This beautiful, serene image of a pond with lovely flowers is from a vintage poetry book. I've been posting several images from this same book, and the Forget-Me-Not Flowers have all been spectacular; however, I'm not quite sure that these flowers grow in ponds. Regardless, this is still a gorgeous flower graphic.
Wouldn't this image make a wonderful business card, place setting card, or gift tag?! This pretty Victorian Calling Card lends itself to so many possibilities. It's makes a great label for almost any project! The yellow and purple butterfly and wild flowers are so beautiful too! Enjoy!

Even though it's a little worse for wear, this little, antique Victorian Valentine scrap card is lovely and so pretty. It wasn't so easy to scan into my computer because these Valentine scraps are multi-layered, usually created with four or five layers of paper. And, this creates an absolutely gorgeous frame! In the center of these beautiful scraps is another image of some sort; however, this tattered, distressed scrap lost it's image long, long ago. I've given you both the .jpg and .png files of this image. I hope you enjoy!
This is the last animal chromolithograph illustration I have from an antique 1885 natural history book. The Victorians took a true interest in natural history, but their representations and illustrations of animals verged on the wild and fantastic some of the time. No doubt a Rhinoceros can be dangerous; however, this charging Rhino seems a bit more menacing than it would naturally as it bares its teeth. Enjoy!

I love the elegance and simplicity of Edwardian Fashion, especially the loose hairstyles. This 1915 collar fashion is so pretty and frilly with the lace, and the creme colors are so lovely. I've given you both the .jpg and .png files of this fashion image. Enjoy!
Aren't these lovely?! This is an antique, Victorian scrap of dyed Ostrich Feathers. I love the different colors, and they look so luxuriously soft too. These would be wonderful in a fashion-themed project. I've given you both the .jpg and .png files of this feather image. I hope you enjoy!

I'm sure many parents out there would definitely appreciate if a young man would come calling for their daughters in this fashion today. Back in 1906 this was the expected etiquette when calling on a young woman. I hope you enjoy!
This is a vintage graphic of an herb, Santal Wood, from an old medical health book. With a woodsy scent, this herb is often used to make perfumes and used as a scent in candles. I've given you both the .jpg and .png files of this image. I hope you enjoy!

This is a beautiful antique, 1885 illustration of Red Deer. I love how the stately male, the female, and the baby of this deer are shown, even though the doe is mostly hidden behind the male. The color are deep and rich, and this would look amazing framed in dark wood. I posted another animal illustration of tigers from the same natural history book here. Enjoy!
This is the same image I posted yesterday of a yellow rose; however, I've changed the color of the rose, making it an orange rose. As I was playing with the image in my photo editing software, I just fell in love with this color! The Forget-Me-Not Flowers still remain purple-blue, which I think is wonderful. So, I hope you enjoy this version of the same image!

I just love yellow and purple together. This antique Victorian scrap of a big yellow rose and purple Forget-Me-Not Flowers is simply gorgeous. Each makes the other pop! I hope you enjoy!
I love making these vintage postcard backs digital collage sheets. The distressed appearance, the handwriting, and the postmark graphics are wonderful elements for use in any project. I hope you enjoy!

Not only do Forget-Me-Not Flower illustrations feature prominently in vintage and antique wedding books, but they also can be found abundantly in vintage and antique baby books. This vintage, 1915 baby book has lots of Forget-Me-Not Flower graphics, and they are so pretty on this page recording a baby's first prayer. How cute is the kneeling little baby in the second image?! I hope you enjoy!
Forget-Me-Not Flower illustrations are often found in vintage and antique wedding books, from which this pretty flower graphic came. I love this shade of blue! I hope you enjoy!

This is a beautiful, 1885 tiger illustration from a Victorian natural history book. The colors are deep and rich, and this image would look wonderful in a dark wood frame. I hope you enjoy!
Doesn't she look regal? The fancy, ornate lace trim on her sleeves and collar of her purple dress is amazing! All she needs is a crown to complete her outfit. This is a pretty Victorian scrap of a woman dressed very regally from my 1879 scrapbook. Enjoy!

This is a cute little Victorian scrap, or die cut, of an antique sailing ship. I love the detail of these scraps. And, precisely because they're so detailed, is why they are so often a little worse for wear. However, I love the distressed look. The rigging's a little tattered, but it's still a wonderful ship image. I've given you both the .jpg and .png files of this image. I've posted another ship image here. Enjoy!
Isn't this pretty! This vintage frame clip art is from a wedding book. This beautiful, printable frame is of green, hanging Amaranthus flowers. In the first version, I've left the bell, so you could use the image in a wedding project. And, I've taken out the bell image in the second version so you could use the frame for any project you want. I hope you enjoy!

This is a pretty little flower illustration of a 5-petal, pink, tree flower. It's from a vintage poetry book. I love it! It's so detailed and lovely. I know you'll enjoy it!
I love these gorgeous animal prints from a Victorian, 1885 natural history book. This animal illustration is of Harvest Mice. Not only are the colors wonderful, but the seven little mice are all in different poses and presented in many angles. And, one is even drawn in the nest! How cute. The colors are splendid and rich. This would look so beautiful framed. I've posted another lovely print here. I hope you enjoy!

This is a beautiful Victorian Calling Card from my 1879 scrapbook. These little cards are so pretty, and I especially like the ones with birds and flowers. They make for wonderful labels, which is why I've given you this version without the words. Usually, these cards will have someone's name and a short verse printed on them. What a cute business card this would make! Enjoy!

This is a vintage book cover of a book of poetry with a lovely Forget-Me-Not Flower graphic. I've given you the original image and one without the words. The second version can be used as a frame or label. And, I love the texture of the book cover. It give it a rustic or distressed look. I hope you enjoy!

Wow! When I received this stunningly beautiful digital greeting card in my email from the lovely and talented, Kim, I was blown away. I still am! Isn't she creative?! She's taken the wonderful distressed pink rose graphic I posted here and used it as the centerpiece of this sweet card. What an awesome project she's created with so many gorgeous elements. Enjoy!
Oh, no! Here's a couple of naughty kittens poking around in the kitchen. This is an antique Victorian scrap of two kittens in a kitchen, climbing on top of pots. How cute is this?! I hope you enjoy!

This is a beautiful graphic of a bunch of Forget-Me-Not flowers from the front cover of a vintage wedding book. I love the lilac and sage green of this image. Actually, these would make gorgeous colors for a wedding. I've given you versions of this image, the original and one without the title. I hope you enjoy!
This is another cute vintage baby graphic from a 1915 baby book. The pansy flower frame around the baby is so pretty! Enjoy!

This is a rather distressed pink rose graphic from a vintage postcard. But, I love the distressed look! Actually, it took me a while to fix up this image. The postcard had lots of rips and tears, and the big rose image was heavily damaged. I think it's still a lovely image and cleaned really nicely. I hope you enjoy!
Aren't these Forget-Me-Not Flowers pretty?! This is an antique Victorian Scrap, known as a hand whimsy. I love these little images, and I post them quite often here on Antique Images. They can be used for so many projects. I hope you enjoy!

This Happy New Year clip art is from a vintage postcard. I love the baby playing the piano! Music is a great way to celebrate the new year. I don't often find these New Year Greeting postcards in antique shops, so it was a real treat finding this one. Enjoy!
