Sweet Vintage Baby Things

A couple weeks ago, I had a campaign with Huggies so Mom and I were looking up baby stuff on Pinterest. I've just hired her as my Research Assistant and Creative Consultant and she did such a great job of finding fun vintage diaper things (like this 1950s diaper pail) that I thought I'd put together a fun round up for Pink Saturday!

This adorable box of Ivory Flakes sold on Etsy recently. It would be cute to decorate a laundry room with. Mom says, "Vintage Ivory Flakes Soap, 1960's. Clothes washed in this and line dried smelled soooooo wonderful!"

Betsy Wetsy was one of the most popular 'drink and wet' dolls of the Baby Boom era, originally issued by the Ideal Toy Company of New York in 1935. Says Mom, "I had one of these and I just loved her to the moon and back."

Aren't these diaper pins the cutest ever? I want some and I don't even cloth diaper!

Mom says, "Boiling diapers with baby on the table in 1943. We have come along way as far as (thoughts about) safety and all diaper types."

Look at this sweet diaper pail someone listed on eBay a few years ago. I want one!

Diaper bags in the '60s had to be gargantuan to fit in all those bulky cloth diapers, plastic pants, and...what else? Fill me in, readers!

The washer this woman is sitting at is not all that surprising to me---I've seen ones like it before. What is surprising to me is that she's sitting at it. Is this authentic? Something tells me no... Ha!

Here's a fun video featuring "tape on Pampers". Yikes!

The Song Movie: Inspired by Song of Solomon

Have you all heard about the new Christian movie, The Song, that hits theaters this weekend? Based on the Bible's Song of Solomon, this newest feature from City On a Hill tells the story of breakout music star, Jed, his wife, Rose, and their struggles when Jed's love song to Rose becomes a hit.

The movie takes place right here in the South and should really appeal to those who love American music and the dream of hitting it big as an indie artist. 

The movie's website also features lots of resources for couples, churches, and small groups.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the makers of this film bring a message of hope and redemption to the very real threat Christian marriages face in America today. The Song opens in theaters Friday, September 26th.

Check out videos and music from the movie at thesongmovie.com.
