Would you believe I thought this was Wednesday? I just sat down to post and realized today is Thursday!! Sorry for the late post, but with a four day work week, I got a little mixed up! Don't forget to visit the other great Vintage Thingies over at Colorado Lady.
This week I'm showing you Mr. Squash's collection of World War II posters. He loves WWII history as well as collecting the posters! This first one is our favorite! It hangs next to the dining room table. Anything behind glass is difficult to photograph, so some of these wound up on the floor for a better picture!
This is huge and hangs in our entryway. I've been planning a 4th of July quilt to hang near it!
This one is pretty ominous. The more I look at it, the more I see.
Mr. Squash thought this was a poster and bought it. Then he looked closer after he got it home - it is a photograph of a poster!! We're not sure if it's WWI or WWII.
This one is not from WWII but purchased for obvious reasons! It's by the famed artist David Lance Gaines. We have another of his, but it isn't war-related. I love it's Art Deco style.
I had to sneak the last one in. Mr. Squash's dad was a watch officer in the Navy during WWII. He was at sea when Mr. Squash was born. One if his jobs was to code and decode messages. He received a message that said his son was born, then it finished with "decode no further".
This was taken after he got home. The only transportation he could get back home to New Jersey from California was by train. He and his friends pooled money to get a car attached to a train and saw the entire country on their way home! I hope you enjoyed this look back at WWII!
