Vintage Game Cards!

Busily today I made these little tiny little canvases.  This past weekend at the Swanky Plank, I found these vintage game cards with cooky phrases.  The vendor told me they were from a European game of some type.....I have no idea.  

My BFF told me to just mount them on a canvas...but, as usual I had to add a little stitchey something to it. But, the simplicity is quite cute.  

Some of the crazy phrases are:

A tub of butter.
A bunch of posies.
Such a pretty kettle of fish.
A cake salmon.
A chaw of tobacco.
A city missionary.

What does this all mean?  Why would you say these phrases?  Whacky!
