Advert Giveaway

I just recently moved to Boston. (YEA!!) Anyway, while rummaging through my things I found an old advertisement of Max Factor cosmetics, starring Rita Hayworth. It came from a 1943 Good Housekeeping magazine. I found it on eBay and apparently forgot I had it. It is 11x8 and in a plastic sleeve.

If you would like this delightful advert for your collection of vintage goodies, please email me your name and mailing address. One winner will be drawn at random and deadline is Wed Oct 20, 12noon est. Thank you!!

I spent a leisurely afternoon at Boston's SoWa Vintage Market. I came across this lovely bureau, which caught my eye as 1) I recently moved and need some pretty pieces and 2) my apartment is very small so this was the perfect size and 3) they delivered!

Here is the bureau at home, and in better light. I purchased it from Hummingbird Antiques (781) 389-8911 and was told it was pre-1930. I haven't yet looked for markings, it is quite heavy. I like that it has small casters and wooden wheels. It's a soft buttercream color with chipping in all the right places revealing it was once painted mint green. I like it very much!

Kathy Griffin

From June 2010~ Kathy Griffin posed as a pinup for her 2010 Creative Emmy "For Your Consideration" ad that ran in the Hollywood Reporter. The tag reads "They don't give out an Emmy for 'Best Airbrushing' but if they did, I'd totally win." She looks super cute!!
