Billy DeVorss - “Come On” 1937 - In pure DeVorss style, beautiful flapper with blond hair and blue eyes. Love the nice touch with only one finger of her left hand on the beautiful green dress. His colors were always bright and his models glamorous!

Alberto Vargas - Lullaby For A Dream - As you go dreaming, save a dream for me, A dream of gay, inconsequential things, When all we were to know is yet to be and young illusion colored all our springs; Yes, while you dream, I hope you recall a moon that dipped across an April sky … The tiny inn we sought when night would fall… The candlelight…the wine…And you and I… There is an end to laughter in the rain, There is an end to shadowed streets we knew, Yet as the past cries out to me again it is a simple thing I ask of you; As you go dreaming, save a dream for me… Spun from the gossamer of use-to-be!
Painting by Vargas - Verse from Phil Stack

Moran called his 1949 calendar Nursery Nifties and with each month, there was a short nursery rhyme. This illustration of Marilyn was from November 1949. “Lazy Mary, will you get up and listen to my warning? If you would charm the men at night, exercise each morning.” If you pull up the calendar front, you will be able to read more about the name Nursery Nifties.
