The Original Swimsuit Models

1920s-ish swim wear ooh la la

I think it’s crazy what a different standard of male and female beauty people had a hundred years ago. My scanner made a wrinkle. ūüė¶ It was a beautiful day for jogging, washing cars, and¬†making cupcakes – now time for Margaret’s birthday dinner. I hope Publix sells something I can use as a cupcake carrier.

Books A Million has this awesome book about the mermaids of Weeki Wachi Springs from the 1960s. Nearly got it but decided to buy Beauty in Decay instead online Рwhich is still frustratingly on back order like 5 weeks later.

Does Weeki Wachi still have stuff like this? I will add it to my vacation destinations and find out.

 Drew this pic from a vintage photo postcard. I wonder if they ever did any shoots with people in formal wear Рthat would have been sublime.

Been sick since last week plus extremely busy.¬† Drew these supa-fast waiting for the internet to reconnect….I can’t explain the inspiration for Wild Boy, Wild Girl, and the stupid-looking bunny. Maybe I was thinking of the Blue Lagoon.

Wild Boy, Wild Girl, and toast creature

Wild Boy was dumped in the wilderness as a baby, or maybe he toppled out of a caravan, and he was swadled in the cloth that now makes his loincloth. Wild Girl was discovered by townspeople and taken in by a wealthy philanthropist, but she disliked linguistics and¬†ran¬†away¬†back into the wild. She is very quiet; Wild Boy’s a little ADHD.

I’m tired of having a fever. Going to bed.





I want an island getaway.
