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!

I'm sorry you've caught a virus and are dealing with loss.
I'm glad you haven't lost your sense of humor. I really did laugh out loud at the end!
Hope you don't feel too bad for too long. XO

I love these old vintage postcards too along with the vintage photos which kind of give me the creeps, but for some reason, I keep collecting them.
Hope you feel better!!

Too true...humor never changes does it. Funny that the captions grab you and the images are always the first thing I run to. Never mind the caption. Although when I come here I always go to your words...on your journal pages. Hmm. So sorry to hear about your lost friend. Its a virus in our house with the Dr. around. Sometimes way too scientific for me...smiles..Renee

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Sometimes I think that makes our immune systen take a dive and we become more susceptible to a virus. Hope you are better soon and the post cards are a riot!!

Love your vintage postcards. We can't collect to many things, can we?
I wanted to thank you for stopping by my tomato pin cushion blog post. I do love the articles in the magazine and love to share them with my readers.
Have a great weekend.
