Mermaid Kewpies

“For the Rainy Day

With twinkling eyes and a cheery smile

And a nose so small and funny,

A Kewpie put by for a rainy day

Is most as good as money!”

I only had one Kewpie card until a week and a half ago when I decided to scoop some up from eBay. I decided that they fit under my artist signed umbrella of postcards, and they are just so cute! This card has mermaid Kewpies and some regular ones playing in the rain. Rose O’Neill cleverly signed her name towards the lower left corner-

This card was mailed June 16, 1918 from Shelbina, Missouri to Great Falls, Montana.
