This is a wonderful old patriotic postcard of Lady Liberty holding the flag! This graphic would be great to use on a Fourth of July card. If you like this image, check back on July 4th, as I will be posting the sister postcard to this one. (Be sure to click the graphic to enlarge it)
This is a very sweet old illustration of 4 cute cherubs flying through the evening sky! This graphic is from an old baby book. It appears as though the cherubs are bringing this darling baby to his new parents.
This is a lovely engraving from an old Parisian guide book. This graphic features a wingedstatue known as "The Winged Victory of Samothrace" that is displayed in the Louvre. This is a beautiful image that would work wonderfully in an altered art project.
Oh my, I'm so excited to share this one with all of you!! This is a gorgeous piece of Victorian Advertising, for a New York department store. This amazing piece is a wonderful colorful butterfly, with the most fabulous wings. Think of all the fairy's you can make with this graphic. I've included the back as well, as the printed writing is so lovely as well. You can see some old tape residue on the back, which adds a bit of character to the piece, I think. Be sure to click on the images to enlarge them.
Here's another one from the vintage number series. This one is the number 5. I'm afraid it's a bit faded from age, but I wanted to include it in case you are collecting the whole set. This one has a sewing theme and includes, spools of thread, a thimble, scissors, and a pin cushion.
This is a beautiful piece of old Victorian scrap. This piece has a wonderfully illustrated large seashell, a conch shell I believe. On the inner part of the shell is a lovely painted sea scene with a sailboat and sunset.
This is a simple little excerpt from an old French guide book. It's just the word Paris, but I thought the font was quite charming. This could be used in so many different Parisian or travel themed projects.
This is a gorgeous antique graphic of a wonderful pure white Dove. The dove is flying on an aqua blue sky background and is holding a little floral sprig in its mouth. A nice one for any Spring bird themed craft project.
Monday is the day for the vintage numbers series so here it is, this week is the number 4. Today's graphic features several fans, this is particularly appropriate for today as it was 100 degrees here, with a heat index of 109. Yikes, it's not even Summer yet! Hope you are having more pleasant weather in your area.
How amazing is this old postcard?!! This one comes complete with not just one but eight Pierrot clowns! I'm not sure if this was a photo from a costume party or a circus or what, but what a fun photo this is. I especially like the cone shaped hats with the pompoms. An interesting graphic that would be great in any altered art project.
This is a wonderful vintage French postcard! This card depicts a beautiful woman in her finest clothing, including a beaded headband. Behind her is a marvelous brightly colored French flag waving in the wind.
This is a cute Victorian graphic of a black cat's head! She has pretty golden yellow eyes and a cute little bow. You could change the color of the bow to orange and make something fun for Halloween with this one!
This is another wonderful antique printer's ornament! This one features lots of scrolls, flourishes and birds, as well as a few grapes! You could make your own stationary with this one, or perhaps you could wrap it around some cardboard tubing and make some pretty Spring napkin rings. Don't forget you can enlarge this graphic (and the others) by clicking on it.
Okay first off let me start this post by saying, if this happens to be your Great Great Grandma, I do humbly apologize! That said, I recently had a request for some Halloween clipart. Vintage Halloween stuff can be very pricey and hard to find so, I'm afraid I don't have a lot in my collection. However I thought this old photo of this sour faced woman (No offense, I'm sure she was a lovely person) could be a good starting point for a witch collage. I even went so far as to make a primitive hat for her in order to prove my point. Now don't you think she makes a very fine witch after all?
Your welcome to use the hat as well, if you like, although you could probably make a better one yourself! Just click on the images if you would like them larger.
This is a page from an old book, that was to used to advertize a romance novel titled Violetta. I just loved the beautiful font used here in the title and thought this wonderful sepia toned page would make a great background for an ATC.
