I feel like I have been posting a lot of vintage posters recently, but I just love them! Making a poster now is no big deal. We just get on the computer, arrange a few things, and suddenly it’s done (I am not complaining about that, especially when I need a poster for one of my events!). The problem is that they are not works of art any more, but just something quickly put together to get the message out. I think that vintage posters, while they had a very clear message that they were trying to portray, were really works of art in themselves. My recent obsession with vintage posters has led me to want to design and paint some myself. I will be posting these over on my painting blog soon, but in the meantime, check out a few of my favorite vintage movie posters I have recently come across.

A couple of nights ago I was watching White Christmas. I have to say that is one of my favorite Christmas movies. The music, the dancing, the clothes…I just love it all. I could watch Vera Ellen dance all day, and I am thinking of convincing one of my sisters to put together an act with me so that we can do that “Sisters” song…
But most of all, I am determined to one day have a dress just like the one Rosemary Clooney wears when she sings “Love You Didn’t Do Right By Me.”
If I had loved during this time period I would want to be a singer at a club like this. To wear beautiful dresses and sing beautiful songs every night would be my idea of the good life.
Have you ever seen illustrator Keri Smith’s list of 100 ideas? I just love how simple and fun the ideas are, and yet so out of the ordinary from what most of us do every day. Click over there to get some ideas from Keri’s list (and check out her illustrations), or make your own list. Let me know how it goes!
For some reason I always feel like rainy days need a theme song more than other days. Sunny or winter days are fun all on their own, but rainy days need a little musical accompaniment to get you through. The torrential rains we have had the last couple of days have left me in desperate need of some rainy day music. And no one can do it better than Frank!
