VINTAGE FOOD ADS ...

Gardens here are currently full of these Birds of Paradise (Strelitzia Regina).
If you look very closely, you can see a fly and weeds new shoots!










Linked to Scenic Weekends, Shadow Shot Sunday, Straight out of the Camera Sunday, Our Beautiful World, Monday Mellow Yellows, Blue Monday, Our World Tuesday, Ruby Tuesday, Outdoor Wednesday, Macro Monday2, I heart Macro and Alphabe-Thursday where *M* is for:

I love anything vintage so these particular ads caught my attention:










And, finally, thank you to all our dear readers who visited or commented.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY ON FRIDAY 14th!

Enjoy!

XOXO NORA & LOLA:)

What beautiful flowers! I think they would be fun to grow, but I don't think they would like my winters.

Hahaha! I LOVE all these old ads! I have a set of dessert dishes with ads on them.

When we lived in Tucson, I had a strelitzia with blue flowers. Wish I could have brought it with me.

That was fun!
Bird's custard is a staple in my pantry, to this day.

Betty said...

I like vintage too and enjoyed seeing those old ads. Does anyone drink Ovaltine any more? Do they still make it? I remember having it as a child.

I love the bird of paradise flower. I wish you a lovely weekend!

I saw the fly, but I couldn't quite see its shadow! ;)

Ruth Kelly said...

It looks life a very muddy pond in your shadow shot.

Ralph said...

These 'birds' are lovely, their plumage and beaks offer us a stylish being in either flora or fauna...love the old ads, especially the one from one cat to another. Although fish is probably more nutritious for felines than milk. IMO, as of course I am not a cat :)

Unsure about the health benefits of blackcurrant juice. Unless fortified by vodka or champagne? The promises of any or all of these products are maybe lust a little bit exaggerated in those days of yore!

Hello Lola,

The Bird of Paradise was a favorite bloom of my aunt. These are outstanding examples, and yes, I spotted the fly! Thanks for sharing.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

I love birds of paradise ... so different and so lovely. I really enjoyed the vintage ads. Fun!

Hannah said...

The Birds of Paradise flowers are stunning, and so floriferous! They really do look like bird's heads. I enjoyed all your old vintage food labels too.

The B O P is such a beauty!! I have one lone plant, and it's so dense it rarely blooms. Yours on the other hand is just filled with gorgeousness.
