Thirties Thursday: "All Trails Lead to Ice-Cold Coca-Cola"

I just realized tonight that I've been a terrible hostess.  I've asked you (in my blog header) to "grab yourself a soft drink" and travel back in time with me - but I hadn't put any refreshments in the ice box for you to grab!

Well, I've remedied that.  If you stop by tonight, I promise that I'll have an ice box full of Coca-Cola waiting for you.  Actually, some of these bottles have been on ice since 1933, almost 80 years - so they should be plenty cold by now.  I hope it was worth the wait!

Please feel free to stop over any time you need "a wave of wholesome buoyancy to restore you to normal."

I promise to have more Coca-Cola waiting.  Or maybe...a Sip of Sarsaparilla.


  1. Oh my goodness, that last advert looks scary! I can't imagine feeling relaxed with all of those wires crimped to my hair. LOL. Lovely adverts though, it does make me thirsty.

  2. The last one is my favorite, actually - probably because it is so scary. She looks like an alien, don't you think?

    Trips to the beauty parlor must have really been something back in the 30's!

  3. You have a great blog here. As you know, I love illustrations. i adore that perfume box (must go check EBay) and love the ribbon book pictures. You are a great eye...lots of style! I have you marked so I will return.

    It was fun to meet you today. That was a fun sale!


  4. Suz,
    Thanks for stopping by!
    I'll be auctioning off the perfume box on eBay soon. I needed to enjoy it myself a little longer before I sell it!


I love all of your comments - it's what makes blogging fun! C'mon, let's get a conversation going...
