I have this thing now where whenever an ad tells me to do something, I turn it around and tell them to do it. For example, when the commercial announcer says, “Right now, you can get 0% financing,” I reply — yes, out loud, with “No, you get 0% financing!” Hubby swears it never gets old. Heh.
In this case, even if sounds threatening or at least a bit naughty, Piff’s is just a vintage soda pop.
Normally I save the vintage recipes for Things Your Grandmother Knew, but this one? Phew! It’s not much of a recipe (buttermilk and tomato juice, two-to-one), but is sure sounds disgusting. While you’re here, help yourself to a prune shake — recipe. (Via.)
All my sites are “up” for Valentine searches, so why not add some more before the holiday is over? These three are vintage and antique die-cut and mechanical Valentine’s Day cards in which the eyes move.
This one is a play on the old he-loves-me, he-loves-me-not. You spin the daisy to find “yes” and “no” responses, and the eyes on the cute girl move – sometimes to crazy positions, as you can see. (It’s available for purchase here.)
This vintage or antique mechanical die-cut valentine features a “ye olde soda shop” motif and a “strawberry blonde special”. When you turn the wheel, her eyes move — and the color in the straw changes to simulate sucking and drinking of the soda or float. It’s obviously an orgasmic soda fountain special, for her eyes roll back into her head. (Now available in our Etsy shop.)
Last, my favorite of this googly-eyed-type of vintage Valentine’s Day cards. This card features an odd winking cowboy whose hears is a strong “hoosegow“. When you pull or gently tug his ear, his one open eye moves and his mouth opens and closes. Kinda creepy. But that’s my thing.
