Merry Christmas Part II

I just finished this Christmas Greeting for my business blog, but this design has such a nice retro feel that I am cross posting it here. So, again, I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

Here is a Christmas themed Merrie Melodies cartoon features Sniffles the Mouse, as he valiantly attempt to stay up on Christmas Eve to meet Santy Clause. I'll grant you this cartoon is a little on the cutesy side, but it is Christmas after all, and the creativity (Haxwell Mouse coffee for instance) and the beautiful design and gorgeous background paintings make it worthwhile. And so, with that I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

R.I.P: Connie Hines

I'm afraid I'm the barer of sad news (especially at this time of year), in case you haven't heard, Connie Hines, who played Carol Post, Wilbur's long suffering wife on the Mister Ed television program has died from heart problems at the age of 78. She was a lovely and charming actress, and I always enjoyed (and still do) her work on Mister Ed. She essentially retired in the late 60's, but as Carol Post she was a part of a lighthearted and fun legacy, which even 40+ years later continues to provide us with a welcome respite from this crazy World we live in.  Thank you, Ms. Hines.

*You can read more about her career at this Wikipedia entry and she is also featured on the Internet Movie Database where you'll find a little more information and a nice photo gallery.

Happy Birthday to My SweetGirl!

Today is my sweet little girlfriend's birthday. She has somewhat of a tradition going where every year on her birthday, she likes to watch the movie White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. I mean the movie features Bing and Danny, not that she actually watches it with them. Anyway, in honor of that tradition, I present the original movie trailer for White Christmas, as well as a re-released version.


*Mushiness to Sugar: Happy Birthday Sweet Girl. I love you.

Howdy Kids!

I've been busy the past couple of weeks getting things geared up for the Christmas shopping season over at my Vintage 66 Graphics Shop on Zazzle. I came up with a couple of retro Christmas card designs, so I though I would do a little boasting.

Thanks for stopping by.
