  5. I really like these advertising cards. The first one with the owl had me really smiling with what he was saying..and after reading the corn starch, who wouldn't use it for their desserts? It had to be the very thing to use. Thank you for showing us these..I really enjoyed them. Happy VTT..have a wonderful weekend.

  13. I love advertising and old cards, these are really neat, I don't think I have seen any like them. They would really look cute framed and grouped on a wall. Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!
