Vintage Images on my Pinterest page

I often find fabulous vintage cards at the flea markets and garage sales I'm always going to. I'm especially drawn to the artists of the 1940's , 50's and 60's. Sometimes these cards have been used by the people who bought them and sent them to loved ones, and I enjoy reading the messages these caring individuals wrote. (I also enjoy collecting old photographs.)
I thought I would share them with you so you could also enjoy these delightful illustrations from days gone by. I don't see copyrights on them, so hopefully I'm not doing anything wrong by sharing them.  I see lots of other sites, blogs, and flickr accounts that share similar images, so I'm going to assume it's okay.
Anyway, if you're interested, please check them out on my Pinterest board:
While you're there, check out my other boards. Heck, why not just follow all my boards? I am on Pinterest ALOT and in my humble opinion, I do believe I pin some fabulous stuff!
I'll be adding more of my scans periodically. I've got some very cool wedding and bridal shower cards to share as well.

In case you ever wondered (or needed to know) what a peacock looks like on the other side.

About halfway through my bike ride there is a campground near a big lake.
They have a little coop with peacocks, one male and two females.
The peacock was out and his feathers were spread wide.  Apparently it's mating season, because he's shaking his feathers and  squawking  (which is a loud and weird sound) at his Ladies.
 I videotaped it, but I have to figure out how to get it on for now I will post the still shots.
He kept turning and moving around and I clicked a few of his tail feathers shaking. The pictures do not, however, capture just how enthusiastically he was shaking that money maker.
I have to admit, I don't believe the two ladies were very impressed.  But the way I see, it's nice that he makes the gesture. After all, they are in a pen together and there's really no where to hide.
These pictures just might come in handy for someone wanting to sculpt, draw, or otherwise create a three dimensional peacock. Or an individual (for whatever reason) is simply curious to know what's going on back there. In the money makin' tail shakin' area.
