Watch Out for Ghosts

A funny vintage Halloween wish...on a postcard...

There's a ghost around here
And you better shoo it--
I've got something to do
But I'm scared to do it!

Hurry and join me

I am not sure what this lovely lady is doing or why we should join her.  Notice the lovely creature around her neck.  A nice vintage black and white photo postcard - with a little age-wear.

Big Black Rooster & Little Brown Hen

A saucy little poem...
Says the Big Black Rooster to the lIttle Brown Hen,
"You Haven't Laid and Egg Since the Lord Knows When."
Says the Little Brown Hen to the Big Black Rooster
"You Don't Come Around as Oftern as You 'Us'd ter.'"

Not quite like one of Mother Goose's poems.  Watch out for that flirty hen on this charming illustration.

We grow 'em big!

Another great harvest shot - perfect for fall.  They sure liked their big vegetables!

Are you looking for a Halloween costume idea?
Perhaps one of these crazy costumes will fit the bill.  This is a vintage, hand colored postcard from Germany.  Not sure what the text says.  Can anyone translate?  Not sure what they are doing.  Any ideas?

A little bit country

I love this 50's lady.  Where can I get a hat like that?
Wondering what I do with these old postcards?  Take a look here to see what I did with this 50's cowgirl...  one unique use for old postcards.

I'm nuts about this place

A colorful rendition of a squirrel - makes me think of fall.  Although the squirrels in my neighborhood aren't as cute as this one when they're digging up my garden.

On the flip side

And on the flip side of yesterday's potatoes....

You, too, can order the FREAKS for your very own city!  Great example of and advertising postcard.

More big food...

Just take a look at those potatoes...
I guess they grow them big in Indiana.  A great card!

Crazy Old Men!  This vintage photo by E. E. Russell captures these crazy old men, perhaps they're an earlier rendition of  ZZ Top.

Help me, add a caption:

Grasshopper Cowboy

Ride 'em Cowboy!  One of many postcards showing ridiculously large insects, animals, or foods.  Another old one!

Happy Fall

Lovely lady, lounging in the pumpkin patch holding her basket of apples.  What could be more natural?  (Again, the 1950's?)  I do love fall, crisp air, beautiful colors, bountiful harvest!
