Angels For Every Season

perfect for Christmas cards
Victorian Angels
Adorable Christmas Angels

You just can't go wrong with angels!!  They are so perfect for cards, boxes, they are beautiful in a collage or can be decoupaged on baby furniture or the Christmas angels are lovely on tins, gifts of home made candy and cookies wrapped in colorful paper and with a homemade tag  displaying a sweet image of an angel!!  I never tire of these pictures of angels and have so many I want to share with you.  You are free to use them in any way you please.  They are here to enjoy, not put limits on them and I believe something so beautiful belongs to us all.

Free Digital Image - Believe In Yourself

This is a digital image I just created and decided it was so pretty I wanted to share it with you as a freebie!  I truly love playing around with pictures and wish I could devote more time to it.  You may use it any way you wish.  All I ask is credit for the image and do not share, but send them here to download.  I hope you like it.
Be sweet!!!

Pink Pretties And A Beauty With Yellow Flowers

Lady with yellow flowers

A Doll For Christmas

Girl With Pink Roses

I believe this is an old Humphrey print
Today I am sharing four of the sweetest images  ... from a lady surrounded by yellow blossoms to a beautiful old Humphrey print.  They are each pretty and unique graphics, free and perfect for craft projects.  I haven't learned to transfer them to fabric yet, but I have seen some adorable little pillows, even coverlets, made using such prints as these.  I am sure it is easy to do.  I saw one decorated with a print that had been transferred to fabric, then pearls surrounded the image and silk flowers (or they may have been fabric) flowers decorated the rest.  It was just beautiful.  I know they are so pretty used in decorating a box or any kind of collaged object as that is mostly what I love to do.  Some of the finished items absolutely look like heirlooms.  They are SO pretty.  I especially love to decorate and craft with angel graphics and those of cute little children.  Whatever you decide to do with them is up to you!  I just hope you are happy with them and like them as much as I do.
Be sweet as always!!!

Three Lovely Old Santas And Not A Pumpkin In Sight!!!

Oh, I hope you like these 3 sweet Santas!  I love Christmas graphics and the old Santa images are gorgeous and make the most beautiful Christmas card you can imagine!  I used homemade cards all done in blue tones one year and they were very pretty.  I am planning to use more variety this year.  You can never go wrong with the traditional reds and greens, but I love the burgandy graphics and other colors as well.  It is just a little different and unique.  Please use these free images any way you wish and I would love to see what you have made if you would like to send me a picture I will post it for everyone to enjoy.  
Thank you for coming to my little blog and I appreciate my followers more than you know.  I love all my visitors and read every comment!
Be sweet and treat others the way you would like to be treated!!

Blue Beauties

These ladies with just a hint of blue are positively lovely!  There is something about the color of blue that is so soothing.  I could look at it all day.  These little pretties would look great paired with a matching background, a couple of floral sprays and a bird or two ... maybe even a nest with eggs!  Whatever you come up with, I am positive it will be lovely adorned with these blue beauties!!!
Be sweet!

Never Too Early To Think Of Christmas (especially for Taylor Swift Fanatics)

I just love these little Christmas images!  I tell you, all it takes for me is breathing crisp, cool air and my mind wanders off to snowy days with lights sparkling in the dark, lighting up the night with every color of the rainbow!!  I long for the candy canes, the sweet apple cider with red hots that simmer and leave a wonderful aroma wafting throughout the house ... dragging out the stockings and untangling the lights that I swear every year will be the last time they will be in such a tangled mess when I retrieve them for the next season.  It doesn't take much for me to be as excited as a kid on Christmas Eve trying to get a peek at Santa as he slips in to leave the presents and grab his cookie, wolfing down the glass of milk so he can hurry to his next stop.  I swear when I was little I saw reindeer tracks on our lawn!  Is there anyone who can say with a certainty that I did not?  My great grand children love that story and every word is true! 
I have loads of old Victorian Santas, children and Christmas angels so I will begin to slip a few in now and then.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do and that you can use them in a project or just to print, matt, frame and enjoy!!! 
Just have to say it, you know ... be sweet!!!

Free Images - The Innocence of Angels

Something about those angel images I just love and can never get enough of!  Seems like there is an endless supply of angel graphics so apparently I am not alone in the feeling.  They impart a childlike innocence, so pure and an absolute joy to look at and to incorporate into any number of craft projects.  I think they are beautiful decoupaged on a box with little beads, bits of lace or ribbon and whatever your mind can conjure up!  I hope you like these and find a way to use them.  If so, I would love to see how they are used.
Be sweet!!

Ancestors of Our Land

These are very, very old pictures.  They are very unique.  Look at the high cheekbones and the strength in those faces!!  My paternal grandmother was an Indian and my mom had the thick black hair and high strong cheek bones as did my grandfather which had been passed on from my great grammy!  My mother was very beautiful and into her seventies, still had that dark thick full head of hair!  It never turned fully gray, only a strand or two here and there.  I am proud of my heritage.
I hope you are pleased with the pictures and like them as much as I do.
Be sweet and treat others as you would like to be treated.
