Amy’s Pick of the day is a vintage French ad for indigestion pills— perhaps for the mademoiselle who ate too many crêpes? It’s an attractive little advertisement, regardless of its subject, for scrapbooking, collage, and decoupage. Or have some fun with it — as a bon voyage or birthday card, you can let you friends know that you wish them happiness and health, both inside and out!
