I got these first two images from a children's cookbook of my sister-in-law's.  Old cookbooks are great places to find lots of fun images for your scrapbooks and altered art projects.

I love these old colorized images.

Here is an old needle case.

This girl is from a vintage sewing pattern from the 1960s.  You can even see the stamp on her forehead from the fabric store from which it was purchased.

Another colorized one.

I absolutely love this one of the girl and her doll.

I got this one at a yard sale.  The gentleman who was selling them had quite a few of these old vintage advertisements.  They are printed on heavy cardboard. 

I got this old vintage photograph at a yard sale as well.  I love to image what their story might be.  I think the father is away fighting a war and the mother is left behind to care for the children.

This is another one of those advertisement cards that I bought.

Most of these images are from my husband's family.  I have many more of these to post.  My in-laws gave me bags full of photos to scan.

This is my husband's grandmother and her brother.

This is an old family photo, as are all of those above.  This one was one of those tin type photos.  Very interesting.

A page from a 1940 college yearbook.

This is a very old postcard.  Very thick and colorful.

The photos below are from a 1960s California textbook.

Vintage Ballet Class.

They used to call them stewardesses rather than flight attendants.

Some more vintage advertisements.

I have more of these to scan and add eventually as well.

A vintage woman.
