Gone Fishin'

Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Loretta & Isabella reporting,

Everybody else seems to be going on vacation, so we are, too. We're taking a week off from blogging, tweeting, pinning, & general social networking.

See you back here next week!

Congrats on your blog- I always enjoy reading it.Would love to know where you came across that wonderful "gone fishin" poster (or is it a painting".

Thanks for the kind words, Jasmin. I have to confess that this particular image didn't come from a great museum or archive - it's from an ebay listing, with no credits at all. I'm guessing early 20th c. advertising art. The more you look at it, the stranger (especially the anatomy!) becomes. And WHY are the levitating over that rock?
In other words, entirely appropriate for Loretta & me. :)

The ebay listing is here - you can buy this as a poster: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Women-Fishing-in-the-Sea-20-Seaside-Scenes-Print-Canvas-Poster-A4-A3-A2-A1-/290693717448?clk_rvr_id=502899082831
