Evelyn Nesbit - Hollywood Scandal

Grrl Pickers love historic Hollywood and even more so, historic Hollywood scandal.

While looking at vintage postcards online, I found this one and the name of the model rang an instant bell.    

One more great thing about postcards is that one can find images of famous (and perhaps infamous as well) persons that are not as widely distributed images as found in magazines etc.

Coniving seductress or misused child actress grown into confused woman, it's hard to say who Evelyn Nesbit really was but we sure do love the mystery of wondering... 

Thursday, June 6, 2013 - Great Vintage Postcard Site

Grrl Pickers love old postcards and the best site we have seen (so far) for a wide variety as well as rare images is Cardcow:

   Great Vintage Postcards at

      here are just a handful of wonderful postcard images that we have "borrowed" to illustrate better just how delightfully wonderful looking through postcards at Cardcow is:  

    (another plus to adding to postcard collections through is looking online one doesn't get the sniffles from opening boxes of old postcards in the back of dusty vintage stores! : )
