Just for the fun of it! Whimsical farmyard fellow sports fuzzy, flocked comb, has shiny -brite decoupaged finish over a patchwork of nostalgic prints. 9” tall rooster is pert, unique accent alone; can be planted, or used for pencil, pen, etc. catch-all. Or fill with a HENNY PENNY GARDEN (separate kit shown in rooster), felt-leafed calico and cotton flowers, elegantly edged in golden braid andfashioned to match and contrast with planter. Both original craft kits from National Handcraft, Handcraft Building, Des Moines, Iowa.
This wins my WTF Seal of Approval.

I HAD A LITTLE PONY
April is NATIONAL POETRY MONTH
I recently found several postcards that are part of a series of nursery rhymes illustrated with still life photographs showing people made of pipe cleaners and flower blossoms, and knickknack animals. They are really bizarre and BAD.
If enough people like or reblog this, I’ll post one or two more before the end of April.
I HAD A LITTLE PONY
I had a little pony, his name was Dapple Grey
I lent him to a lady, to ride a mile away.
She whipped him, and she lashed him,
And she rode him through the mire.
I would not lend my pony again, for all that lady’s hire.
SUSIE WTF DOLL
Someone commented on my MUSICAL POCKETBOOK postcard yesterday: “I told you they need a WTF button on Tumblr.” Tumblr, I submit this as Exhibit A.
I think BAD POSTCARDS would receive a very high WTF rating.
This thing has cat whiskers and a cat ear hat, yet all other attributes are human. The skirt is completely lifted up. It’s like DOLL PORN.
What makes this more bizarre is that there is no descriptive text on the card. It was mailed in 1960 to Utica, New York and the sender had this to say: “Hi: We’re on the Oklahoma Turnpike—there’s a minimum speed of 40! We’re getting along fine—The little car is no problem (except for real sharp turns.)”
LADY PRESCO DECORATOR PILLOWS
If you want to advertise how comfortable your pillows are, take a tip from this company. Look how relaxed and happy that doll is!
Four different styles are listed on the back of the card: Slipper Satin, Reversible, Box, and Solid Cordana. “All in distinctive decorator colors and shapes. Kapok filled. Promotionally Priced!” They only list the price of the Solid Cordana—$5.75 per dozen. This advertising postcard was from the PRESSING SUPPLY COMPANY, 5695 Rising Sun Avenue, Philadelphia 20, Pennsylvania.
