Lady In Pink Dress Vintage 1859 Godey's Lady's Book Image

This beautiful Image
Originally comes from a larger
plate that Antique Images posted on
her blog last week.
I love the detailed etchings of these
highly detailed fashions.  This image  I have cropped and 
made into a png from a larger plate.  I thought
she would make a very pretty card or tag.

things have slowed just a bit.
Tonight I have a lovely

Vintage Chinatown Postcards San Francisco USA 1940s

I recently found this fantastic set of 
tinted vintage post cards.  The traveler
who collected them really had an eye 
for her area (Yes-I say her because she made
notes on some of the cards)
It looks like she tried to find the photo or a 
photo card that matched the tinted cards
she found.  The whole collection
is very interesting.
I hope you enjoy them.

Maps United States of America 1819 Free Vintage Image

Recently I came across a fantastic student book
filled with hand drawn maps.  If you are old enough
(eek--like me) 
you may remember doing these sheets or booklets in
class.  I still have mine from 1st through 6th grade
but we used crayons so mine never ever looked like 
I love how artistic this map is.  It has been all hand
colored with pencils.  
I will be posting all of the maps from
this students booklet. She has pages of 
study notes and all the state maps too.
I hope you enjoy this piece.

Vintage Button and Sewing Notion Collection From Leaping Frog Designs

Sometime in early October
as I was sifting  through
eBay one evening
I came  across a button
that intrigued me.
Rather large, made of metal
it was part of a larger lot.
I placed a bid and went 
along my merry way.
7 days later in my inbox
the message that I had "Won"
my lovely button and
her sisters.
I have plans for that button...It is going to 
be my master for one done
in silver with tiny fresh water
pearls from the Willamette River
Was I ever surprised by what came with it.
Beautiful beautiful buttons
Glass, lovely Victorians, Bakelite and
Mother of Pearl.
Rhinestones, Silver, Brass, Gold
Button heaven
Buckles of several eras and
Some beautiful packages
of needles
I love the wood needle case and
when I slip my fingers into
the thimbles I can just
imagine the hours and hours
of mending or dress making
they had helped make.

There are many more items
that I did not take pictures of
Tiny perfume boxes filled with little
shell buttons, another filled with
needles and pins.
A true treasure trove.
Some of these pieces may
make it into other projects.
For now they have found a new
home with me. I will cherish them
for years to come.

Beautiful Frames Free Vintage Images From Leaping Frog Designs

It seems I can never have enough

It is from an old card

left it empty for you 
to fill in with your own
words or image.
