Love this. In December 1916, my grandpa was a newborn baby! On Christmas Day he was 2 weeks old! ❤️❤️
It must have been so difficult for parents to have a newborn who was born in the winter back in the days before central heating. I wonder how they kept the baby warm.
That’s a great question. They were in northern Iowa, too, which has some pretty fierce winters. I may ask his sister, she’s 97. ❤️❤️
Merry Christmas. Thank you for always sharing such wonderful treasures from the past! 🎄🎄🎄

Merry Christmas!! I just had to mention you in my latest post on soups….how delicious your post are…no doubt you’ll make others hungry too!

I’ve given many food baskets through the years, but never thought of them as baskets of dainties. Lovely ad. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Sheryl.
“Dainties” is such a lovely, yet quaint description. 🙂

Love this ad from 100 years ago. Especially because my grandpa was born on December 11, 1916 and he would’ve been 2 weeks old on Christmas Day.
December is a month full of birthdays in our family. Little Bit’s and mine, my other grandpa’s in 1921, my dad’s, and my sweet nephew Seth has a birthday today!
Thank you Miss Sheryl, for letting me share your post. Seeing it filled my heart with joy and smiles. Happy holidays to you and your family!
You’re very welcome. It’s always wonderful when someone enjoys one of my posts enough that they want to reblog it. Happy holidays!
It’s easy for me to want to share your amazing blog with my readers. You post some really great things. 🙂 Hope you have a great New Year’s.

I hope that you had a great Christmas. Happy New Year!
Thanks, dear Sheryl! xxx

Thanks for the kind wishes. Happy New Year!
I love vintage advertisements. They has so much charm.
It’s nice to hear that you enjoyed this advertisement.
My family used to collect them, especially ones about Coke.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year!🎉

Amen! Same to you and yours.
Merry belated Christmas, Sheryl. I’m sure your Christmas was filled with lots of sweet treats. Have a great New Year.
