Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness: Vintage Thanksgiving Art

Thanks to my sweetie, Eva, for this yummy collection of vintage Thanksgiving Art. Have a great Turkey Day, everyone! 🙂


Darlings, today kicks off a holiday week here in the United States. While Halloween will always be my favorite, I do have a soft spot for all the events of autumn; celebrations of harvests and softly falling leaves, as we prepare for a dark and cozy period before the wheel turns once again to sun and summer.

In honor of this week’s fall festival, here is a whole collection of early 20th century Thanksgiving art from magazine covers and America’s Golden Age of Postcards. I am particularly partial to the lovely 1914 George Barbier Harper’s Bazar cover at right. Enjoy!
