Spring is Here

In the span of a few days, spring has arrived with a flourish. The daffodils and dogwoods are out. Time for outdoor pursuits and activewear! Here, a few fashion illustrations by Thelma Mortimer, an illustrator from the 30s for Women's Home Companion and Good Housekeeping. Let's make our own stuff! An excellent message at all times.

Also, how about this hat! And the peculiar little accompanying figures are like tiny pets, or invisible monitors, or animated effigies.
