While visiting my parents, I read this book.
I loved dipping into the sixty's and going vintage with the characters. With my own issues of technology taking over real life conversations and face to face connections, this was right up my alley!
And to make my experience even better, I spent the week going through old fashioned things taken from my grandma's house. Here's the photodump of vintage awesomeness.
Yes, this is a Better Homes and Gardens Magazine from 1963! Awesome, right?
I absolutely loved these ads. Ice cream in Cream of Wheat? Sure, why not?
We also found dresses my grandma wore back in the day.
This is of me in her homemade wedding dress! So much fun!
It was a great week made even better by reading Going Vintage and finding these vintage things from my personal past.
If you haven't read it, do it! I love Lindsey Leavitt's books.
