Vintage Caffeine Cure and Frame

Hi there!

It's going to be short and sweet today! While visiting family out of town, I was bitten by a German Shepherd in the face. So after going to Emerg, getting several stitches, antibiotics, a tetanus shot, etc., I'm resting up as much as I can for the next few days.

I don't know about you, but I am a coffee drinker, and I LOVE good coffee!! So when I found this vintage ad, it made me laugh!

Caffeine, a headache cure and useful for a myriad of other issues as well.  I WISH!

I thought the frame was nice, so separated it for you.
Have a good day everyone, and thanks for visiting!



  1. Thanks for the frame and I do hope that you are feeling better...so sorry to hear about the dog bite...

  2. So sorry that you got a dog bite and all the excitement(emerg, tetanus shot).I appreciate the time and creativity that you 've put into this blog. I've yet to do something like this. Well done! I'm not sure how to apply the frame,etc to...,actually, anything. What a person use it for? I'm not very blog-savvy. Sincerely, Lise-Anne
