I heard it once said that great speeches admire the past and glorify the future. In this way we’re reminded of our efforts, and given hope for what’s to come.
I think this is our nature. We hop-scotch between the warm fuzzies of “simpler times” and the wonder of what ten generations of iPhone will bring.
This thought struck as I got a text of “vintage” cereal boxes. (From a modern Target)
Doesn’t it just trigger something inside of you? A feeling of childhood; care-free days watching morning cartoons in your pajamas. I’m too young to even remember these boxes and I get that feeling!
So I began looking for more. I really just wanted to see the changing perceptions of Americans, but instead got caught up in all the beautiful vintage food ads. Here are some of the best I found.
Appreciate your past and be good to each other.
More vintage Coke ads or if you’d rather buy one check out the Kitchn Blog for some help.
Love the lifesavers one 🙂
