I don't remember if I ever got a Chatty Cathy. I never was much for playing with dolls, and I was probably too freaked out by the Twilight Zone's "Talking Tina" episode to ever ask for a talking doll.
Lincoln Logs and Tinker toys were my idea of Christmas fun.
I still have the Brownie camera on my bookshelf. Remember those hot flashbulbs? I thought it was so cool when they finally made those flashbulb strips that you flipped around. That eliminated having to change a bulb after every use.
On Sunday (?) night, Ed Sullivan had Topo Gigio on his show
He was always one of my favorites. I also always loved the Christmas themed issues of Saturday Evening Post. The cover was usually graced with a painting by Norman Rockwell. And contained ads featuring Santa promoting smokingRemember McCalls magazine with Betsy McCall?
The girl always had it made.
I didn't even put up a tree. I have a Hallmark tree loaded with miniature ornaments. They just don't make the sets of mini ornaments like they used to, so it is a good thing that I bought them way back when. I found this site. VINTAGE GOODNESS in case you would like to realize how old you really are. I saw things flipping through this blog that I have owned. Most have gone in the garbage. If I had many things pictured on the blog, I would look at them as old and dated, and toss them.
Have a good day from a vintage blogger
