Images for You


Hello lovely Friends!
One of the things I love to look for when I go antiquing is old images and ephemera.
This sweet little girl was in a pack of Victorian scrap.


This beautiful card below is a style that I always get excited about!
I love the steep roofed cottages and the colors of this one is so pretty.


Part of the reason I look for these treasures is my desire to find things that I can share with you.
This postcard is from 1911 and it was to Edith from Vera.


I am a dog lover.  They melt my heart.
I adored this little piece of scrap.  I think I payed $1 for it. 
It is a tattered trade card.


Feel free to use these images in your artwork. 
I want to thank all of you for your kind comments about my baby blankets! 
I wish all of you a lovely week!
Twyla

Hi Twyla, thanks for sharing these fabulous images. A friend's birthday is the 12th so I will be making her a card with one of these. I've just gone back over the past several posts and love, love, love your baby blankets. They are so colorful and charming. Have you shared the pattern before? Wishing you a week a many blessings.

These images are so beautiful and heartwarming.My Mom's name was Edith - I love finding old cards that have writing on them. Your baby blankets are indeed scrumptious! I love baby things.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ladies,

Thanks for the images, I love to add to my collection. I'm so glad there are others out there that share the wealth, I think it's so wrong to charge for images that you didn't even create, that's just my opinion.....agree or disagree, I'll still love ya!

Hugs,
Meri

Believe it or not, I had a dream last night that I was looking for vintage valentine cards in an antique store so that I could send them to YOU! So serious!

Great cards and I am always a fan of the thatched roof cottages whenever I see them : )

Twyla my favorite is the dogs, thanks for posting all of these my friend. I have saved them.

Jacqueline said...

I have actually seen the anniversary one before. I wish they made cards like they used too. The art of this kind of charm is gone by the wayside for sure.

Shirley said...
