Household November, 1952

    Newer Older

    I've been waiting to put this one up for an entire year. I found it among my vintage magazine collection right after Thanksgiving last year and was kicking myself for not finding it in time. But that's okay. The reasoning? The illustrator is listed as Lorraine Fox. Why am I happy about this? Because a reader of my blog got in touch with me earlier this year and told me that they found out that it was Ms. Fox who did the wonderful illustrations for that Better Homes & Garden Decorating Book I mentioned on my blog way back in 2005. The same illustrations that I used for inspiration for that Victory Vintage wall. One big illustrator mystery solved!

    Big thanks to Ashlee for her eagle eye.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

      This is wonderful! I love how the depth is just a bit "off".

      Um, Ward, doesn't the magazine title show "November, 1952?"
      Just sayin.
      Love it.

      Gah-- it was a late night when I was putting the deets on this image. Thanks for the heads up. Me getting old.

      I absolutely love it! Hope your Thanksgiving was as family and food oriented as the illustration is.
