Antique Rhinoceros Image- Free Clipart Image

Hey guys! I went to an estate sale this morning and found a few antique books from the late 1800's - 1920's that were falling apart but perfect to use for the blog. One of the books is called "Wood's Natural History" from 1899. It includes all sort of different animal images and I really love this rhino profile. I've posted the original image here with the original colored paper and one that is just black and white.

Antique Cigarette Card

I found this old cigarette card on Etsy and just fell in love. I don't know why I am drawn to old medical genre illustrations but I hope that you will enjoy them too. Here is an illustration of compression of an artery. I love that when I smell the card, I can still smell the tobacco that it came with. I don't smoke but something about that smell reminds me of my childhood.
Have a fantastic weekend and I will be back on Monday with some more images!

Vitalogy and Estate Sale Pics

On Friday, I went to an Estate sale over in the "old money" part of Phoenix. I love going to these because these houses are usually pretty big. This one was over 4000 square feet with a separate living quarters on the side of the property. They also usually hold a lot of stuff. Oh and I'm nosy. How else am I going to tour and see the inside some of Phoenix's largest real estate?
Although the house was dated (from the 60's) the view from their front porch while I waited in line to get in was quite pretty to look at. 

Here are some of the interesting items I saw at the sale:

I only purchased 3 items: an antique Vitalogy book (super excited about this), a 70's toy Mr. Peanut, Peanut Butter maker, and some vintage paper treat holders. 

Here is a page from the 1926 Vitalogy book. The pages were already coming apart so I don't feel too bad about tearing it open more to be able to get better scans to share with you! It is a page of "professional remedies" used for certain illnesses from the 20's.

Happy St. Patty's Day! Free Victorian Image

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I'm afraid I don't have any images currently that are related to the holiday but I do have a spring image. Here is a Victorian image of a girl with flowers.

She's adorable and I love the little lady bug crawling on the flower. Tomorrow's post will feature what I found at the weekend's estate sale and a new vintage image! -Sarah

Antique Floral Wallpaper

Here is an old piece of antique wallpaper with adorable tiny flowers. I really like the way the paper is frayed on the edges and slightly stained.
