I recently found this vintage Better Homes and Gardens magazine from December 1966.
I laid it beside the December 2011 issue to compare the size and price.
The 1966 issues was just 35 cents and quite large while this month's was $4.99 (Canadian)
and considerably smaller. I did note that most of the pages in the 1966 issue were in black and
white with fewer color pages and the paper wasn't as smooth or shiny.
It was interesting to look through the magazine and see what the popular ads and
decorating ideas were in 1966.
Get a look at the newest thing in cameras from Kodak.
I had an instamatic back then too. Do you remember the square flash bulbs?
Did you ever join up for a record club? I missed out on that but I remember friends
in high school getting the latest LP albums. I do have that Beatles VI Album still.
I'm sure some kids today don't have a clue what an LP is, let alone a '45'.
A lot of you will remember Josephine, the Lady Plumber, from commercials on TV.
Here are some great gift ideas for someone on your list - in 1966.
And how about making some pretty macaroni ornaments for your tree?
Here's a fun craft idea with yarn and felt.
There are always great recipes every month. These pages actually had holes
already punched out so you could put the recipe in your cook book!
And here is the back cover. Something we never see today.
A healthy looking couple enjoying a cigarette in the great outdoors.
Do you remember the Marlboro man?
Those were the days my friends.
I'm glad some things have changed but not the prices! Wow!
I hope you enjoyed this view back to Christmas 1966.
I would like to thank you all for your visits and kind comments on my
recent posts. I appreciate each one of you so much.
Have a wonderful week.
I'll be back tomorrow for Tea Time Tuesday.
