    vintage happy housewives

    I wish I could forward these all to ELLEN for a good laugh on her show! These women are estatic over an ironing board? One clue? These are all drawings! Yes, I kid you not. I'm certain by some foolish man or if a woman, she was paid more than any man to draw them. Therefore, she would then put a smiling face on these imaginary women. Why not photos? You couldn't pay a woman enough to lie to other women!!!

    A portrait of a Mother and her seven daughters 1912...this grabbed me because you don't often see people in theses old photos that are beautiful by modern standards. These girls are unusually beautiful. I'm guessing which one is the mother, but I couldn't tell for sure.

    In a familiar scene that all of us can likely relate to, a 1940s woman (in a cute dress, I should point out - note the scalloped hem and sleeves) tackles the task of scrubbing the family bathtub yet again. #vintage #1940s #homemaker #housewife #cleaning
