Antique Graphics Wednesday – Antique Clock Faces & Hymns

 You may remember that last month I ordered these incredible old clock faces from an Etsy seller in Latvia. I love having some with foreign names on them. It occurred to me that some of you may want to use these faces in projects of your own, so here are some of the faces that came from small clocks. They look wonderful grouping together in a vintage vignette. Just right-click, save and print when you are ready to use them. {Read More}

{Son}day – Called to Serve

51 years ago, John F. Kennedygave his inaugural address which includedthese well-known words,“…my fellow Americans:ask not what your country can do for you…ask what you can do for your country.”I think the same kind of wisdom canand should be applied to God’s church today. Ask not what your church can do for you;ask what you can do for your church.  Imagine what your church{and the neighborhood it serves}could be like, 51 years from today,if every God-fearing membercommitted to asking themselves,not {Read More}

Halloween Skeleton Images -1893 Gray’s Anatomy Illustrations

Today’s images come from a 1893 Gray’s Anatomy book that is filled with fascinating medical illustrations. These are wonderful to frame as unusual wall art, but would be great for altered art projects and Halloween skeleton images printables.   I’d love to hear about it if you create something fun with these! Blessings, Angie

In an attempt to bring it into the next century, I painted it white. While that made it more bearable, and the shelves were handy for displaying collectibles, it just wasn’t cutting it. Exhibit B When we decided to start remodeling {Read More}
