Happy New Year!






All images via the New York Public Library Digital Gallery. What's up with the mushroom motif? Forgotten New Years metaphors? Ideas, anyone?

Good luck Patty!

And this from a private email from someone who saw this post:

"The mushroom is the Fly agaric or Amanita muscaria, if you look on Wikipedia you will find a section on the Christmas ,Santa, Fly agaric connection and more cards with mushrooms. You will also find out how reindeer can fly (or think they can), and about hallucinogenic urine."
