Antique Graphics Wednesday – Cottage & Floral Borders and Frames

Summer’s almost over, but I love this border that came from an early 1900’s
Etude magazine.  The back pages of the magazines had an
advertising section with ads aimed at singers and musicians.
This cute border was for the section of summer school advertisements.
Here it is with the words removed, so you can add your own text.
This beautiful floral frame was originally the title page
of a 1906 book called, “Benjamin Franklin; His Life”.
I think this would make a pretty recipe card.

Did any of you attend summer school as a child?
I didn’t and wouldn’t have been happy about it.
I liked lazy summer days as a kid and would
have seriously rebelled if I’d been forced to sit behind a desk.

  1. When I was in high school I worked as a teacher’s aide for the summer migrant school. I remember it being a fun time and helped the kids keep and learn new skills. It was a time when their parents worked in the fields thinning beets and hoeing the weeds out of the sugar beet, onion, and bean fields. The only summer school I went to was during my college years. Those sessions were more relaxed than the regular college classes. Cute graphics. Thanks.♥♫
