voluminous mane of flaxen hair. And teeth.
These women hang out by the shower....on the wall.
They don't say much but they're in good moods because they smile all the time.
Maybe because they all look so pretty....
This girl's from November of 1943.
The calender came to me complete with all twelve months and in excellent condition. Each month is a different lady.
The calender belonged to my Grandparents.
See the Timken Bearing
slogan over there?
Some of the monthly calenders
have the slogan
"Miles of Smiles On Timken Bearings"
printed on them...
Other months have a picture of a bearing advertised on them.
I have all twelve months of this calender but only display six months at a time because the prints are large..16" x 20".
This print is the lady representing Miss January 1943.
Isn't she so pretty?
And look at that cheery yellow background,
And here we have Miss Timken Bearing For May 1943.
I like how her bow tie has been photo shopped on or whatever they called it back then.
Miss April 1943
looks like one of the
who were featured
on the calender.
She looks all of 28 years old.
I wish I could photoshop my cheeks to
look like hers every day.
My sister JoJo likes this one.
She put a post-it note on Miss February 1943 several years ago that said this girl's name was JoJo.
The post it note hung on this picture for several years until it fell off one day, so I guess we need to find Miss February a new name.
Oddly, in all twelve months of this calender, only two women are blonde. The rest of the models are redhead or brunette.
This lady is my favorite I think,
Miss March 1943
Look at all the beautiful colors used on these prints. And notice how all these models are dressed.
You don't find that level of business attire or modesty too often today, quite contrary in fact, yikes.
And then we have this lovely lady Miss November 1943. She looks like she was an office manager or maybe out assisting in union organizing or something.
The coloring of the cheeks, eyes, and lips and such are a hoot to see.
Seriously, who ever looks this perfect? Those eyes!
Oddly enough though, none of my family members have ever noticed
when the prints change out.
The color scheme on the other months are exactly like these prints; the soft purples, pinks, yellows, greens, blues.
One day I may display all 12 months on my limited bathroom wall space, I think I can squeeze them all in, just barely.
In the meantime, I just enjoy the six prints that are up.
below the vintage women prints is an old grocery store basket that makes a nice container for powder room essentials like lotions and such.
Do you like how I couldn't end this post without mentioning one of my collections? I am a sick person, I know.
I have more vintage pins that this.
It's just that I have a vintage hoarding problem.
I like the little gold airplane pin over there on the top left though.
Much prettier than today's red and blue plastic baskets.
Hey, thanks for looking at my pictures!
Football Friday Discussion is tomorrow and I think this weekend I will be posting about some pub food I made. And it certainly was not, uh, healthy.
Is pub food ever healthy? Guess that's why it's so darn good :):)
Have a good day today!!!
