Is It "Cool"?

I found this vintage ad in my 1951 Life magazine.
The question is, "Was it a really cool and modern idea?" {pardon the cool play on words} or "Was it a really lame idea that flopped right away; an invention disaster?" I sure have never seen such a thing up close and personal!

My big housewife accomplishment this morning (besides multiple loads of wash) was to totally empty out the refrigerator and remove the drawers and shelves and scrub it all.

I am proud to say while throwing out some items that fit into the let's not keep this anymore category, I only found 1 science project type food item. You know,the forgotten left-overs container, the kind that gets pushed back behind the jars of this and that and begins to grow pretty fuzzy colors?

When I loaded it back up with everything that was fortunate enough to make the cut and closed the door, I had a freakish sense of satisfaction with myself. I also thought of this vintage ad and knew I had to show it to you.

A great big hello and thank you to everyone that has stopped by to say "Hi!

Hi Amy. I laughed out loud about your refrigerator cleaning. We always call our 'surprise' dishes 'science experiments' and my hubby has to dump them. My stomach was just not cut out for gross stuff.
As long as you're feeling so ambitious I think that you should make a pitstop here before heading off to Betty's house.
Glad to hear that the bunnies are doing well. I bet they're darling!
