Vintage Thingee Thursday

I've been wanting to participate in this fun group for a long time - today seems to be the day.

Please stop over at Suzanne's blog - coloradolady.blogspot to find more people sharing their vintage treasures. If you have been reading my blog for a while - you know that I love vintage linens, vintage kitchen things, mostly vintage anything - so this is the perfect spot for me.

I have always loved vintage botanical prints, and I've been planning on buying some for a specific wall in our new house - and look what I found - FREE - a huge selection of Vintage Printables.

Everything from botanicals to animals to vintage clothing to medicine to mythology - oh you must go over and see it for yourselves.

Bird's nests were the first thing I copied to be printed . . .


And from the huge selection of trees, I picked this one and several others . . .




And the flowers - I must limit myself - oh heck, why limit - let's pick more and more and have a great time printing and framing these fabulous vintage botanicals.

Have fun - and enjoy your hours and hours spent looking through all the possibilities on this site - I think I'll go back and look for some fairies.

Cool site Jo. When I see stuff like this I think on how I can adapt it to applique LOL.

Yes, I love the vintage nests too...I decoupaged one onto a magazine rack in our camper a couple months ago...if you use any of the prints on there for a project, and then feature on your blog, they will add a link to their website to showcase your idea.

Love these. I can't pick a favorite. I tried as I sometimes like to include that in my comment. Couldn't work it out of me...

I love all the prints you've found. Can't wait to see them after you've framed them and hung up on your wall.

I have a book on birds which looks very similar to the art form in your blog.
I must look at it again. You just reminded me of it.
I am going over to the site and see what she has.
Your vintage days are wonderful.
