Tales of Owls and Flowers...

A few more scans from the vintage archives:

This set of 1966 mini posters screen printed on heavy gold card is one of my very favorite finds by this artist, soon to be properly framed and displayed along with a million other cute ephemeral odds and ends (my very first resolution for 2010!)

Have a Verrie Merrie...

Happy Holidays Everyone!
Here are a few scans from my previously semi-secret archives of 60s ephemera:

I've been organizing like crazy for the past few weeks, in advance of a couple of impending super exciting life changes which I can't wait to share! One of the super exciting announcements semi-tangentially involves all of these boxes of cute cards, notes, stationery and paper goods that I've been hauling from coast to coast all of these years, so expect lots more scans from the archives soon!!!
Here's to starting 2010 off with a bang!

December Magic...

One more holiday favorite from the archives:

Also, a tiny query!
We have a semi-accidental Xmas tradition of tucking ourselves away for the holiday to feast on red velvet cakes and holiday themed horror films, but seem to have run out of un-previously viewed titles for this year... any suggestions?

The lineup so far consists 100% of this amaaazing 1979 Kate Bush Christmas Special:

Via all time faves the magical Miss Witch Mountain and Cat Party!

If You Go Down To The Woods Today...

Hello everyone! Sorry it has been, as per usual, approximately one million years since my last post here. We've been pleasantly caught up in a whirl of tiny visits with faraway friends on the way to and from far-flung family fĂȘtes, hibernating with mugs of cocoa and whipped cream, and most exciting of all, running away to the woods for a self guided fairy tale mushroom tour!

We decided to skip town late Thanksgiving eve for lack of anything better to do, eventually winding up in a perfectly beautifully ghostly deserted Astoria, dining on a Thanksgiving feast of convenience store wine, cheese and chocolate (Not having considered that everything would be closed!), thankfully finding room for the night at the cute new Commodore Hotel, and set out first thing in the a.m. for the magically silent woods, where I'm still beyond excited to have seen my very first amanitas in the wild!
We spotted these:

and so many more! I posted a few more cute mushroom clusters on my flickr and hope to capture oh so many more when we go back soon for a real Park Ranger guided tour, where we will also hopefully learn how to spot things that we can actually eat!
