Prints Charming Sunday: Yodel-Lay-Hee-Hoo!

It's Prints Charming Sunday again! And to ease some of your minds, I have no plans to stop doing this particular theme so no worries, mates! (I said that in my head like I was Australian. You should try it. I royally suck at doing an Australian accent, by the way. It's borderline embarrassing. OK, it's flat-out embarrassing, who am I kidding?) Novelty prints are so awesomely fun, I don't think there's anyone who doesn't dig them and there's jillions to be found, ranging from the 1940's to the 1970's, so I don't think that theme could ever get stale and boring! (At least, not any time soon, right-o?)

Today's vintage novelty print pick is this perplexing yet really cool Vintage 40's Novelty Print Blouse.

The perplexing part is that the seller is calling it a beach print. Beach print?

I dunno. When I see it up close I see Swiss Alps mountain hiker/goat herder type dudes in lederhosen that Julie Andrews sang about on the Sound of Music. Am I seeing it all sorts of wrong? The print reminds me of everyone's favorite 1970's game Cliff Hangers, as seen on the Price is Right, where the mountain hiker yodels as he climbs the mountain and then falls of the edge of the cliff if you lose:


  1. Hahaha..My favorite part was when the poor little yodeling fool falls over the edge of the cliff! The only game that I actually wanted people to fail at!


  2. Howdy
    Oh hey I know
    The poor guy hit his head as he fell off the cliff and the rushing air made him think of the sounds of waves crashing against the sea shore ,
    oops that won't work either
    oh well I'm with you I see the Alps ,I hear the yodeling .
    Thanks for another great Prints Charming post !
    Happy Trails

  3. That is so funny! I have to tell you that the way my laptop brought your entry up, it showed the first part - with the cute print then as you scroll down you mention the Price is Right. Well, as I was looking at that print, I'm thinking of that little game on The Price is Right. I loved the song that always went along with it. I was very into playing that game down in AC just for the music :-)
