Bee Image Clip Art from McGuffey’s Reader

 Today, I have a charming bee image from an early 1900’s McGuffey’s Reader.  The bee is hovering near a vine with blooms on it.  It would be perfect for an image transfer project, but for those of you gifted with painting skills, I think it would also be so pretty with watercolors added to the image, for a greeting card or wall art.

Here is the complete school book page the image was on – isn’t it cute?!  I love all types of vintage ephemera, but antique school books will always be one of my very favorites.  I especially love the primers for young ages, because they include the pronunciation symbols.

  3. Thank you for sharing! How do you keep it on the glass? Does the tape still feel sticky after you remove the paper?
