I was born in the 1950's (oops the cat is out the bag now). Which may explain why I love 50's (and 40's and 30's) ephemera...just something so cool about it.
So not surprising that I love to find old magazines and books from that time and use them in my artistic endeavours...this one has a little mantra I really WOULD like to stick to (wouldn't we all). The symmetry of the arm movements is way cool.
I had thrifted some old Bridge score sheets a while back - she just seemed to fit. Originally she was part of an advertisement for windows which explains her "looking out".
Somehow I think he might be Bridge Lady's Husband - don't you? What a handsome couple they would make - him working in downtown Manhattan and she, well, playing bridge all the time...LOL.
Finally - this gal just has that look (do you ever pay attention to the faces on those old patterns?). The trim is from the spine of a book cover and old wall paper in the background.
Anyway, I do love retro - don't you? Enjoy, Jewels
