Vintage Postcards

Category: What on Earth!?

So, there are still some items that were left in the house that we have not examined very closely.

Like the boatloads of vintage postcards.

Here is a postcard that you, dear reader, might have sent to your sensitive mom from Europe in the 1950's with the words "Have finally found the man of my dreams!". A kind of stylized and cool representation of the first bullfight. Theseus and the Minotaur.

Here is the postcard that you would NOT have sent to your sensitive mom from Europe in the 1950's with the words "I've finally found the man of my dreams!". Unless you wanted her to faint dead away at the feet of the mailman. It's the statue of The Little Bacchus from the Boboli Gardens in Florence, Italy.

You'll have to scroll down for this one.

Oh, my eyes!

That's probably the first and only time you'll ever post something that could be considered NSFW. :)

That turtle is just mad because he's asking himself why, if had to have a naked guy sitting on him, couldn't it be that nice David fellow from across town.

I know that guy. I think he owns the auto body shop down the street from me.

And you can even have that cute statue in your own home ;)

how lucky to have that! are they all addressed to the same person/people? or are they a collection of the previous homeowner? so cool!!
