Vintage Images For You To Be Creative With

Hey Ya'll. I know it's been over a week since I posted and promised to get you those scanned vintage photos. Well here are some of them. I have scanned both photos and the backs of the cards because I just love their penmanship and advertising. I'm not used to scanning so I hope that these came out okay. You may or may not have to size them. And believe me this isn't even the half of them. I have lots more that I'll be sharing with you. I wish I could claim these as being from my long line of distinguished family members but alas, I cannot. Aren't they great though? These are free for you to use ~ ya'll all share so much with me. Please just link back to me if you post them. Most of all if you make something with them please send me pics so I can show them. I just love to see every ones creations. That's the best part.

Hey, I know there must be someone who can help me out there. I would like to host Fall Friday's starting this week. Everyone could link their fall photos, whether it be nature scenes, porch decorating (one of my favorites), Halloween or fall decorating, fall in the cemeteries ( I think it's such a peaceful place, I know I'm weird), just use your imagination. Oh' an especially fall craft/decorating projects. Ya' know I gotta love them. The only problem is (big to me, maybe little to you) I have never hosted a link up site type thing before. How do you create a tag or button or whatever you call it. HELP ME, HELP ME! I would love to have all your help in posting to make this a success too.

Also be sure to come back tomorrow. I should have a new give away listed by then. I'll give you a hint ~ Halloween.

Awe.... Isn't she (or maybe he) cute!

Look at that date ~ 1887

Doesn't she look young in an everybody looks 50 back then sorta way.

Don't you just want to squeeze those cheeks?

You don't see beautiful scrolling like that anymore. I so wish I have the talent of drawing and penmanship.
Wouldn't you just love to have all that old lace. She's so precious.

Umm...looks like he's at a ball just before leaving for the Civil War. This one is an actual tin type photo.

I'm assumming this is 1897. I love it being to: Auntie Snow.

I hate to say, but you know your all thinking it, is this a man or a woman. Ha-ha.

Isn't the back of this card pretty.

That's all for now but come back again because I'll be listing these for awhile. Don't forget to send me a photo of what you create. I'd love to see what you do with these images.
