A few more from the Delineator

Here are a few more of these great ads from the 1895 Delineator.  These magazines are a treasure.  I have been posting digital stamps of these images on Digital Two for Tuesday.

Saturday Image Bonus 202

All of these images are from the ad pages from the 1895 Delineator magazine I have been posting from lately.  There are literally hundreds of amazing images in this one magazine alone.  This sort of illustration is a lost art.

Check out my boards on Pinterest . I am addicted.  You gals were right.  I just can't stop pinning.  I have filled my boards with things I love plus lots of favorites from my blogs.

Saturday Image Bonus 200

I can't believe that I am up to 200 Saturday Image posts.  When I started posting vintage images on my blog Paper Flowers in 2007 I never thought it would be so popular.  So popular that I started this blog Clearly Vintage to post my vintage image collection and then of course it morphed into Digital Two for Tuesday.  Yesterday with the help of some of my fellow bloggers I signed up for Pinterest a inboard site and I have started to post already.  Boy this internet stuff is addictive.  It could be a full time job.

I have also been toying with the idea of creating an e book with Apple Ibooks Author using vintage images.  It would be similar to the guest designer concept but in ebook form with tutorials and step by step instructions.  I would need a group of designers who are serious about developing the book.  I am not sure whether to make it a free download or a small fee.  Please let me know what you think and if you are interest in participating let me know in the comments.

Todays images are all from vintage Valentines.  Hopefully I have not posted these before.  Melissa had asked me to try to make digital stamps out of a few of these but I can't seem to get them to work.  There are just to many details.

I have discovered a great new virtual pinboard site called Pinterest.  What is really exciting about Pinterest is you can browse pinboards made by other people.  It is very popular with brides and moms to be.

Here are my pin boards
