Free Vintage Images

During a Blog Browse, I came across this cool site The Vintage Moth, where the owner Abbie publishes vintage images to share. As Abbie suggests & after a little research myself, it is not advisable to re-sell the images. They are most likely copyright free, as the artists and authors are most likely long since past. Luckily for us there great work will live on :)

Whilst on hols this Summer in France, I snagged 2 old Paris newspapers from 1906 full of fabulous Vintage Adverts & Images.

So I dusted off the scanner and here are the first three. Just click on the image to make it bigger, then right click & save. I hope to upload quite regularly, so follow the blog and you won't miss them x

Enjoy!

What a Wonderful Weekend!

This weekend Jane & I hosted a midnight crop and an all day Saturday crop for the Enfield Girls!
It was lovely to meet them all & a really cool surprise to see Lily again after all these years!

A weekend full of laughter, fish & chips, pumpkin photos, cake & coffee, oh yeah and some scrapping was just what was needed! I even managed a few layouts and cards myself ;)
Here's hoping the grils all had a great time at Leeds Castle today, can't wait to see the pics!
