Prints Charming Sunday: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Welcome to Prints Charming Sunday!

Hot jumping jebus on a griddle, it's the first day of spring. Can you even stand it? I can't. I'm besides myself with jubilation and gid. Can you not tell? Seriously though, I'm just so glad snow and ice and flood-y basements are done and over with! Gone are overpriced shovels and cracked plastic ice scrapers and salty boots. Except... we have snow in the forecast here in the northeast for the week, so that sort of blows the whole shiny happy vibe to hell in a hand basket, doesn't it? But damn the snow, notwithstanding, it's spring nonetheless!*

To celebrate** this here first day-o-spring, I present to you this biblically fabulous Vintage 50's Garden of Eden Novelty Print Dress, currently available on Etsy from seller Revolving Styles:



It's not the greatest closeup, but can you see it's a scene of a nudie Adam & Eve with the snake lurking in the tree? Cute! Tree-hugging streakers and a suggestive, phallic reptile? Sounds about right. It must be spring.

* Side note, part 1: I've been wanting to drop schmancy words like "nonetheless" and "notwithstanding" on y'all for a while now. Impressed? I figured.

** Side note, part deux: who exactly literally celebrates the first day of spring? (Or the first day of anything for that matter.) Pagans? Ancestral witches? Ancient druids? Celtic warlocks? I must know who you season revelers are! I'll wait.


  1. That's an adorable dress! Love the print! Kori xoxo

  2. I'm celebrating Spring by painting my hall way. It's an ancient custom started back in cave dwelling days when the last of the winter wine storage was tasted, and promptly spit back out because the wine had turned to vinegar egg dye.

    And now you know why we color eggs a month later.

    The end. =)

  3. Holy crap I love that description of A&E. I about had to clean the keyboard after that one.

    I would love to have some sort of lusty Welcome Back Spring ritual/party but anything even remotely like organized religion gives me the hives.

    And now I know why we used to dye eggs when I was a kid! Thank goodness I wasn't actually eating or drinking when I read that, too!
