Images of yesteryear

I found this children's book in my husbands family cottage. It dated back to 1909 and has some of the most wonderful images and stories. These were two of my favorites. I added the text layer on them after scanning them into the computer. The one of the little girl reminded me of a Get Well card and pardon the pun but it had to be written. The one with the children in the meadow picking flowers, made me think of a gift tag. It reads, I picked this for you. The magenta lettering
does not pop out as much as I would have liked for it to.
I just love childrens book illustrations. Sometimes the images bring back memories of my class sitting in the library and being read to by one of the nuns. I used to love the black and white images and find that I am still drawn to them. Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed them.


  1. Hi Tammy, thanks for stopping by my blog:-) I added the contact info for the person who helped me with the signature.

  2. Hi Tammy,

    I too am drawn to black and white images (I like lots of contrast). I also like sepia tones in photos. That is a darling get well card! Thanks for sharing.
    Hope you are having a good week...

  3. I love those book pages!!! You should frame them! I had a nun as a teacher and she was way cool:)
