February Sponsorships

Just wanted to let you all know that I am taking new sponsors for February! The current cost is a bargain at only $10 a month. The ad size is currently 125px x 125px and if I get a few more, I will be rotating them on the sidebar for maximum exposure. Email me at thevintagemoth@gmail.com to sign up for advertising. Please note that I am only taking g-rated, child safe ads at this time. Thanks!

Free Vintage Valentine Image- For the Disinterested Valentine

I think this antique valentine is too funny! It's perfect for the one who is just not interested in Valentine's Day (or maybe the one giving her the valentine.)Also, yesterday I received a couple of messages with some viewers who have used my images in their projects. Yay! Here is a little show and tell.

This was made by Jennifer of Scrap de Jenny. Her blog has some great pictures of some scrapbook projects she put together. Here is one where she used the vintage child ornament. Adorable!

And here Megan from Lilac and Lavender used my vintage lilac image in a gift tag. She also has a few more (along with a bunch of other images) that you can download for free on her site.Thank you so much for sharing Jennifer and Megan! I love to see what you all do with the images!

Free Vintage Image- Baby in a Bonnet

This image was taken from the cover of a Victorian age book titled, "The Easy Book" which features a bunch of children's stories. I loved how children were illustrated with big doe eyes and rosy cheeks in that era. -Sarah

Vintage Advertisement- Wool Raincoat

Here is today's image. It is slightly inspired by waking up this morning with dark cloudy skies outside and the hope of rain. Doesn't look like it's going to happen however- the clouds are already dissipating.
