Here is an unusual Wacky; it is spoofing a credit card of all things. How many of you remember Master Charge as opposed to today's MasterCard? The name was changed in 1979, not too long after this Wacky came out.
Yes, I covered part of my 1970s signature with a little leaf. Why a leaf? Best reason in the world, it was handy.
Say you're in to vintage images and paper crafting? I'll just assume you said, "yes." Take a peek at my husband's new Etsy shop, Digital 50, featuring wonderful images of vintage cards, postcards, and other vintage ephemera for all sorts of arts and crafts. He will be adding more in the near future. Thanks!
Friday night and all day Saturday we had our first snowfall of the season. And it was a "good" one too; about five inches for us which was on the low side. Some areas had as much as seventeen inches! Chicagoland set a new record for the biggest first snowfall.
This was shot Saturday morning. You can see our jack-o-lantern from Halloween in the upper right corner.
Here is the same shot Sunday morning-- where'd that jack-o-lantern go??
So what do you do when the weather outside is frightful? Stay in and make Christmas tags while listening to Christmas music.
Hope your weekend weather was more tolerable! Have a good day!
The vintage Christmas finds have really run dry in my area over the last few years. What I see is mostly 1980s and 90s stuff (I'll restrain myself from using the word "junk"). I did find these kitschy (I'll restrain myself from using the word "junky") Christmas mugs, made in Hong Kong. The jumping jack Santa pin is marked "made in China" so that very well could fall into the 80s/90s category. The unused Christmas pencils are most certainly newish, and will make cheap but useful stocking stuffers.
I also went to an estate sale and found a 1970s Christmas book. The other items of note are two Hong Kong postcard books, a 1933 Nancy Drew type book, and some Hallmark owl notecards. The owls didn't show up too well-- hot pink and white!
The photos in the postcards books are really nice.
That Christmas book is geared at children. It talks about Christmas traditions as well as shows crafts.
