Mrs Lifecruisers contribution to theme Lost
Magazine Ad from Husmodern 1923
This is an Ad from an old women magazine in Sweden called Husmodern (Housemother).
The text below the child says:
“Look how much water and I who have forgotten Sister Ellas children soap at home!”
I found it in a year book of the magazine Husmodern, at the elderly home where my Mom lives. It did belong to someone that lived in this elderly home, but has passed away.
Conclusion: This is a child from a lost time who have lost the soap. The owner of this book is lost too. My digital camera lost it’s battery power while taking the shot, so I lost my mind ;-)

NOTE: Every comment is equally welcome, even if you’re not participating in this Photo Hunt-thing, we LOVE all comments :-)

    My LOST picture is up for today too. I had a time with this one but you will see why MY PICTURE has a LOST problem too…Sandy

    Lifecruiser: That sounds interesting, so it making me curious :-)


    That is a terrific old ad, and a great take on this week’s theme, on many levels. Nice job!

    Thanks for your kind words Mitey Mite. I’m glad you enjoyed it :-)


    Ooouu I’m first! (maybe). Great job on the lost theme! My pictures are pretty lame this week. But oh well I played.

    Worked late last night for our project cutover! You know what that’s like. It is almost two weeks long our cutover. This weekend is bringing the new system up with all the bolt-on applications. Next weekend is deleting all the data in the new system that is not needed by the new company. Ah…it’s been a fun project…NOT! I’m tired and need some downtime. :|

    Lifecruiser: Sorry, not first :-) Just me that is late to apporve the comments. I’ve been out seeing other inteerst things that you’ll know about in a later post… Ah, projects, the word is giving me the shiver… *lol*

    Wystful1 UNITED STATES said:

    excellent choice, and great interpretation.
    Happy weekend Lifecruiser!!!!
    (mine’s posted)

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Wystful1. I hope your weekend is as great as ours :-)

    heather UNITED STATES said:

    I love the interpretation. This one has had a lot of variety. :)

    Lifecruiser: Thanks. Yes, maybe this one was a real imagination starter :-)

    eph2810 UNITED STATES said:

    I so enjoy your picture for this week’s theme. I also like your added text to it as well. I loose my mind a lot too :)…
    Have a wonderful weekend in Sweden. Hope the weather is not too bad yet.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I love old things. Well, the weather is grey, but at least no rain or snow - yet, so we’ll have to be pleased with that :-)

    eija FINLAND said:

    Heh, so you multiplied the theme :D
    I love those old magazines - I’m old enough to get some “good-old-times”-vibes from them…
    Mine’s posted too.

    Lifecruiser: Well, I just love them because they start my imagination of how it were back then. somehow that’s more fascinating for me than imagine the future because this has really happened. The future feels so unreal.

    Leslie UNITED STATES said:

    This was such a tough theme for me. You did something really interesting with it. I love the glimpse of a “lost time.”

    Lifecruiser: Thanks. Yes, it both can be easy or tough, this weeks theme, depending on what oppertunity you have to take pictures of something that touches the subject.

    Chana CANADA said:

    i love old pictures. it takes us to a far away world of things gone by..oh the memories are just precious..

    hope you are having a great wknd and i read what you wrote in happy and blue 2 of things you can’t live imagination works just fine, so i hope Mr. Lifecruiser takes many vitamins, lol..

    you guys are both so lucky to be so much in love, ahhh, now go and have fun, ;p

    Lifecruiser: I love old pics too. It’s so fun trying to imagine how it were back then. And to see how things have evolved from there! Yes, this weekend is going so great… A little exhausting… not only from Love ;-)


    You are really good at picking great pictures for the Photo Scavenger Hunt..

    Lifecruiser: Thank you H&B2, I’m glad you think that. Hm… Maybe you just think that because you’re as [insert own word choice here] as we are…? *lol*


    That is a great shot! Thanks so much for sharing that. I love old magazine ads. Mine’s up too.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks :-) Me too!

    Teena CANADA said:

    Ha! Great interpretation!!

    Mine’s up too :)

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Teena :-)

    Melli UNITED STATES said:

    LOL! Sounds like you and your story are all a lost cause! But that has GOT to be one of the cutest ads I’ve ever seen! (love those little nakey butts!)

    Lifecruiser: I think so too, I wanna squeeze it :-)

    pamela UNITED STATES said:

    Now that is being a true Lifesaver Lifecruiser! :) Way to come through in a pinch. I need to check my batteries as well. I love the cute picture! Take Care! :) :eek:

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Pamela. Me to :-) Take care you too and have a wonderful weekend.

    Chi UNITED STATES said:

    hahaha…lost of lost things, huh? Love the photo! *s*

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Chi and welcome back, we missed you :-)


    That is a lot of “lost” in one small post. I am enjoying all the interesting interpretations of the theme this week. Yours is something very different. It’s not often (okay never) that I see old ads from foreign magazines. ;-)

    Lifecruiser: No, it’s not often I see it either, so I enjoy it the more when I do :-)

    Carmen UNITED STATES said:

    Well, if you find your mind, which you lost, would you maybe look for mine there, too? :) I seem to have misplaced my mind as well. ha

    Lifecruiser: So, you wanna sneak on my search for it hah? *lol* Maybe I’ll keep it if I find it, I may find your mind better than mine….


    Nice nostalgic pic!
    I like it.

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Lynn. I think it’s so cute with the baby butt :-)

    Gattina BELGIUM said:

    Nice conclusion ! I would rather say he lost his slip and himself. Or is he looking for a fish ? :-)

    Lifecruiser: Thanks :-) Or his Mom maybe?

    mar SPAIN said:

    Love the little one pictured and your story! well done! enjoy your weekend (yes, hate to tell you but we are still over 20ºC … I love it this way, when it’s not hot anymore, just pleasant. Sending sunshine your way :-)

    Lifecruiser: Thank you Mar, but NOT for the weather report. I hate that. It’s not fair! I wanna have 20ºC too, but I thank for trying to send me sunshine. The sun is trying, but there is yet too much clouds. Maybe it will have a break through later today….

    Mandy NETHERLANDS said:

    Lost the soap! Oh nooo I have a few stories to tell about losing the soap (believe me you do not want to know) LOL. Great pic Mrs Lifecruiser.. as always x


    Lifecruiser: Thanks Mandy, but you’re making me VERY curious of those “believe me you do not want to know-lost soap” stories! Hm…

    Kdubs UNITED STATES said:

    Great twist!!!!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Kdubs :-)

    Tricia CANADA said:

    I love the explainations that you write for your photos. :-) You’re too cute … just like that old photo too. I love finding old photographs and old advertizements - especially if they have the prices in them because it’s fun to see how little some things cost way back when.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Tricia. As I love to read yours and especially your garden posts that always is excellent! You’re right there, I do wish that this Ad had mentioned the price too. It couldn’t have cost much at 1923.

    deb UNITED STATES said:

    Love your sense of humor :-)
    That’s such a cute picture!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I love the baby butt and the fact that it shows that baby fat still is there :-)

    Rose CANADA said:

    I’m not playing, but I love old pictures. Drop by and take part in my question of the week.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, they are so fun. I’m coming over later :-)

    Lorna FINLAND said:

    fun picture …

    Lifecruiser: And cute :-)

    Ma UNITED STATES said:

    That is so neat to find an old magazine clipping.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I love those old ones :-)


    That is cute and I can almost read it too!
    Isn’t that little behind just the cutest thing?
    (who cares about soap as long as the water’s fine! *S*)

    Ha’ en go’ uge
    Knus fra

    Lifecruiser: Yes, that’s why I loved this one at once. Too cute! Jag önskar dig detsamma :-)
