I'll Take That Compliment, Thank You!

We had a wonderful day. Perfect weather for Memorial Day. We attended the local parade. It was short, but we were able to see the veterans. I received a nice compliment from a lady in the crowd. She said that she loved the classic look. I usually receive compliments from women when I am out and about. I believe this day in age women do not compliment each other at all. I believe my attire somehow makes other women at ease and thus opens a line of communication. I rarely go out without having a compliment thrown my way from another gal. I think it's wonderful when we can stop and talk as strangers like that. I want to think it's like back in the day when you could borrow a cup of sugar from your neighbor.

The 1950's Housewife Cleaning Products vs. Modern Cleaning Products

My husband is off to work and our 3 children are off to school. I updated my Vintage Closet page here on the blog. Dishes are done and laundry is washing and drying. Yes, I have a dish washer and modern appliances of course. I am on the look out for a vintage refrigerator..specifically a pink one.

I DID hand wash pots and pans this morning with Dawn dish soap. It got me wondering what cleaning products I am using today that my mother did in the 1950's. I've done a little research and here is what I've found with the products I have on hand. I love the 1950's packaging and may start my collection.

Favorite Modern Movies with Housewives Set in the 1950's

I love finding a modern movie based around (housewives) in the 1950's. I sit and watch for background and wardrobe "correctness". Sometimes a see something like a chair or mid century decoration I NEED. I found a great movie this week on Netflix and decided to compile a list for reference. Maybe I will just binge watch all of these on a lazy, rainy day. All of these movies can be found on
