Several years ago I got some 1950's Life magazines from my Grandmother's estate.
Looking though them I found these fun Jello ads, "When I'm eating Jello I wish I were..."
Unfortunately, over time they have faded quite a bit from their former glory. I thought about going through the magazines and getting other ads but then I know those will just fade too.
Enter the 1953 Deko wall paper book with "Non-Fading Colors"! This was also at my grandmothers house. She kept it out in the wood shed and I remember looking through it at admiring all the patterns and colors. She had always said that we would use it for some project but that never seemed to happen. I drug it out of the garage today and picked out 8 samples and reused the same Jello frames.
The colors are much bolder than the faded Jello ads.
They really brighten up the stairway.
J said the cowboy was his favorite.
Luckily there was a hunt scene to balance it out.
I was hoping for some mid century modern patterns but only found mid century, no modern. I think this would have made Grandma happy.
