Calling All Girls

My husband’s grandma had this magazine in a chest full of many treasures, September 1948 issue. I’m not sure which is more entertaining, the articles or the ads.

And just in case you were curious, boys generally don’t like to go dutch.

    I really love Back to Eden. Some of the remedies are sooo simple. I don’t pull it out as often as I should though, ‘cuz then some of the remedies require a good herb stash.

    Wait… That didn’t come out right…. (((((HUGS))))) sandi

    Believe it or not, that is my mother on the cover of the September 1948 cover of Calling All Girls. She was a top fashion model and her name was Lilly Fernandez. I would be very interested in this magazine and any others that you may have Calling All Girls. Please feel free to contact me. I am pretty interested in the charm you made as well…you can imagine why! 🙂 Thanks so much!

    Thank you! The charm necklaces that you made for me and my sisters are just perfect! I plan to send them to my sisters for Mother’s Day along with your story! Thank you for touching our hearts with your gifts and talents! 🙂
