Weren't those illustrations simply fabulous? I have a 1952 Ladies Home Journal and I just love to look at for it's ads and for those vintage dresses the models wore.
