Dazzling delight

I recently purchased a copy of Woman's Day magazine from 1951. The thing is just a wealth of information (the children's clothing patterns posted the other day are from the same magazine, as well as a few other posts).

Some of the most precious finds in here are the ads. Like this one for cake flour that states:
"Just watch his eyes sparkle when you bring on this posy-decked dazzler."
Boy, would it were so simple, eh?

I posted some to the Flickr pool, but they were pretty gross.

One of the ads was a platter of hot dogs. (Yuck!)
