Antique Graphics Wednesday – Bird and Birdcage

Today I’ve got a lovely silhouette of a bird and birdcage from and antique children’s music book. I’ve removed all the background, so you can layer the image over other images using programs like Picmonkey or Photoshop. Here, I’ve layered it over an early 1900’s German song book page.  Here’s the image, without any background.If you save it as a JPEG file, it willshow up with a white background. Stop by tomorrow for more imagesfrom this book.  If you like {Read More}

Shepherds, Angels and Recent Finds

I think one of my very favorite parts of the Christmas season is Christmas plays, and musicals.  Although I love seeing well-rehearsed productions, I adore church plays with lots of little kids. When you have a stage full of little kids, funny things can and will happen, regardless of how much they practiced or how much hair their director has pulled out of her head for the last few months trying to get them ready. My youngest son is in {Read More}

Thursday’s Theme – {The Wood Pile}

Last week, I was in the mood to come up with more projects using the wood from my vast “wood pile”. The goal was to get the wood off my shelf, and turned into useful things, and coat and jewelry hooks are very useful, so that’s what I did with these 4 pieces. A old barn wood piece, became a doorknob “hook”. Another barn wood piece has some new feathered friends, and makes a pretty place to hang jewelry or keys. I {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – 3 Chicken Images

Today’s antique graphics should give you something to squawk about! All 3 of these images came from an antique children’s school book. I really love this one that was the top border of a page.  The background has been removed, so you can layer it over other images using Picmonkey, Photoshop or Gimp. These chickens look like they’re having a serious discussion! I like the inquisitive look on this chicken, and the sweet thatched-roof cottage in this image. Here are {Read More}
