Happy Valentine's Day

I thought I would celebrate Valentine's Day and the fact that I now have my beautiful new Epson All-In-One printer (with wireless capability!) going by adding some vintage advertisements from my February 1951 issue of Household magazine.

This ad for Baker's Coconut is a lot of fun, and that cake looks wonderful!

You're going to need some of the Serviset paper dinnerware to really make that Baker's Coconut cake special!

Finally, my favorite!  "Because he's a lamb, and you want to be his angel...Remember, men love Swans Down cakes (and the girls who bake them)!  What a fun ad.  I can only imagine the kind of reaction an ad like this would receive if it were run in a magazine today.  So much for simple times.  I think I'll have a piece of Pink Heaven Cake on my Serviset, please!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone - and to all of you who are single like me - try to find some humor in the day and enjoy the fact that you're single!
