>Continuing with the Holiday posts, here’s the back cover from a Bella Hess catalog from an undated catalog from the19-teens. I just love the military influence of the lady’s ensemble in blue with the hat and coat! Nor forgetting the gentlemen there are handkerchiefs, neckties, and socks. Don’t you wish Christmas gifts still came is such lovely little boxes?
I thought the girl in hat and scarf was so cute that I took her apart from the rest and now have her as my Etsy icon. Isn’t she cute?

>And who wouldn't want silk socks in a fancy box?? Don't you just love these old ads? Ads today are so tacky- drink this beer and hot women will flock to you ;)Can't wait to see the new pattern!
