Vintage Advertising!!

What a fun surprise I found on the back of this vintage seascape!!  When they framed this beauty back in the 1960's...they used advertisements as backing!!  The kids and I had a ball looking at all the great deals!!  A parakeet and cage $1.87!!!  I would have loved to keep the backing...but it was crumbling & I really had to paint the frame white.  BUT it was a fun little blast from the past for the kids and I for a few days!!

Happy Spring everyone!!!  Does anyone else feel like Easter is sneaking up FAST????

I think I have 30 now...do you think I should stop???  My hubby is like...."OK...I like all your vintage stuff....but what the heck is up with all the pokey things???"  Stop????  Really???? Why???

February is coming to an end very soon.  Where did it go???  Hope you are all doing well!!
