Here are some gorgeous women’s fashion images from the early 1900’s. The backgrounds have been removed, so these images can be layered over other images using programs like Photoshop or Gimp.  Just right-click, save and print to use on some lovely project – and make sure to let me know so I can brag  about your talents!

Shop Talk

Isn’t it funny how some weeks you can go to yard sales, auctions and thrift stores and not find a thing, and other weeks you can load up your vehicle with treasures.  Two weeks ago, I went to the auction and they didn’t really have much of anything that interested me, and I came home with just 2 things,but last week, it was a goldmine of things I liked, a won quite a few of them.So, if you’ve ever gone to an auction {Read More}

Sonday – Old Time Religion

Although the words of this very old song may sound a bit simple and not the least bit profound, they hold a lot of truth. The “religion” referred to in this song, isn’t speaking about a particular church denomination.  It’s speaking about God,  his character, his written word to us through the Bible,  and the relationship he wants with us. It’s truth that isn’ just “old”….it’s timeless. Thus says the LORD: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where {Read More}

If It Weren’t for Bad Luck…

I refuse to be a victim of bad (dumb) luck. I don’t really believe in bad luck or people being jinxed,but if I did, I’d say I’m a candidate for both when it comes to mirrors and glass. In the last several months, I’ve managed to break 2 glass photo frame inserts,1 glass clock insert and 1 mirror – mainly by placing them in dumb placeswhere they were likely to get broken. I bought THE most beautiful antique dresser mirror from {Read More}

It’s a Keeper & a Legal Adult

My parents and I, and 3 of my 4 kids hit the road last weekend,to go on the Spoon River Drive in Illinois. The Spoon River Drive is a scenic drive through somebeautiful farm country and small towns, during the peek ofthe prettiest display of fall colors.   The small towns alongthe route are filled with vendors selling handmade goods,vintage items and lots of food and there are plenty of yardsales to visit along the way as well. Unfortunately, weather {Read More}

Thursday’s Theme {chalkboards} & Chalkboard Link Party

I told you a few weeks ago that I’m more productive when I choose one theme at a time to work on and I really focused on my theme this week.   Anything in my workshop that I didn’t have a “plan” for became a candidate for becoming a chalkboard, because you can turn just about anything into a chalkboard. First I’ll show you the latest ones I’ve created, then some past ones. Originally, this wooden piece was the top of {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – Measuring Cup & Spoons

I love these 2 images of a metal measuring cup and spoons. I think they would make cute images on recipe cards or on flour sack towels. The individual images below have all had the backgrounds removed so they can be layered over other images, using programs like Photoshop or Picmonkey. The magazine these images came from was generously shared by Audrey @ Audrey @ Timeless Treasures. Blessings, Angie

Antique Graphics Wednesday – Pretty Silhouette Frame

This is such a pretty frame with a woman’s silhouette at the top. It was the inside cover page from a 1913 The Modern Priscilla magazine. I’ve removed the background so you can layer this image over other images.

Burning the Midnight Oil

Sorry for the blurry photo, but my little point and shoot doesn’t  handle nighttime images with bright lights. This year, the field across from our house was planted in corn, and this farmer has some long hours ahead of him to finish the job.  I just want to tip my hat to the farmers across America who are working late into the night, to bring in the harvest that feeds our nation.
