To a Special Boy...

That means you, cat boys --AND cat girls of the world! Cute card from Paramount (60's), as we inch closer and closer to what all the cool cat's know is the most pawsome time of the year!

Don't Be a 'Fraidy Cat...

Solid advice from a vintage '71 Norcross Halloween card from my not so private collection... more cute kittens too, and this time an ancestor of Slimer, or maybe a relative from the great Green Ghost Game makes a special appearance! We're getting closer to October, fiends-- stay tombed for lots more!

If I Could "Be Witch" Ya...

If I could "be witch" ya, then my vintage greeting card collection would be yours too! A super nice Forget Me Not from the 60's or 70's, featuring an incredible witch illustration and a super cute interior reveal too! ;)

Fearless?

Another vintage Halloween greeting card from my collection, dated 1969 and also from Norcross, featuring a funny frightened bunny many miles (and months) off course from Eastertown.

What Are Fiends For!?

We fiends are for delivering vintage halloween card fun, for sure! And here's one of my favorites from late 60's Norcross... seriously, if that teeny mouse deliverin' the drinks doesn't get you into some kind of festive "spirit" --then you're already dead!

Halloween is Here!

Well, not really... but it is slowly materializing in supermarket and variety store aisles and other places that thankfully stock up on the spooky goods earlier and earlier every year it seems-- and I am not complaining! I have a bunch of fun vintage Halloween cards to share with you all this year too, so among the usual (and unusual) various posts, and our typical "Skipping September" sensibilities, you're sure to find yourself graveyard deep in ghosts, ghouls, witches, and fuzzy black cats, which in this blogger's humble opinion is always a great way to kick off the greatest holiday of them all! A show of severed arms-- who's already got their boo on?

Rock Flowers '72

Mattel cranked-out some super groovy toys for boys and girls in the 70's, and here we see them teaming up with Whitman to release Rock Flowers paper dolls based on the ultra fab fashion figures of the same name (click HERE to read more info about 'em; then see my all time favorite doll commercial HERE; and listen to a couple of the rockin' bubblegum 45's they came packaged with, just click HERE and HERE to kick-out some jams!) The paper dolls came with 3 of the Rock Flowers: Heather, Rosemary, and Lilac, plus an assortment of wild concert "costumes" --the back cover even doubles as a stage for them to perform upon! Print these scans on thick stock paper and just cut 'em out with scissors-- now you can have some Rockin' Flower power fun of your own!
