Flea Market Find

I went to the flea market this morning and found a cute book called The Children's 1927 Pitter Patter Book.  It is filled with line drawings of little children to post for you.

A Vintage Ad Page

This an ad page from the back of the Popular Mechanics from 1929.

Wouldn't this ad from a 1929 Popular Mechanics magazine be cool for a card for a recent graduate?    

I see this as a graduate card or father's day.  This image is from a book of knitted ties from the 20's.

Some Images for Father's Day

I will be posting over the next few weeks some images from a few Popular Mechanics magazines I picked up the Flea market today.  I love the early PM magazines because they have great ads and projects.  My favorite ads are the Harley Davidson ones.   So if you are a Harley fan you are in for a treat.  These are from November 1929.

A few days ago Edwina an exciting and talented paper artist sent me an email with this beautiful recipe card she made for her niece using one of the images from Digital Two for Tuesday.  I really liked her use of color and the whimsical additions of the milk and cookies.  I loved it so much I asked her if I could share it with you.  You can see this project and much more at Edwina's Creations.  Thank you for sharing Edwina.
Here is the original image

Digital Two for Tuesday 128

Both of these images are from vintage seed packages that I purchased on line a few years ago.  I posted two versions.  One more detailed than the other.

I need to work on my vegetable garden this week or we will not have fresh tomatoes this summer.

Baking Images

I love these cute little girl images from this 1920's Baker's Extract booklet.  They make me want to bake a cake.

Digital Two For Tuesday 127

I hit the mother load at the flea market and found 29 different vintage magazines.  This week I have two images from a pamphlet from the Baker Extract Company that I found at the flea market.  It looks like it is from the 1920's but there is no date.  I will be posting a bunch from this pamphlet this week so be sure to check back here and on my other blog Clearly Vintage.
