Hello, I'm an English female grown-up and an enthusiastic purveyor of various forms of internet whimsy. This is a place to show you stuff I've drawn or written or otherwise cobbled together, as well as stuff I simply like the look of. You can also find me on Livejournal and Twitter.
This vintage snippet from LIFE magazine (20 June 1938) is a delightful relic of the days when it was customary to write a polite covering letter for an amusing animal picture, rather than simply scrawling “LOLZ!!!” all over it.
An ad from 1949 with slightly unfortunate implications. If you’re about to have a four-way with a bunch of marines in a House of Horrors, I can see why you might need a lot of protection, but is motor oil really going to help?
