1967 Home Beautiful


Yes, it DID cost only 25c! There is an ad in the magazine promoting a 12 month subscription for only $2. Wow.


I think this room is just so completely sexy... Yum!


These lights are priced from $7.05... I'd take ten! SO pretty.


Ah - 60's food styling... my goodness. I just love that little reindeer.


A Christmas shopping guide. I adore the little doll on the right.




Several years ago a friend gave me about a dozen Australian Home Beautiful magazines dating from the late 50s to the late 60s. What a score! They are very, very precious to me. I thought I'd share a few images from the December 1967 issue with you today. It's full of total gems, it was hard to pick out just a few. I will definitely share with you all some images from the other editions in the near future... Enjoy!
