Vintage Thingies Thusday:




I am sure most of you think you have seen lots of vintage items. If you have not had time to visit Coloradolady at Vintage Thingies Thursday, you are in for a big surprise. It is a wonderful way to share a part of the past.



While going through some old boxes and papers of my late father-in-law, I found these two prints. I thought they were so colorful and had never seen any like them. I took them and had them framed in order preserve them.


They were painted with an embossed look

Each were signed and painted in 1942. I could not read the signature. Perhaps some of you out there is familiar with the name or can read it. I have them hanging in my den and really enjoy them.

Those prints are so retro and love the bright colors. A lot of inspiration can come from them.

Love the picture of the boys on the water. Times have changed, haven't they? Would we now allow boys that age unattended without life jackets on water? The good old days, and somehow we survived! Sally

I sure like those two prints. I'm sorry I can't help you identify the artist, but I think 1942 is a great year -- I was born that year!

That print of the two boys is sooo cute! Love their expressions.

I like the first one a lot. Reminds me of books I had when I was a kid, a long time ago.

Those colors are so bright and pretty! That first one reminds me of the Dick and Jane series of schoolbooks/readers.
Very nice indeed!
Happy VTT!
