Good morning, good yawning!*

Don't you wish you looked like this upon waking up? I think I bear more resemblance to this.

No matter how hot the night, your Playtex pillow stays sleep-inviting, daisy-fresh!

This image is from a beautiful 1951 July 17 Look Magazine, which is my prized possession. I've been trying to find a scanner to use to be able to up load this whole thing, but alas, I have had to resort to the camera. I think I'll make it a weekly thing to upload a page or so. What do you darlings think?

On a separate note, the lovely Vanessa Valencia over at A Fanciful Twist, is throwing a little party. A halloween party, that is:

I personally love blog parties, and if you do too, head on over to her blog now to let her know if you'd like to participate!

*A phrase from one of my favorite children's books, The Patchwork Cat


  1. That's so fabulous that you have a Look magazine from the 50s! It would be my prized possession too if I had it!
    Love the ad. Haha, I definitely don't look that good waking up and I don't think the pillow would help ;)

  2. Chère Femme, I think it's a great idea to scan old photos, magazines! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Are you seriously going to be partying with us over at Vanessa's?! Woo hoo!

    I would love to add a Look mag to my collection, I adore 50's magazines!

  4. love the magazine - no way i look like that when i wake up, her hair is waaaay too perfect LOL :D

    i'm joining the blog party too - super fun :D

  5. I wish that was what I would look like that when I wake up in the morning... :) But my look tends to be a little messier, but I do have a cute nightie on ;)
