Vintage Overexcited Mothers

This post began as a search for vintage Mother’s Day images, but what I found was a series of domestic ladies who are altogether TOO expressive. Look at all the exciting things women can do!

Have you ever seen anyone so excited about pots and pans?

Grocery shopping!

Drinking tea!



Doing the dishes!

Wondering where the bacon went!

And my personal favorite: the utterly unparallelled rhapsody of cleaning!

  1. That driving lady looks especially troubling, like she’d cheerfully run you over with her car and maybe shout “cheerio!” as she drives away… 😛 And the lady in the cigarette ad looks like she’ll make you like them if you say you don’t!

  2. HILARIOUS. I didn’t know they had Xanax back then.

  3. Hahaha! These are nuts! I really want some of that tea, if it’s legal.

  4. I wonder if that’s the same model? She looks the same in every image.

      Yes, I’m fairly convinced only a small number of women worldwide can make these faces. It probably is the same woman.
