Growing up just after WW2, listening to tales of heroism and hijinks in the skies, it’s no surprise that I favor that era when it comes to airplanes I enjoy flying—real or simulated. So it should be no surprise that nose art, and vintage pinups, attract me too.
I searched high and low for something appropriate as a logo for this site, for something extraordinary. When I found pinupsplus.com I knew my search was over. And it wasn’t just the red high heels.
They have an extensive collection of pinups in waterslide decals, singles and sheets, for your guitar or motorcycle (or helmet) at ridiculously low prices. I mean a whole sheet with 13 tempting tootsies costs less than 10 bucks! Rockabilly, nose art, Hawaiian, sweet and sexy, or naughty—you want a pinup? They got ’em.
If that’s not enough, they also have pin-up prints on canvas starting at $14.95, jewelry from as low as $6.50 for a pair of earrings, and even glass paperweights for $12.95. And the art is, well, delicious.
Does this sound like an ad? It’s not. I was so delighted with the long-legged honey you see here that I promised to blog about her, and where she came from. And it’s no chore doing that while I sit here enjoying the view.
