elsie and family in person

This vintage card, also from Sandy, should thrill a friend of mine who collects cow memorabilia. It shows Elsie the Borden Cow at home with mate Elmer and little Beauregard. Elsie's dressing table--note the frying pan mirror--is made from barrels. Her toiletries include Tail Wave Set and Meadow Mud Pack. The sampler over the fireplace was, says the back of the card, made by Elsie as a heifer. (Wish I could make out what it says.) Everything is themed to the barnyard life, including the books in the breakfront, which include The Farmer with Cold Hands and Bulliver's Travels.
