"I was a bit of a tomboy when I was a lass...dreaming of the Jolly Roger, and pirates plundering the Caribbean! I used to sneak out of bed late at night, way past my bed time, to watch the late show on T.V., especially to see Errol Flynn, or Tyrone Power, in their swashbuckling Hollywood roles! Movies like "Captain Blood", "The Sea Hawk", and "The Black Swan", were my favorites! It wasn't easy to tip toe past my parents room, as my mother was such a light sleeper. I had to keep the T.V. volume so low, and try not to act out the sword fight scenes, in the livingroom...and it was even harder when my little brother started joining me in my late night viewing!
I realized when I had my own children, just what we had put my mother through, while we were growing up...my brother and I, had made very pointy wooden pirate swords to have sword fights in the yard!
I've always luved pirate memorabilia, and almost let out a whoop, when I found some vintage 1950's pirate drink glasses, at a local estate sale! I'm always looking for nautical vintage / antique items, and was pleased to find these 1950's boys pajamas with sailing ships! I know little boys, and girls, used to enjoy the pirate films of the old days, but now I think they do again...thanks to Johnny Depp's brilliant portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow, in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies!
I hope that some little boy, or girl, will enjoy these vintage 1950's sailing ships pajamas, and have sweet dreams of adventure on the high seas! :O)Vintage 1950s Saks Fifth Avenue Boys Sailing Ships Pajamas Size 14
