I found the two prints I am sharing with you today months apart at the same thrift store, oddly enough.
I cannot quite make out the name of the artist, and I wish I could, because I love this funky style from the 1960's.
I love bright colors and unusual things, so I had to have this when I saw it. I mean, it has a paisley bathtub!
It had been in a frame, and I suspected it was from a vintage calendar. When I took it out to look at the back, I saw that it was indeed part of a calendar - from 1967. Love it.
This gentleman with the lovely moustache is NOT cleaning his clock the correct way, as you can see.
The correct way is described at the bottom of the page.
The "Walls" print was hanging on the wall at the back of the hall. Just up there, all by itself.
It was in a frame, as well, with no price tag on it.
It was almost too high for me to reach, but I got it down and took it up to the front.
"Is this for sale", I asked.
Oh, how I wish I had the entire calendar to tell me the proper way to clean anything and everything (or at least twelve things, anyway), with fabulous illustrations !
Obviously, somebody else liked these two enough to save them, frame them, and keep them around for forty-seven years. So I wonder what happened to the rest of the pages?
Someone else found them in a thrift store, I guess.
And, by the way, since we are talking about "Clocks" and "Walls" - and who wasn't? - get your clocks off the walls or wherever else they are, and don't forget to set them ahead tonight (if necessary)!
A gentle reminder, in living color.
