Fortunate Finds: Danger Points in Your Home, June 1942

Today is the last day of June (where does the time go?).  I have been going through some of my papers and found this edition of the Los Angeles Times Home section from June 14, 1942 that I picked up at an estate sale last year:

One of the articles in the insert is "Danger Points in Your Home" that features a cute series of educational cartoons:

There were many, many written tips in this article that we've all heard before.  But here's a familiar one for you sewists and crafters out there:  "Put your scissors or knife down before walking to another room; avoid carrying pencils, thumbtacks, collar buttons, and pins in your mouth"!   Guilty as charged.


  1. Guilty here too. And then I lay the scissors somewhere and have to cuss all over the place trying to find 'em!

  2. A fab find, thank you for sharing the great peek inside the magazine.

  3. Cute find! I do just about all of those things! Thanks for linking up to Share the Love Wednesday--hope you'll be back this week!
