Vintage Family Photos

Here's another from my own families photos, handed down through the generations. Today I came to the realization that I'm so lucky to have these, especially when I went to purchase some more old photos today. They aren't in the greatest condition, but I will start scanning them in tomorrow and fix them up for you guys to use. Some of them have been nibbled on by mice, so those will be the hardest to fix up - but I will certainly try!

Also, soon to come will be my new Cafe Press store, where you can buy awesome vintage images on cups, shirts and more! I'm so excited about it, and I hope you will be, too!

World War I Map

Another map from the Great War (WWI) - The maps are pretty durn cool, but the book is soooooo boring!

Family Photos

Another addition of my old family photos - I'm not sure who this one is, though as no one wrote on the back his relation - but please enjoy!

Odd Christian Essay Illustration

This is another insert from "Satan or Christ" - if you look closely, you'll see the ethereal image of Satan peering around the corner at this party.

Music - Dance

This is from an old music book - I loved the colour so I left it - if you need a black and white version, leave a comment and I'll make it for you.

Jesus and the Doctors

From my father in laws Bible from the mid 1880's - young Jesus speaks to doctors.

Family Photos

I'm sharing some of my own personal family photos from centuries past (haha). As you can tell, my family is Scottish (from Edinburgh) and I just love the cane and bowler hat in this image


From a vintage music book - an old image of Brahms

Biblical Map

This map is from an old Bible from the mid 1800's - I liked the bluish tingue to it.


I know its not Halloween for a long while - but you never know when you'll need a Halloween graphic.

Picking Flowers

Spring Fairy

Vintage Music Sheets

Maps from the Great War

I found a book about "The Great War" ie - World War 1 and it had some interesting map illustrations in it.

Winged Flame

Here's a small bullet of a winged torch with a scroll and quill - I rather like it :)

Vintage Stamps

Marble End Paper

I like the tones of red in this end paper - maybe you will, too?

Russian Funeral

An old photo of a Russian Funeral procession.

Music - Bach

My father in law lent me this great old series of music books with a variety of old pictures in them - this one in perticular is Bach.

Strange Vintage Christian Book

Ok - My husband and I were just cleaning out the office upstairs and he found this book I had bought at last years library sale - it's a really bizare book about secular culture vs. church and God - the pictures are kind of out there, but maybe someone will have a use for them?

Hands Hands Everywhere!

The above "Big List of Hands" comes from an old science book in remarkably good shape for a book from the late 1800's. I find hands are a useful graphic for just about any occassion.
