Volkswagon And Coca-Cola Memories

My blog today is a trip of childhood memories that came back to me when I saw this toy Volkswagen bug at the flea market. My uncle had a few Volkswagen bugs that I would get to ride in sometimes. 

Then the Coca-Cola ads came to mind when they used the song " I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing".  The bee's on the Volkswagen reminded me of the words in the song "Grow apple trees and honey bees". My dad and I found these ads from the back of a National Geographic Magazines when we were collecting them.  I thought this picture fit with my memories.

I added this Coca-Cola ad also because of what I could see of the car in it a lot of our cars growing up kind of looked like this one.

  1. One of my favorite things about going to antique and thrift stores is the delightful trip down memory lane when I find something that I associate with my childhood. I LOVE the coca cola song that you mentioned.
    Thank you so much for sharing these treasures at my Show & Tell party. I'm delighted to have you!

  2. Hi Denise!

    Welcome to the party! I think the best part about spending time at an antique/thrift store is seeing all the things that remind us of times gone by. All those items have a story attached to them... I don't think I can ever leave without buying something.

    Thanks for sharing at my party :)
