Gifts from Dad…

100_0798This is a post that is long overdue! My dad found these two little treasures and brought them home for me a little over a month ago. The top one is the Metropolitan Cookbook and is the February 1964 edition. It’s pretty fun. The pictures are hilarious – lots of smiling and dancing food! The descriptions are also quite entertaining (and also informative). The bottom book is the National Bellas Hess: America’s Money-Saving Style Catalog, Fall and Winter 1958-1959. It’s just fun to look through the styles, prices, and adds! Here are some pictures from both:


This page shows some lovely and happy sandwich filligns! Frankfurter-Cheese Filling – includes grated process American cheese, evaporated milk, skinless frankfurters, mustard, and mayonnaise!


This is just a tiny glimpse into all the fun dresses that are in this catalog!

Slips! Oh my goodness – the blue 7 tier “can-can”! It’s just too fun…


And of course, I couldn’t not post a pic of the underwear or ‘sanitary needs’. Please don’t miss the sanitary belts and more at the bottomof the page!

This has been fun to look through! Thanks Dad!

  1. What a great gift! Your Dad did such a good job!

    As far as the food goes, skinless frankfurters in a sandwich? Yikes! And how far underwear and slips have come (well. . . don’t know about slips, I don’t happen to own any at all). And sanitary needs? I’m glad things have progressed away from belts. . . and towards the Diva Cup! Hehehe. . .
