While perusing a March 1969, Better Homes and Gardens magazine I saw some advertisements for items that I had forgotten about.
|March 1969 issue that I purchased |
from an estate sale for 25¢.
I had forgotten while growing up my mother purchased toilet paper with designs and in pastel colors similar to and including some of these.
|Plant Lady Scott's fresh flowers in your bathroom|
and watch it burst into bloom. In Venetian Pink,
Persian Blue, Emerald Green and Antique Gold.
A garland of colors by Lady Scott.
|I have never heard of Aurora bathroom tissue.|
Aurora's softness, delicate scent and beauty, has
a sensible white inner ply under a pretty pastel
outer ply that they will insist on having every time.
|Kleenex Boutique Collection.|
Four pow! pow! pow-erful ways to glow.
Hot Pink, Bold Gold, True Blue,
and Avocado Green.
|I don't remember ever seeing the Avocado Green|
in our bathroom, thank goodness.
|Love the gold angel holding up the blue tissue.|
|Colored tissue was around sine the late 1950's.|
Love how the bathroom tissues matches her towels
and her dress. We never used Soft-Weve.
|These elegant ladies matched their tissue|
to their stunning night gowns.
|I see the bathroom tissue, but where is the toilet?|
This is an ad from Better Homes and Gardens, 1956.
Did you have colored bathroom tissue at your house when you were growing up. What color tissue did your mom use?
