Aunt Jenny


Aunt Jenny was the ur-folksy face of Spry Baking Goo.  Gray-haired, double-chin'd,  and never having met a gerund she didn't drop.

She made an appearance in just about every women's magazine from the late 1930s until the early 1950s, when Crisco finally won the baking goo war.

Tuesday Song of the Week

First Tuesday Song of the Week in about a month, but it was worth waiting for:

'Caravan' - B. Bumble & the Stingers

The Star Made Me Buy It

Of all the star ads I've found in these old magazines in my possession, the star with the most ads is, for no reason I can figure out, Burgess Meredith.  

Here he is for Aqua Velva:
Do they still sell Aqua Velva?

Bag of the Week

This is one of my favorites.

And one which I hand-colored.  It came out real nice, I think.

The print was entitled 'The Parting Wreath,' inspired I think by the Victorian poem of that title.
