Cute? Creepy? You Decide

In browsing various collections of vintage images for my Easter crafts, I’ve come across many that creep me out. Times have changed and jokes are different, so maybe at one time these were considered cute or festive, but the only reason I saved them was to share with you. They give me the heebie-jeebies! This is the least creepy, although rabbits standing upright and dancing is very bizarro.An army of rabbits riding chickens? Why? This […]

Some Christmas-y Books

Some Christmas-y Books

I’m doing my own theme for Top Ten Tuesday this week, Christmas-themed stories. With the Ho Ho Ho Read-a-Thon beginning in two days, I thought I’d give folks some suggestions in case you’d like to participate but haven’t put together a list. It’s a five-day event, so you don’t need too many. I don’t usually read holiday themed books for any holiday, but last Christmas I was very Scrooge-ish, so I thought something early might get […]

Vintage Thingies Thursday: Memorial Day

With the Memorial Day weekend upon us, I thought some patriotic images might be appropriate for Vintage Thingies Thursday. I would never think to send a Memorial Day postcard myself, but a little souvenir card tucked into the corner of a mirror, or on the fridge with a magnet would be a nice reminder to be thankful for the men and women we have lost in battle. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a […]

Bizarro Vintage Easter Greetings

Welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday! In my search for the cute Easter images I shared with you last week, I came across many not-so-cute, and downright creepy vintage greetings. I shared a view weird ones last year for Blue Monday and Pink Saturday, and I think sharing weird vintage images for holidays may become a tradition here at the castle of the Evil Overlord. Here we have rabbits playing baseball. Now, baseball IS a spring […]

Welcome to Vintage Thingies Thursday, one of my favorite days of the week! Suzanne, our hostess from ColoradoLady invites you to join us with your flea market finds, basement treasures, and decorating delights!This week I have some cute vintage Easter cards. I like to use these images when I make my own cards or in scrapbooks, cutting out all the details. I don’t own any of these actual cards, they are all (supposedly) free images […]

Luck o’ the Irish

Can you believe it’s already March? For Vintage Thingies Thursday this week I’m going to share some new-to-me vintage St. Patrick’s images that you may like to print out and use to make cards or decorations. They all can be enlarged for copying. For something a little romantic, here’s a couple on a picnic. Maybe you could plan a romantic meal for your own leprechaun on the special day. I wouldn’t suggest corned beef and […]

Valentine’s Day from a Teacher’s Perspective

This month’s etsy bloggers carnival is hosted by foxygknits from Foxy G’s Den of i-KNIT-quity. I have been visiting her blog and this Atlanta gal is very funny, as well as having an awesome giveaway right now! The theme is a Valentine’s Day memory. I have one that’s a story I have told often. Let me set the stage… It’s 1991 in Spring, Texas. I’m teaching 4th grade at a very large elementary school, over […]

Let’s see what vintage goodies have come out of my parents’ basement this year!In the 1970s, those little tricksters were greeted by this great pumpkin on the front door of my parents’ house. It hung there for many years, as you can see from all the dried cellophane tape and […]

Sailing the Ocean Blue

Sailing the Ocean Blue

Happy Blue Monday with a Columbus Day theme! We all know that Columbus “sailed the ocean BLUE in 1492”, so I thought I’d share some Columbus information that was not widely known back in the day when I was learning about Columbus. All of these images have blue in them.In the late 15th century, most people no longer believed that the world was flat.Ferdinand and Isabella, the King and Queen of Spain did not actually […]
