Original ad text reads:
Morgan-Jones makes the bedspread that makes the room. 
Morgan-Jones designs Gingham Daisy for town and country people. People charmed by the pastoral beauty of bigger-than-life wildflowers planted on a field of all-American checks.

You start making the room when you make the bed with Gingham Daisy. Morgan-Jones makes it richly fringed in King, Queen, Full and Twin sizes in Gold, Blue, Black, and Emerald. Also, 82"x36" draperies, 73"x11" valance, 72" table round. Full and Twin, about $12.98. Slightly higher in the West.

From the clipping files: Late 1960s or early 1970s Family Circle article on paper jewelry designs by designer Kathryn Stoll


Original article text reads:
It's instant... it's easy... it's paper jewelry 
And it's yours for the making. Glazed gift-wraps in flash-bright colors, plus rubber cement, are the low-cost basic. Add double-face cellophane tape for sticking power, and you're all set for your paperwork. Designer Kathryn Stoll came up with these crisp twists. She likes her party curls (left) the most because they're both flattering and fun (and hit-of-the-party insurance as well). To get free instructions for making these new-as-now baubles, send a self-addressed business-size envelope, stamped, to Family Circle, Dept. 238, Box 1379, Grand Central Sta., New York, NY 10017

Inch-wide paper strips backed with shiny color (a second rubber-cemented strip) are the couldn't-be-simpler components of these bold new rings. You'll make them in loop-the-loop time, won't mind tossing them out after a few wearings because a half dozen more are at your fingertips. Create a special look with any of the five designs shown, or do your own takeoffs.

From the clipping files: 1970s Reigel Sleepwalker pajamas advertisement


Original ad text reads:
"Thank goodness, she was hip enough to get me a Riegel Sleepwalker of DuPont's 100% Orlon acrylic in this crazy new print." 
Sleepwalker also comes in the new hot range of colors: lemon peel, blueberry, orange crush, raspberry and huckleberry. 
And two new, un-icky print, Humdinger and Bear Blossoms. 
Plus something no one has ever had: DuPont's 100% Orlon acrylic fabric to make it softer than any blanket sleeper has every been. 
Naturally, the Sleepwalker is warm, washable, and has a non-stick nylon zephyr zipper and Riegel's exclusive non-skid Plastic-Dot Safe-Sole. 
And comes in small, medium, large and extra large. 
Why are we so soft with these kids, giving them Sleepwalker, Softsorb diapers, quality knit underwear and such? 
It's our contribution to a bridge over the generation gap.
