Vintage Dictionary Page Printables

If you read my post a few days ago, about how I managed to drown my laptop in the bathtub, I’m happy to report that my husband saved the day (and all my saved files)!  After letting the laptop dry out for several days, he removed the hard drive and tried installing it in  another computer to see if it was ruined or not.  Believe it or not, it appears that all my saved files and photos were there!  There were 50,000 files that he had to save to our external hard drive, which took about 5 hours to do.  Obviously, I haven’t gone through all of them and they saved in a pretty random way, but I did find some important files that I really needed, so I’m really thankful.  When I was searching for some photos today, I came across three vintage dictionary pages that I realized I’ve never shared before.  One has the word, “Journey” as an entry word, one has “Sunday”, and the other has “Tick Tock”.  These could be used on scrapbook pages, or other fun projects.

  1. Oh Angie, I am SO glad your husband was able to save your files! I use a solid state drive as external data storage. Small, portable and very cost effective. 🙂 I do plan on installing a solid state drive in my laptop also.
    Thank you for the dictionary pages as well. 🙂 Not sure where I am going to use them yet. 🙂
    PS – VERY excited to know my orders of your stencils are coming my way. 🙂

  2. So happy your computer is back up and running and I love the dictionary pages!

    Perfect for Christmas!

    Happy day!

    • Well, the computer is still dead, KariAnne, as the motherboard is a goner, but my files are saved, and that’s the important thing! I could replace the computer, but not all those files!

  3. I too am glad your files survived. I learned the hard way that laptops do NOT, in fact, like coffee, hazelnut flavored or otherwise!!!

    Love your site! Keep on keepin’ on!

  4. Glad to hear that your husband saved the files! Thank you for the pages….

  5. Hi Angie,
    My heart sank the other day when you shared that your laptop had taken the proverbial “dive” into your tub! And not knowing if all of you beautiful photos and your hard work would be lost forever…what a horrible feeling that had to be for you.
    But alas your wonderful husband to the rescue, and you can feel that warm and fuzzy return! YAY!!! So happy for you! 🙂
    Thank you for always sharing the antique printables and the photos with us. Love the dictionary pages and the banner idea!
    Have a great day!

    • Thanks Cate -there were some really important files on that hard drive, so I’m so overjoyed he was able to save it. Sorting through all hose files to find what I need is a challenge, but I’ll just have to work through them patiently. Hope you find something fun to do with the dictionary pages! 🙂

    Thank you Angie for the dictionary pages and i am so glad you were able to get some of your files from your drowned computer. Your husband is a wonder.

  7. HALLELUJAH, your files are all saved!! I’ll rejoice with you!! Your husband is so multi-talented!!

  8. Oh, Angie, you are so fortunate. My computer crashed the other day and I lost EVERYTHING ! Years of pictures and files-I’m just sick about it. I’m sure you had more than I did though so I’m so happy for you.

    • I’m so sorry you lost your photos too, Carla. It’s such a sickening feeling. I had a computer stolen a few years ago, and it had several years worth of photos of my kids on it, and it just broke my heart, as I’d never printed the photos. I recommend you take your computer someplace like Staples and see if there’s any way they can recover what was on your hard drive – it’s worth a shot!

  9. Oh, thank goodness your husband was able to save all of those files…that must’ve been one very satisfying “Pheeew moment”! I can definitely relate to that sinking feeling you get when you’ve lost something precious…we had a fire last year that took everything…photo albums as well as our computers…I now know the value of backing files up at least three times over. Some may think that’s overkill, but when you think about it, photos are something you can’t replace and there are documents that can’t be replaced, either. You just never know when disaster may strike, unfortunately.

    I am also glad that these wonderful dictionary pages were saved so that we can benefit from your sharing them with us! I think the tick-tock page is so dear…and it really fits well with your blog’s name! 🙂

    • That’s so tragic that you lost everything, Susan! Other than our family, photos are the one thing you really can’t replace if something happens to our home. I’m so very sorry you lost ours. You are smart (much smarter than I am!) to take the extra precautions now!

  10. Am so glad to hear that your husband saved all your files. The Lord blesses us in amazing ways. Thank you for the dictionary pages and your incredible blog. I enjoy it so much. Have fun recouping all your files. Take care and God Bless.

  11. <3 <3 <3 these pages.

    Any chance of a version with the word "Love" on it?
    If it's not too cheeky to ask.

    So relieved to hear that there is some good news regarding your laptop.
    What a pain-in-the-patooty you have subjected to. xx

  12. How WONDERFUL that your husband was able to “save” your files! Thank goodness for handy husbands! You better think of something really special as a reward! And no need to share what it might be!

  13. Thanks so much for sharing these! So much more interesting than the book pages I recently used from a book about Prince Charles! LOL! The banner is adorable, too!

  14. Holy cow 50,000 files !!!
    These would be so beautiful lining the back of a vintage style book case – LOVE !!!

  15. Hi! Would you happen to have the files for the letter pages D, E, C, L, A and N?

  16. Hello Angie,
    I see this post is from a couple yrs ago. You asked what ppl would do with the dictionary photo. Right now im working on ideas for things put on bottles. Weather i paint, etch, single positive words. Then add lights. But your photo is an idea to wrap around the bottle. With lights. I think it will be very cool. Ty

  17. Hello Angie,

    I love your dictionnary photo. What I would ike to know is on what kind of paper do you print it on, so it’s looks real like yours do. Thank you.

  18. I’ll find a good use for these dictionary pages.
