Tag Tuesday and some Vintage Images

Good morning. It's tag Tuesday again, and I have a tag of sorts ready. Yesterday was really cool here, but the weather men have promised that the weather is going to warm up from today - but before we get excited, it's going to pour as well. But it will be warm rain. And it should get cold again in time for the weekend - lovely prospects!
I went out yesterday, as I had an appt at the doctor's. I found some very ancient shoes it my cupboard, which I managed to squash my feet into to, so didn't have to go in my old slippers. But it was still painful, although when not squashed into a shoe, it does feel better. But the best thing was the wonderful feeling of relief when I got home and kicked my shoes into the corner....
At Tag Tuesday the theme this week is baking. I leafed through one of my old volumes of the 'Housewife's Magazine' from 1899 and found some nice adverts and images. I chose a very serious one from Dr Oetker's Baking Powder - still on sale today! The ad has a black frame round it, which reminds me of the cards they send here when somebody has died. I glued the image to a piece of scrap card, and framed it with some golden paper lace usually used to put round cakes. As the husband is sitting there reading instead of praising his wifey for baking him such a nice 'Rodon' cake, I added a text to show what she is thinking, 'If I'd have known he'd be reading I'd have burnt the cake, burnt the cake, burnt the cake....' The German text underneath the ad says that Dr Oetker baking powder only costs 10 Pfennigs and can be used instead of yeast, and gives an unbeatable flavour. And if you only use this brand, your cakes will always be successful. You can get free recipes from good firms and from the chemist too! I suppose it used to be a commodity which was sold at the chemist's.


The following images are all food related, and you are very welcome to download and use them.

  1. Warm rain? Things are looking up!!!!

    It was cold enough here yesterday to put a match to the fire! We were meant to be going out but I crocheted granny squares, played scrabble and generally lazed about instead. The sun did come out for a bit in the afternoon so we walked to the shop for a bit of fresh air.....

    I love how you have used the band that normally goes around the cake for your background.

    Such fantastic images.

    Hope your toe is soon back to normal.
