Crazy Tumblr Themes

A vintage / antique blog to accompany Aquamarine Dream Vintage (aquamarinedream.etsy.com)! Dreamy, whimsical, quirky, weird delights from the past. Victorian oddities, 50s kitsch, chiffon prom dresses and spooky dolls. I have (and love) it all. I'll be sharing my favorite shop updates here, and also my best finds from local auctions, eBay, and more.

Man, that text. Apparently Helene Wright’s favorite pastime is being cheerfully cruel to sad, adorable 1940s girls. (Meanwhile the reclining guy, blissfully unaware of the extradiegetic commentary, seems to be thinking “Sad girl pretty. Me have boner.”)
