Look, a “TV” brand — as in a branding iron to imprint “TV” onto your cattle. Or your couch potatoes?
Spotted at one of our local antique malls.
I am finally getting through all the random, potentially amusing, pics on my phone. So check my other blogs, here & here especially.
Melinda’s napkin folding skills were so great, she was no longer content to confine her skills in the dining room.
He certainly seems to enjoy it.
When quiet time is a silent prayer for it all to end.

This graphic covers the plates from cars in films from 1964 to 2008. I’m not really a gear head, but I would have preferred photos to the illustrations myself. Via.
This is Spinal Tap, a mock rockumentary. But This Is Spinal Tape, packing tape with real backbone. …Well, it’s illustrated with spinal cord, anyway. According to the reviews, it’s more decorative than structurally sound for packing up boxes.
Not to be all about moustaches, but did you know that the World Beard and Moustache Championships were recently held in in Leogang, Austria? Results will be published here. And just yesterday, the 2015 Just for Men® National Beard and Moustache Championships® presented by Hanes X-Temp® took place in Brooklyn, New York. Details here.
Also, the British Army required every soldier to have a mustache from in 1860-1916.
That’s all I can manage to say, really. Via.

But we must present what we find when we find it — especially when it’s goodies for sale.
Plus, as the back of this vintage photo of Iris Adrian reads, “You can come down our chimney anytime, Iris, and no need to wait for Christmas.”
Not to mention that the wreaths that Ida Lupino is shopping for are so fake, they are neither perishable nor time-sensitive. Don’t you just love the idea of a glamorous movie star wearing a fab hat and a mink coat while shopping for kitsch?
A vintage 8 x 10 inch glossy of Joyce Blanche Murray dressed as a bat — if bats actually have or wear images of themselves on themselves. Oh, and if you think it’s too early for the Halloween costumes, there’s no mention of that holiday. After all, this was Hollywood — and this is Kitschy Kitschy Coo. Rules don’t apply.
Press snipe on verso reads:
PERFECT PROFILE AND DANCING FEET
These are the two things that won for pretty Joyce Blanche Murray a long term contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. Not only is Miss Murray a lovely person, but she holds the world’s endurance record for toe-dancing, almost 17 minutes. She has also stood on her toes for as long as 45 minutes. While doing a dance part in the sensational M.G.M. film, “The Broadway Melody”, she did the “triple-wing,” the “web-foot wing” and the “fast raffle,” the first time these dances have ever been done on the toes. The world-famous dancing instructor, Kosloff, calls her “Joyce of the iron Toes.” And rightly is she named.
