Vintage Advertisement Images to Share and More...

Here are some wonderful advertisements that I've found around the Internet.  I thought I'd share them for Pink Saturday and Think Pink Sunday.

Most of them I got from the Graphic Fairy, but some I got from other places.

Here they are:  You are free to copy these for your own.














I was inspired by finding this Ad with the woman smoking and the dream man in the background.  Up until recently, smoking ads were romantic, clever, funny and innocent.  Here are a few examples of those:







Here are two blog posts that share the same stories:

Ok I know this started about about innocent ads, but advertising can be potent.  It's interesting how time and the more we know changes our views on things (like cigarettes) in the world.  I'm glad that there are stricter laws about smoking.  I'm sure I've had enough, 2nd hand smoke, in my life time.

Wow, that is so true. Although I hate to have to many laws, I am thankful for that one.

Happy Pink Saturday!

The labels are pretty. I think the Strawberry label is my favorite....yes, it's interesting to look back at the tobacco ads and how they portrayed such innocence about smoking. Time took care of that, didn't it?

Pink Sparkles for your week,

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains.

If you know of any please share. Cheers!
