Well, decided to take the TV out of the swinging Zootsuit bedroom (ha!) and use the '50's blonde desk as a vanity table. I currently have some oriental (Asian) jewelry boxes, some turquoise lamps and some ladies "gadgets" (see below) that I collect because I love the packages and the idea that those small items were actually important at one time, on the vanity.
Also, I found some old get well, Birthday and new Baby cards in my Aunt Betty's cedar chest. I love the graphics and the little poems inside. It certainly was a different time.
This zipper pull is so funny to me! But I do remember zippers up the backs of dresses being awkward without someone's help.
Then, there's the plastic rain cape, the sweater guard and the strap holder. Ahhh, the days when a bra strap wasn't supposed to be visible ...Thanks, Madonna!
One time I did a blog on what women seemed to always carry in their purses in the fifties and early sixties when I was little. I remember my Grandma always having the plastic rain bonnet, the pill cup that was collapsable and a package of Beeman's gum.
Grandma called it her "pocketbook". Anyway, hope you enjoyed my little remembrances. A lady simply must have a dressing table in the boudoir!
