a bit of this, a bit of that

Welcome to Vintage Black Friday !!


It's been a while, life has been crazy
and I have not had a second to get anywhere close to a computer for a bit now!!

Missed visiting everyone...what's up...what's new...what's goin on????

Please visit our wonderful
Hostess for Vintage Black Friday, Jill from Gypsy Brocante.
If you have not been to her fabulous world of infinite creativity,
please take the time, you'll be glad you did!!

I thought that I would venture into the fitness world
for this Vintage Black Friday post, some pretty adorable stuff....
....makes you want to get off the couch and shake your groove thang!!

Could you imagine skiing with this
gorgeous full skirt and bustier....oh how times have changed

This looks like one of the first
Pilates machines....stretch thatbody

I really have not any clue as to the
usefulness of this contraption.
I guess you can flatten your stomach at the
same time as plumping up the derriere.
Anyway, love the scrollwork on the units.

Is this young man exercising his arms

or flagging down a bus ???

We all remember the sand being kicked

in the poor little scrawny boys direction,

this is the ad that would grace all of the comics.
Get a load of the name of the
company 'Charles Atlas'...seriously, were we
ever that gullable.....I guess we still are,
we just buy our supplies from the televsion and online now.

I love the jodpurs on this very stylish golfer,
see the guy behind him smoking a pipe....love it

WOW....the protection for football
wasn't much protection at all, but he looked good

Love these tennis stars,

hope their hats didn't fly off during a lob or
that sweet lass did not take a tumble with her long skirt

Have a Fantastic Evening Everyone !!

Hugs xOxO Nerina :)
