Vintage Clip Art- Girl with Cat

Such a cute victorian image of a girl with her cat. Usually cats are not crazy about being picked up and held (especially by children) but this one looks like it has a grin on its face! -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Portrait of a Bad Hair Day

Kinda poodle-ish in the front, tired in the back. Don't we all have those days? At least they won't be recorded to be seen 100 years from now.
Have a great weekend! -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Little Faces

These little victorian faces looked like tiny angels to me! They are actually really small in size- about 1/2 inch each. It is amazing to me that they were able to last this long! -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Vintage Dress

OMG! I totally forgot to list an image this morning! Yesterday my boyfriend and I spent the day out at estate sales to pick up stuff for my vintage store. We had a lot of success and I found so many cute things. I woke up this morning so excited to wash, clean, and fix the items to sell that I forgot to list a vintage image! Anyway, here is an awesome vintage dress that I wish I could find at an estate sale.
By the way, the suggested dictionary images will be up next week! Have a great weekend! -Sarah

I love these bell shaped flowers but I don't know what they are called. Does anyone know what type of flowers these are?

Vintage Clip Art- Equestrian

I'm not quite sure why I love the equestrian die cuts, but I do.  Maybe because it is a peek into another world that I'm not familiar with.  I tried horseback riding one summer and found it to be quite scary to be that high on an animal, not really in complete control. But I do love horses- when I'm on the ground.  -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Telegraphing Tuesday

This is a really cool image of an 1800's "call center."  Looks like even back then, their supervisor walked up and down the isles to make sure that people were working.        -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Rose

I just received a new batch of Victorian die cuts that I purchased last week in the mail today.  This is one of my favorite flowers in the bunch- although now when I look at it a little closer, lowest bud looks like Seymore from "The Little Shop of Horrors" movie.   -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Cherub in the Garden

I'm not quite sure that this has to do with cooking or baking, (Charter Oak Range made oven ranges in the late 1800's) but it is a pretty picture of a girl sitting in the garden with a cherub.  -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Paper Children

These cute children came with my previous post of the paper doll and clothing.  Normally illustrated children today are portrayed with happy, smiling faces but I thought it was interesting how these facial expressions seem pensive and a bit put off.  -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Giant Squid

This is a really cool illustration of a giant squid taking down a ship. He seems to be staring at me saying, "One move and it's all over for the ship!"   -Sarah
