Today’s post is for all kinds of furniture ads (not just one kind) from the 1920s to the 1960s with their vibrant colors, playful illustrations, and clever copy that grabs your attention and transports you back in time.

For those of us who like to do vintage hairstyles, I think it’s easy to get caught up in thinking you have to have a perfect style, but these women are proof that perfection was not always attainable (and they still look great). I have also decided to do this post because I have been noticing that lots of people are searching for ‘1950s women’s hairstyles’ and coming to my website. I don’t have ..read more

Frankie also lived to be 94 which is what allowed him to reach newer generations later in life (I even got to meet him. Picture at the end). He also was a HUGE lover of Swing Era Big ..read more
