VTT - Thanksgiving Ideals



Above is an old Thanksgiving postcard titled appropriately "Good Old Thanksgiving." This postcard was mailed 100 years ago in 1910.

Below is a 1966 Thanksgiving issue of of Ideals magazine with a pair of my turkey salt and pepper shakers. The shakers are marked Napco Ware Import Japan on a paper label.



The Thanksgiving issue of Ideals includes not only Thanksgiving, but also Halloween, harvest, and other seasonal fall subjects. Below are some of the pages. The "Home for Thanksgiving" painting and poem appeared opposite each other in a two-page spread. "The Patchwork Quilt" poem appeared on the right side of a two-page spread about quilting bees. The opposite page had another "The Quilting Bee" poem and a continuation of the same quilting bee illustration.

  8. Those are wonderful.

    Thank you very much for sharing them. My favorites is the first one, probably because it's so old but also the image is beautiful.

  11. I love your 1910 postcard you shared today. They are so charming.

    However, the Ideal magazine really thrills me. The old Ideals are so beautiful with there poems stories and illustrations. Always full of fabulous photos. I have some Christmas Ideals and I put them out every Christmas. Also a summer one that is so lovely. Lucky you to have a Thanksgiving one. I love the quilting bee pages.

    Wishing you happy festive days ahead.
    Hugs, Jeanne
