Antique Photograph- You Can Call Me Al

I went to an estate sale this past Friday and picked up a few antique photographs, a couple of Mother's Day cards (I will show those soon) and and 1920's game. Although it was really crowded and the wait to get in was 30 min. I have to say the sale was a success! Here is one of the photos I purchased. On the back there was a name written as (I think) Al Carsau. So yes, you can call this handsome gentleman, Al!

Antique Trade Card- Cough Syrup

Here is an antique trade card for Coose's Cough Syrup, I believe from the Victorian Era. Pretty images for spring!
And here is the same card with the font removed so that you can add your own message!

Not only is this antique trade card cute on the front.

Here is another butterfly to add to the collection. This pretty butterfly comes from Dover's Greatest Clips CD-Rom book which is currently available on Amazon.

Vintage Illustration- Falcon

He (she?) is so realistic looking that he looks like he could just fly off of the page!

Antique Scrapbook Cover

I purchased this antique book of scraps last year mainly because of the beautiful cover. They just aren't made like this anymore.

Antique Easter Card

I was quite delighted a couple weeks ago when I received several comments about The Vintage Moth featured on Country Living! I actually had no idea that this story was coming until I saw some comments on the blog. It really made my day!

Here is today's image- An antique Easter card. Can you believe that Easter is coming up this weekend? Sheesh, time is just flying!

Antique Advertising Card

I'm baaack......
Yep, I had to take a little hiatus from the blog due to well, no time. I accepted a full time temp job for a little extra money and it was really overwhelming, especially with having my felt business on Etsy as well to work on. At the same time, my boyfriend also started his full time job as a manager working 70 hours a week. So let's just say that the house is now a disaster especially since our two cats didn't want to pitch in to help. But I am quite grateful that the gig is now over and everything can get back to normal. I plan to keep this blog going again so more images will be coming your way!
Thanks for hanging in there, waiting patiently for me to be able to get back to blogging. I will be changing a few items here on the blog in the next few days so if you get any errors, it's probably because I'm trying some new stuff out. : ) -Sarah
