Sunday Postcard Art: Children

Alright…I’m sick as a dog (and how sick is THAT, you ask?) but I REALLY wanted to participate in this week’s challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art. Because I do not use a lot of vintage images, this wasn’t that easy for me. But I did step outside of my own box a little, and using some inspiration from Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer. For those of you who are not familiar with Trader Joe’s, it is a wonderful grocery store chain that puts out an advertisement flyer which features old vintage cartoons that have been given new captions (in the context of the ads).

Well, Sweet Mary here is an image I cut out from a 1953 children’s choirbook. It was to illustrate some song about “helping mother” or some such thing.

Friday Fill-Ins #86

Since I have not been able to craft this week, I thought I’d take this opportunity to participate in the meme blog Friday Fill-Ins which I learned about from Forgetfulone.

1. Dancing to the “Sheep Go To Heaven” song by Cake while vacuuming makes me happy.

2. The last time I walked outside after an ice storm I nearly broke a kneecap.

3. When I drive I am tense.

4. I saw my cat standing on his hind legs trying to open the bedroom door.

5. Give me love, give me health, give me shelter.

6. Next week I am looking forward to being done with prep for the fall.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to signing a revised offer for a house, tomorrow my plans include stressing about the house and Sunday, I want to go for a bike ride!!
