Had a good laugh at the burnt beer one!

Hey Pepper, been meaning to email you - not enough time in the day at the moment. Thank you for nominating me for an award. I was really chuffed you think so highly of my blog. It means a lot, sometimes I feel a bit like I'm feeling around in the dark - still a lot of learning and experimenting. So a big THANK YOU to you for thinking of me. xx

Those kids look really freaked out... I Love the drama in the Schlitz Beer add and the Victor Phosphates for leavening, I just had to research... What a spiel! I used to have an ad from the same period for DDT which showed mum and dad spraying children's beds etc in this "safe" product. I think it got so cruddy i could have chucked it!

I can't pick which one freaks me out the most... they kind of all have me mesmerized.


ps- pity you couldn't make it down on the weekend, i think it was pretty successful so hopefully they will do it again very soon!
