Home Arts Magazine July 1936



I thought this was such a sweet illustration on the cover of the vintage Home Arts magazine from 1936. And I also wanted to get this posted before July is over!  Even 77 years ago kids and pets drew an audience, didn't they.




What a darling little hat!
And no flip flops?

Ten cents. Hmmmm.

I hope to get to your blogs later today. Right now I have three young grandsons who'd like me to hook up my laptop to the TV so they can watch SpongeBob. Normally I would suggest playing outdoors, but we're having a great rain, even as I write...

Look at the shoes! Remember we thought their little feet needed support as they grew. Love the vintage top, the hat, the little outfit. Just brought a smile today!

Now that is fantastic! I love stepping back into the past like this. Thanks for posting this, Judy!

That is a cute photo. I'm glad you shared!

Sandra said...

love that cover and i had shoes like that and my boys had a top like that and they would NOT let me play with it...you are right, kids and pets have always been a draw for people

How sweet! And I love that soap...I use it on my face! It's so mild and lathers up nicely! Enjoy your day and fun shows on TV! heehee!

Donna said...

Nowadays, kids would expect that top to come equipped with batteries and remote control. LOL! Ah, the good old days were quite wonderful.

The rain is very welcome here too, but it's still very warm. Our grass is very scorched from the heatwave. Shame the rain stops the kiddies from playing outside. Plenty to keep them occupied indoors these days. :-)

I love that cover!! So adorable!! Have tons of fun with your grandkids!!

Judy S. said...

How fun! I am dying to know what kind of patterns are inside. (Vintage, for sure!) And check the price! To think you could have all that for a dime.

Ruth Kelly said...

No crocs either!

Carla TePaske said...

And no flip flops...how funny. And do you know how many foot injuries are caused by those silly flip flops. I get goose bumps watching kids play sports wearing them.

Terri D. said...

A great vintage work of art, for sure! Enjoy those boys!

Love Home Arts magazines! Darling cover. You are right, who can resist children and kittens!

Diane said...

That is really cute-- like the price too!

Susie said...

No flip-flops..LOL I think those are for the beach or shower...not for walking in everyday. It's a cute little cover...worthy of framing. xoxo,Susie

Here's to a good time with the grandchildren, and rainy days.

Hi That is a lovely image and it brings back happy memories as I had a spinning top just like that one and loved playing with it.

Trace4J said...

Oh I love it.
Simple and so sweet.
I've had my granny's too.
Now I need a long nap.

So sweet. I remember that they use to make giant tops for children. At least them seemed giant when one is little. I don't know if it was originally mine or my parents' top. Of course I completely forgotten until I saw this image. So lovely.

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

That cover is adorable. You should frame it!

I like vintage images such as this. There is such an innocence to them.
