Antique Graphics Wednesday – Vintage Alphabet Flashcards

 I purchased a few sets of school flashcards from the 1960’s at a flea market this summer, with cute illlustrations on each letter card. The only problem with buying sets of flashcards is that you only receive one of each letter, but having these images, you can print whatever letters you need to form words. Flashcards like these make great banners, as well as photo props, so I hope you enjoy them. I left a little bit of a black border around {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1910 Advertistments

I love this 1910 advertisement for McCall’s Patterns and magazine. The stylish lady image looks so pretty and I really like the typography in the circles with the prices, too. Here’s a lighter version of the ad. And, here is just the price circle, because I think it would make an adorable tag to add to jars and boxes. The magazines these images came from were generously sent to me by Audrey @ Audrey @ Timeless Treasures. Blessings, AngieYou Can Often {Read More}

It’s often said that home is where you hang your heart.Where do you call HOME?The place of your birth, where you live in now,or a foreign land you dream of?For me, all 3 states I’ve lived in hold a little piece of my heart.

A Poor Little Pony

I picked up this poor little pony at an auction recently. He’s been on the trail for too many years and is plum worn out. He’s only got 1 full leg left and most of his “coat” is missing. Someone stabilized his neck with a metal “harness” on both sides. His little “saddle” is still in great condition though and is so sweet. His rocking base is still in very nice condition also. I’m not exactly sure what I’ll do {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1905 Ladies Boot Advertisement

This wonderful image of a ladies’ boot came from a 1905 Ladies Home Journal magazine.  The background has been removed, so this image can be layered over other images using programs like  Photoshop and Gimp. Here is the original advertisement.  Not only are antique advertisements a fascinating glimpse of the past, but I find it interesting to see how long some magazines have managed to survive and stayed strong in the business, as Ladies Home Journal has. The magazines these {Read More}
