Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1888 Advertisements

Today’s antique graphics come from an 1888 Harper’s Magazine. I love this image for Crown Collars. It came from this larger advertisement. I love the typography on these old ads. I think the little emblem at the top would look great on some kind of project. I also love this ad for a laundry ringer, but would love to have the real thing.  I’ve come across a few, but none of them were affordable, but I hope to get one {Read More}

Antique Advertisments Printables

Today I’m bringing you some more antique advertisements from an 1888 Harper’s Magazine. Isn’t this add for men’s collars wonderful?  I love this little emblem on it.  Here’s the full advertisement.  I love the fancy typography. I love this add for a laundry wringer, but I’d really love to own one of these wringers.  I’ve found a few, but they weren’t affordable, but I hope to get one for our laundry room remodel someday.  I thought this ad for silverware {Read More}

Knick of Time Tuesday #40 {Vintage Style Link Party}

Hey there, vintage-lovers!  So glad you stopped in to get your weekly dose of vintage inspiration.I really enjoyed hearing so many responses last weekto my, “Where’s Your Wedding Dress?” question.I don’t feel so badly about my wedding dress,hearing at least a few of you aren’t one of “those” people either! As I shared a few week’s ago, I’ve been using pieces off a super chippy, antique door from our old Missouri house to  create new pieces.  This is my favorite {Read More}

Bragging Rights

I didn’t create this project, but I’m going to claim some bragging rights on it anyway. A few weeks ago, I posted some No. images taken from a clothing pattern from the 1800’s and shared it for Antique Graphics Wednesday.  {Found HERE.} Stacey @ Flickerwhips bought some dollar store photo albums and remade them using  my graphics that she added to some burlap and Osnaburg fabric. They turned out so pretty and I love the blanket stitch edge she added to {Read More}

Another Bud Vase Garland

A few weeks ago, I showed you a bud vase garland I created out of vintage apothecary bottles, and I made another one yesterday. I found a few blue bottles last week, and like how they look paired with the clear glass ones. I love making these – they are so simple, but they look so charming filled with some dried flower sprigs.

Hours upon hours are spent pouring through magazinesand visiting bridal shops.  Or perhaps they made theirown dress or will have someone make it for them.  Each bride feels alittle like {Read More}

A Button Banner

Normally on Thursday, I like to share “Get the Look” projects with you, but I didn’t get around to doing the projectI had planned, so I’m going to show you somethingI did make this week. A few nights ago, in the wee hours of the morning, when all normal people  are sleeping, the button bug bit me again. Actually, this time it was a button and banner bug. It’s been months since I made a banner,  but I helped my mom {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – Three 1800’s Antique Alphabet Fonts

I love letters and numbers and all the many styles of type, so today I’m sharing with you 3 sets of antique alphabet fonts that came from some of my Peterson’s magazines from the mid 1800’s and were included in the magazine for marking on fabric to stitch. I hope you’ll enjoy them too! If you use them on any projects, I’d love it if you would share a photo with me!  This one is a gorgeous alphabet that was probably {Read More}
