This is a super grungy scrap book cover, the image is a chromolithograph and the book dates to the 1880's. The book is huge and in really rough shape, I'm not sure why I bought it since I don't think I can salvage any of the images that are pasted inside. I love worn and grungy things and this guy is pretty rough but he still holds his head high and looks rather regal in his shabbiness. This looks like and old wall mural that is chipping away. Enjoy Deborah

This chromolithograph was pulled from my newest find a vintage scrap book filled with lovely prints that date back to the 1880's. I bought a arm full of paper goodies from a local antique shop the other day and in the mess was two wonderful old scrapbooks. Everything was pasted down in the books, but I was able to remove all the pieces of one book. I'm still working on book 2, there are  lots of little bits in that one and its going to take me forever.
The print is called Sue Autumn and was printed in 1885.
Enjoy Deborah

Here are some great etchings from various childrens magazines and books that date from the 1880-1909. All images are from my personal collection of ephemera. I've done the collage sheets in both JPG and PNG for easy use.
The PNG sheet is missing one of the images the one of the boy as I kept some of the other images in their original size and everything would not fit on the sheet. Love the little boy in the check pants to cute. Take care and enjoy Deborah

With Halloween just around the corner I thought these wonderful etchings would fit the bill. I forgot I had this book "The Witches Frolic" printed in 1888 ( a sure sign that I have way too much stuff).Its a huge book with wonderful images and a fun story written in a cool way, great fonts and little pictures mixed in with the words. I bought it years ago and just put it away and forgot all about it. I had to go on on the hunt trying to find where I stashed it, I'm glad I found it, its a really nifty book. I know the images are dark I tried to clean and lighten them as much as possible without losing any detail.With etchings it quite hard to clean them up.

First off big apology for missing last weeks Free Image Friday, it was just one of those weeks where time flew and I was pulled every which way. Its been that kind of week again but I did  find a few seconds to get sometime up for you all. I know these are not uber old or exciting but still kind of fun.
 These snap shots came from a box of photos I bought at an auction most of the images where taken in Poland between the 40's and looks like 60's. The top image is kind of creepy it was quite damaged with a big fold across the center I tried to clean it up as best as I could. if you look in the top right hand window you can see someone looking out, this gathering reminds me of the Munsters, creepy kids!!!! 
Hope you can find a way to have fun with these Old Country families. Take care Deborah

These lovely lasses came from one of my 1921 Ladies Home Journals. I love these magazines so many wonderful images and oh the fashions!!! I would love to have any one of these dresses and those hats......... These images are great to colour I like using pencil crayons just print them up and colour away. 
Take care Deborah
