Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1917 Bicycle Advertisement

I absolutely love this old bicycle advertisement that came from an early 1900’s magazine.  I haven’t had time to work on it, but I’m determined to use this graphic on some type of project.  I hope you enjoy it as well! This first image is cropped. This is the complete, original advertisement. I’ve lightened the cropped image here. The magazine this image came from was generously provided by Audrey @ Audrey @ Timeless Treasures. Drop in and say “thanks” to her! {Read More}

If using Picmonkey, save this image {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – Christmas Silhouette

This pretty silhouette was part of an advertisement for fine fragrances by the Roger & Gallet Company.  I found it in a 1926 magazine. I think it would make pretty gift tags. Recently, I shared some chalkboard inspired gift tags and cards that I created and Megan @ Lilacs and Lavender created some really lovely versions of her own using my chalkboard background.  Be sure to see them all.

Hunkering Down

I love snow and cold weather…for 2 days.Those 2 days are Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.Before and after those two days,I prefer the other 3 seasons. As the weather gets colder, I have lessand less desire to head out to my workshop.I’m grateful I have a large workshop witha lot of storage space, but it isn’t temperature-controlled,so there are only a few months of the yearwhen it’s comfortable to work out there,when it isn’t too hot or too cold.

Okay, now you can feel sorry for her…

Remember this sweet old pooch that is a trash raider? Remember, I told you not to let her sweet, old lady face fool you, because even though she’s missing a front leg, she’s still pretty darn spry for her age? Well…you can feel sorry for her now. Apparently during the night, she decided to chase after coyotes (because she doesn’t seem to realize that a) she’s getting old and b) she only has 3 legs. Unfortunately, she didn’t catch any {Read More}

To Paint or Not To Paint?…That Is The Question

To paint or not to paint thisold piano?  That is the question.Its finish is quite worn and chipped.And, I’m very inspired by photos like this.And this. Can I get a vote?

Thursday’s Theme {A Chair Affair}

I love old wooden folding chairs. They always sell well in my shop, so I never pass them up when I find them at a reasonable price. Usually, I find just one or two at a time, but a few weeks ago, I got 36 antique wooden folding chairs at an auction – enough for seating at a small reception! They all appear to have comefrom one business – which according to the backof some of the chairs was a funeral {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – 5 Grocery Store Advertisements

I’ve shared with you in the past that my childhood dream was to own a general store, complete with with shelves of glass jars filled with candies, bolts of fabric, and bins filled with peanuts and potatoes. I wanted a squeaky screen door and floorboards that creaked when you walked on them. There had to be a porch with benches out front, so neighbors could sit and chat about the price of gas and complain about the weather. These 5 {Read More}
