ATC_The year I was born


ATC_The year I was born

I had such a laugh reading this article in the May addition of the Housekeeping Monthly.

I wonder how many women actually did all this although I do remember my Mum doing some of these :)

This is just a selection of some of the things a GOOD WIFE should be doing in 1955 :)

I used BMU_Yesteryear



    Oh, this is so funny - I laughed too! Great ATC Jane.. I love your photo and the article excerpt. I always laugh watching the old TV shows here and how the wife is so subservient to the husband.
    Great job! :)
    Oh, goodness...that really is too funny! Love the vintage feel of your card, and that picture is a hoot!
    What a hoot! Love the high heels! I think my Mom was working full-time in 1955, but she did manage to make dinner from scratch every night. How, how, how? Cute ATC.
    "...try to understand his world of strain and pressure..."

    :rofl:

    Great card, Jane!
    Oh my ... Is that June Clever in the photo?? Just kidding!! But I think she and Harriet Nelson were the poster mom/wife!! Cute card, Jane!!
    There is no way I would have made a good wife in 1955! I love this, though and that collection is prefect for it!
    "...offer to take his shoes off." Yeah, and then bean him with them. This is just too funny, but I know a lot of women did this. My Aunt Rose for one. She was a housewife, not a 'stay at home mom'. I've been watching Father Knows Best reruns and I love how Jane Wyatt was the perfect Mom and is right up there with June Clever and Harriet Nelson. Love the card.
