The Tuesday Song of the Week

Just think, the next Tuesday Song of the Week will happen in 2017 !!

For the last Tuesday Song of the Week in 2016, we got

'Celtic New Year' - Van Morrison

pillow talk

Welcome to Pillow Talk, where I talk about pillows.

AWESOME pillows that you -- yes, even you -- can purchase!  And also, buy.

Like...

pineapple!

Yes, yes, I know there's a watermark.  As stating many times, these are specifically there to protect YOU from flying monkeys.  The watermarks are NOT on the actual pillows.

Next, we got...
A putto and his dolphin friends!
YES, this is a round pillow.  
Awesome, no?
Yes.


And now there's...
Her Very Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth I
In addition to pink, note that we also have her in lavender and in blue.

Furthermore, there's...
young love


There's also...
birdy love!


Speaking of fauna,
from an ancient book I have re: raising farm critters
Note that my store is FULL of stuff bearing images from the afore-mentioned book.

Now onto the kiddie corner...
Mother Goose and frend

AND...
the urban cowboy

All of the above and MORE -- sooo much more -- pillow-ally speaking, can be had here:


There's hundreds - yep, HUNDREDS -- of other must-have must-haves here:

tie me up, tie me down

But make sure it's with one of the awesome ties from here:

http://www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye/products?dp=252203957183801759&pg=1&ps=204

Like this one:
radio radio
 And this one:
1948 Austin Devon
 And also this one:
a carved wooden owl
HOW
COOL
IS
THAT
???
 Speaking of cool...
We have Comedy serenading Tragedy.

 Our tie collection is almost lemon-tless!


REALLY!!
 Ties so cool, they're COLD !


Global warming might make polar bears extinct, but they'll live on with this tie.
 Hopefully, though that extinction won't happen fast.


And hopefully a LOT less fast than these race cars.

 Getting back to the polar bear topic, maybe if they can't live in the Arctic anymore they can get work as advertising mascots.

A blanket statement

Didja know my Zazzle store has throw blankets?

Maybe you did, maybe you didna.

Nevertheless, check some -- i.e. these -- out !!

*Note that the watermarks are there to protect YOU from flying monkeys.  They are NOT on the actual blankets.

Did you know Al Jolson had his own theatre?
Me neither. 

A FORGOTTEN murder, not the other kind.

A VERY handsome pooch, no?

pretty flowers
 (we have LOTS of pretty flowers and pretty flower items in my store)
 \
It's a trombone flash mob ...
 ... which, you must admit, is pretty cool.

WHAT a relic this is !!!
The above is playbill cover for the 1927 Broadway production Dracula starring Bela Lugosi.  So this image was WITHIN FEET of the man himself.  Think about that. 

When you're done thinking about that, think about this:
Not only ferocious, but WAY sharper in real life.  Not the slightly blurred way it looks above.

Wanna see more blankets?  Go here:

The Tuesday Song of the Week

It's Christmas!

Or actually, soon will be.

It's also Wednesday.  I'm sorry about that, my computer was in the shop yesterday.

Nevertheless, you're getting what I've probably posted here for Christmas before, but it's my favorite (one of two favorites, actually), so you'll just have to accommodate me:


'The Holy and the Ivy' - King's College Cambridge

Your mouse pad is boring.

Yes, it is.

You know it is.  

And that's a problem.  

But we here at Full-Service Bohemian HQ have the answer.

You can now spend your workday and/or the time you spend mindlessly surfing the 'net in the company of a non-boring, and thoroughly ALL THAT mouse pad!

Unbelievable, but true !!

For example:
Oops, just know this: the watermark is only there to protect you from flying monkeys -- and who wants to deal with flying monkeys right before Christmas?  Nobody, that's who. The watermark does NOT appear on the actual mouse pads.

Also that thing in the lower right?  That's Zazzle's thing to make people know that a mouse pad is a mouse pad.  That too is absent from the actual product.

Lastly, know that the images on the actual mouse pads are as sharp as sharp can be, and not very slightly blurred like they appear below.  

Got it?


We have healthy vegetables for you!
And not just sugar peas.  We got tomato mouse pads, and tomato paste mouse pads, and cocoanut (sic) mouse pads, and sauerkraut mouse pads, and MORE.

You really ought to be looking into your future on a regular basis.
The above mouse pad will help you do that.

And here's more looking into the future!
 Don't I hand-color good?

Next we got Uncle Sam being all heroic and like that.
 My store also has another -- and will soon have yet another -- Uncle Sam mouse pad.

Richard Widmark is in the house!
 And, potentially, on your desk.

HOW CUTE IS THIS???
 And how good of a hand-colorer am I?

While you're waging war at work, Rover will keep you covered.
I do hand-color good.

For hundreds (really) more mouse pads, go here:

We interrupt this blog




It's the time of year we need to pony up a buck or ten (or twenty) for Wikipedia.

You can do that here: https://donate.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:FundraiserLandingPage&country=US&uselang=en&utm_medium=sidebar&utm_source=donate&utm_campaign=C13_en.wikipedia.org


Wikipedia has no advertising, but what it does have -- and why it's so useful -- is that you can look up everything from Saint Winwallos to Kaiserschmarrn (yummy!) to bezique to Georgie Price.

Where else can you get that?

No place.

the Tuesday Song of the Week

We got something sorta kinda different this week.

Not a song, but an old vaudeville act that includes song, plus a bunch of other crazy stuff, courtesy of six of the Seven Little Foys, minus one who was running the camera:


Chips Off the Old Block - the Seven Little Foys

The above was on TCM last night, part of their salute to the 90th anniversary of the development (or use or something) of Vitaphone.

It had my hubs, who claimed this was the funniest thing he'd ever seen, laughing so hard I literally thought he was going to pop an aorta.

Sandcastles in the air time

Isn't there a song about sandcastles,

or castles in the air,

or something?

Keeping with today's time theme, we got...


A sandcastle clock* !!

Note that my store has TONS more stuff with this awesome image, from a photo taken by your's truly on a vacation to the area in which I now live.  (Whew.  That's a lot of prepositions.)

Note also that much of the aforementioned stuff would be PERFECT for a beach wedding.

To see, to buy, go here: http://zazzle.com/The_Olden_Eye?rf=238225004668148127

In the 'Search this store' box, enter 'sandcastle'

*Lastly, note that sandcastle clock's bottom curves just like the top.  My snip thing doesn't work too good.

Ooh, I just realized 'Sandcastles in the air time' would make a great puzzle for Wheel of Fortune.  

Western time

Not Western time zone, because Western time zone isn't called Western time zone.

Which is a shame, I think.

Anyway...

AWESOME, am I right?

Of course I'm right.  

To see, to buy, go here: http://zazzle.com/The_Olden_Eye?rf=238225004668148127

and in the 'Search this store' box enter 'death'  Or if that creeps you out, try 'Rides'

Mug of the Month

For Christmas !!

VINTAGE Christmas !!!

The maaaavelous 1940s image wraps around the circumference of the mug.  

And the mug DOES have a handle.  Just so you know.

Get it here: http://www.zazzle.com/1940s_home_for_christmas_coffee_mug-168600684916122253

P.S. We also got another neat retro Christmas mugs.  To see, to buy, go here:

the Tuesday Song of the Week

Now that I'm living downashore, this song really resonates with me:


'Sand in My Shoes' - The Drifters

It's hard to realize how MUCH sand is in my current environment.  It gets in our shoes, then sticks to our feet, and ends up in our bed.

Animal House

or rather, farm animals - VICTORIAN farm animals - in the house,

to wit:
English Dorking chickens wrapping paper
Dorset ram wallet


Holstein bull print necktie



Holstein bull AND Holstein heifer t-shirt

Note that OODLES more of these old prints will soon enter my Zazzle store.  I got a 19th century book on raising farm animals, full to bursting with these fantabulous prints.

To see, to buy what I already got, go to: 

Http://zazzle.com/The_Olden_Eye?rf=238225004668148127 

and in the 'Search This Store' box, enter 'cow' or 'bull' or 'ram' or 'chicken' or 'fowl.'
