Vintage Ads

vintage ad that makes me wonder 'what in the heck were you thinking?'

I have taken Grove;s Chill Tonic, but believe had I  seen this ad as a child, NOTHING could have forced my mouth open!

Well, it would seem not all vintage graphics are as sweet and precious as those of the innocent little wide eyed children and the lovely old images of angels with wings outspread!  However, these old ads are as much of our past as the simple beauty of the florals, the sweet valentine cupids, playful children and graceful ladies ... though the message is not one we would send today, they are a part of our history, a piece of our past and therefore should be looked at, proud of how far we've come.
They will still be used I believe in works of art, altered art, ATC's, whatever ... they may or may not be of use to anyone ... they DO depict a time when the thinking was much different than today.
That is my reasoning, for it is a time we have all come from.  I do hope you have found them to be of interest, if nothing else ... you gotta' give them that ...but a baby shaving, a fat pig with a child's face ... I ask again, "What in the heck were they thinking?".  Boggles the mind!
Be sweet and look for angels tomorrow!!!  Treat others kindly, give them a reason to smile!!

These two little vintage girls are about the sweetest images I have ever seen!  They are just precious, so innocent and I know for sure they will end up on your art in some fashion!  I hope you will enjoy using these as much as I enjoy just looking at them, for they truly are beautiful and have a quality of peace and contentment about them.
Enjoy and keep sweet!

Vintage Cards - Delicate Floral, Sweet Children

Beautiful vintage card

Sweet little children vintage card

Both of these two vintage cards have such a sweet and innocent beauty about them.  The flowers on the first card are absolutely gorgeous, so delicate and the second card with the precious little children picking flowers beside a stream of water is SO peaceful, just looking at it brings a feeling of joy and well being. 
I know these are two you will enjoy and find a place for in your art work.  Please feel free to use them in any way you wish.  There are no terms of use. 
Enjoy and keep sweet!

My New Blog Design By Kaye of WAHMaholic Blog Designs

My dear, sweet little friend, Kaye Mendez, of WAHMaholic Blog Designs has done a complete makeover of my humble little blog!!  I absolutely did not recognize it. 
She has done a fantastic job and aren't the graphics beautiful?  Don't you just love the little blue flowered cart filled with purple flowers?
She says she is wicked awesome, but don't take her word for it!!  Numerous testimonials speak of her work, which is fantastic.  Just give her an idea, even the slightest, of what you might like or want and she can take it and run!!!  Quick as a wink, before you can blink twice, you have a blog that totally stands out and makes you wonder how in the world did Kaye know EXACTLY what I wanted?
I am pleased as punch and now have to search my files for something to post for you.
Give Kaye a visit and you will be SO glad you did.  I don't know how she does what she does!!!!
Be sweet!  XXXOOXXO
