Another Accidental Colletion
Finding my muse is a struggle tonight. I spent last night writing the eulogy for someone gone WAY too soon and tonight I feel like I might be coming down with a cold. Why do they call it a cold, anyway? Why don't we say we feel like we are coming down with a virus? Just another one of those things I wonder about.
Anyway, I was knocking around the art-room tonight, trying to find my mojo, and I found my stack of vintage postcards instead.
I am always on the lookout for old postcards I can use in my inspiration kits for my Etsy store. When I find this type, though, I can never bare to part with them so the result was an accidental collection. Click the pictures bigger so you can read the captions.
I love the old lithographs but the captions are what really grab me. These cards are all about 100 years old but it is clear the relationships between men and women are pretty timeless.
Caveman: Come live with me in my cave and I will provide for you and our children.
Cave woman: Yes, but can you make a spear and run fast?
Caveman: Come on over to my cave and I'll show you my spear.
Did I just type that? I haven't even taken any cold [virus] medicine yet!
