Saturday Image Bonus 196

It has been a crazy holiday season and I have not had a chance to post lately.  I am still looking for an editing software and the thought of posting without repairing the images has discourage me.  Today I am posting some pages from a December 1911 McCall's magazine.  It has some great ads and some wonderful sketches of dresses.  The cover art is a beautiful wreath with a girl.

I got a new scanner this week and my beloved old software program will not work with it.  I am trying to find the right new software for scanning and repairing images.  I also want to use it to make my digital stamps.  If any of you have any suggestions on software to use on a MAC that doesn't cost too much I would appreciate it.  In the meantime, please bear with me.  I am not able to repair these images much as I like.  Below are Christmas postcards from the early 1900's.

Today I have some Christmas postcards I found at the flea market this summer.  They have postmarks from 1907 to 1911.  I love to hunt for interesting cards at the market.  Unfortunately the flea market closed for the winter last week.  Luck for all of you I still have lots of treasures to post.

This week is Thanksgiving in the USA.  Yesterday my daughter and I joined a group of my coworkers to pack up 150 turkey dinners for families who otherwise would not be able to have a Thanksgiving dinner.  In less than an hour my coworkers and I had all the meals packed and on trucks.  We had so much fun and we were able to help people too.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving I challege of of you to do something this week to help someone else.  Though this year has been a challenging one for my family I am always thankful for all the good things that come my way.

The images I am posting today are from a large sized french children's book from the 1920's called Pierrette.  The artist is Zou Zou?  I can't read the writing.   I have included part of the cover but I can not fit even half the book in the scanner.  Anyway the pictures are adorable.  I love the clothing and the hairstyles.

This week's images are from a french magazine called L'Arte et la Mode dated December 1925.   The first image is the cover.  Unfortunately the pages are quite large and I could not scan the whole cover.

I hope you are enjoying these images from The Woman's Institute Home Sewing Tips Booklet.  One of the most interesting things about this booklet is the use of Post It like squares.  This booklet is from 1925.  The squares are similar in color to Post Its and the adhesive is on one edge.  I am not sure if it is removable.  I am afraid to damage the booklet.
