Illustrated Border: Red Poppies in Urn Art Nouveau Border


***This was originally posted over at the main Field & Garden site but I decided to move it to Vintage Field & Garden since it fits with the vintage theme better.***

A blank page with a border of red poppies in a red decorative planter. I extracted and digitally altered the original illustration from an 1883 book that showed a "dustman" making his rounds at night, of all things! :) You can use this page as a greeting card, for an announcement or any other creative work. To download a 4" x 5" @ 300ppi image, just click on the picture above to open it up. Then, right-click to save the picture to a destination to your computer.

Ready-made Card: Ivy Friendship Vintage Postcard


This is a vintage postcard postmarked June 13, 1910. It shows a grouping of ivy leaves, and the greeting reads: Like to the ivy true friends indeed, Cling closest in the time of need. This card is still so bright and colorful even though it is more than 100 years old, and echoes a timeless sentiment! I thought this would be great to send to a friend or loved one, especially if they are going through a difficult time right now.

Vintage Illustration: Young Sweethearts 1


This was originally an unmarked postcard entitled "Sweethearts." It features a young lady in a white frilly dress with a pink sash around her waist and a bow round her arm and in her hair. She is holding a posy of white flowers up to her nose and blushing prettily. A curly-headed young gentleman in a jaunty red hat and spiffy red-striped shirt is standing next to her, holding another posy in one hand and his fishing pole in another.
