Delight and Things

a little peek at what delights me

These days most of the christmas wishlist toppers are things like ipods, ipads, and other igoodies. So it’s a bit refreshing to look at these vintage christmas ads that bring you back to a time when there were no ianythings to long for. From socks to pipes to cowboy boots, it seems christmas used to be about the simpler things in life – but glad to see that new year’s hasn’t changed. (That’s where Johnnie Walker comes in!!)

And in the spirit of using christmas for totally inappropriate marketing incentives… these are gold.
