I love those way-to-happy-to-be-real housewife images they used in the 50's for advertising. I'm pretty darn sure I never look so happy when I'm cooking or cleaning. I talked with Leslie over at Alpha Stamps about my obsession, and she was nice enough to create some great 50's housewife collage sheets and source some fun supplies. I decided to showcase my housewives in windowed tins: there's the angelic 50's housewife on the outside, but on the inside, the true snark shows through.


I am totally in love with that pie paper! Plus, all the little trinkets: the rolling pin, the tiny cookbook, and of course that nice bottle of red wine. I told my hubby that I was going to put a magnet on the back of this tin, and he could use it as a mood gauge. Lid on: happy wife, good dinner coming. Lid off: attitude adjustment needed, poor me a glass of wine and make some reservations!


Here's another deceptively sweet gal, who looks like she's ready to cook up something delicious, but actually, not:


In the original image, she held a grocery list. I altered her list a tad. Cheesy


Here they are, both in "lid off, watch out" mode. I think these two would be the best of friends.


Alpha Stamps has tons of great scrapbook papers, snarky housewife collage sheets, and miniature supplies for housewives, just search under "retro kitchen". cackle and I are hosting a Snarky Housewife Swap, so come join us!

You can see cackle's snarky bitches hereCheesy

I love the tiny ruffle curtain detail inside the second tin!  Such cute little details on both of them!
