Vintage Photographs- The Christmas Play

My bf loves old photographs as much as I do. He picked these up at an estate sale along with a bunch of others that were of the area where we live- only taken about 70 years ago. Pretty cool! These are from the collection and so cute! They are marked Christmas Play, 1940. I love the costumes!

Vintage Grocery Stamps

Thank you so much for all of your suggestions yesterday. I will probably go over to the school to see what I can do.
I purchased a bag full of these old grocery stamps at an estate sale a few years back. I'm not quite sure why I bought them but here's few for you to use in your crafts.

Vintage Graduation Program

Too early to be wishing for graduation day already?

My bf and I live directly across from an elementary school and school started last week. While we enjoy 2 1/2 months of complete quiet bliss during the summer, it is hell twice a day to live here during the rest of the year. Cars block the street with parents picking up their kids in the morning and afternoon and I'm always worried that someone will hit my car while rudely turning around in our driveway. In fact I think someone already has scratched my car but I can't prove it because I wasn't watching at the time. We put the trash cans up to block the entrance to our driveway but people hit them anyway. Sigh.

Anyway, here is a really pretty Victorian graduation program I've been holding on to for quite some time. Enjoy! -Sarah

Vintage Photograph- Portrait Week

This weekend I went through some bins I had on a high shelf that I don't get to very often. I found some great old portraits that I had collected years ago. This week I will show you some of my favorites! Brother and sister perhaps? Boy I bet he turned out to be one handsome man! -Sarah

Vintage Clip Art- Dolls of the World

As a child, I wasn't really into dolls much- I was more of the stuffed animal type. However, as I get older I really like dolls more. Some of my favorite are from this Etsy shop called, Cart Before the Horse. Their hand painted faces are just extraordinary. Anyway, here is today's image of dolls around the world. Have a great weekend everyone! -Sarah

Vintage Book Plate

I love to read and I love books! I love to visit the library and even have library cards for every city library around. (However, I haven't visited a couple in a while because a have a few fines and therefore have been banned from checkout until those are repaid. Don't share that with anyone.)

I always have a couple of books around that I'm reading at one time. One that I'm reading now is. "The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth: Popularity, Quirk Theory, and Why Outsiders Thrive After High School" by Alexandra Robbins. It's about how the kids in high school that weren't popular and therefore labeled "geeks" (e.g. myself), come out on top in the end because of the different way they are wired. It's very good!

Anyway, here is today's image, a vintage bookplate with room to fill in your name.
