SATURDAY TIDBITS — A POTPOURRI OF CHILDHOOD MEMORIES — DEC. 22

Maybe it was finding this image on Pinterest, or perhaps it was just the nostalgia that creeps into my mind during the holiday season.

But this morning a name from the past circled around in my brain and lodged there.  So I had to Google it.

And what do you know?  The childhood magazine that we subscribed to and for which I eagerly waited once a month is not in circulation, but there are copies of those vintage periodicals.

Wee Wisdom.  Does anyone else recall that?  Is there anyone else in the blogosphere as old as I am?  lol

This one is an issue from 1953, from an Etsy shop.

My favorite parts were the stories.  And the paper dolls.

I’m tempted to send off for it, but one of the things I know for sure (to quote Oprah), is that sometimes when we revisit the past, the reality of it from our present day perspective casts a kind of jaded aura upon it.  Those beautiful moments don’t often live up to our memories, considering how far we’ve come since those days.

So perhaps I’ll just let it lie.  And think about it.  I did bookmark the page, though.  What would you do?

    • I don’t know why I thought about it, Patty; it was like a flash of memory. Perhaps, as I mentioned, it was seeing the vintage Christmas image that triggered it. The memory took me back to the old fig tree I used to climb when I wanted to read without interruption…lol

  1. Fabulous! Sorry…Lucy pushed my hand…I had a monthly magazine, too that I loved but it was not that one…I loved it so much I carried the copies around with me and wouldn’t let my sister touch them!
