Vintage Image Freebies

I was just browsing through my collection of vintage images this morning and thought I would share a few here on my blog. Feel free to use these images in your art, but please do not reproduce them in the form of collage sheets or CDs for resale.

In honor of the 4th of July I dug one of the most patriotic vintage images in my collection. I know I’m a couple days late, but technically it is still “Fourth of July weekend.” What could be more patriotic than a skinny old man and a heavy old woman on a boat with a flag?

This is an image I recently acquired at a flea market…it’s in pretty rough shape, but it is strangely appealing. I call it “Baby with a pin in her head.”

Oh, I just love this one. Their faces are stern, but he is holding onto her arm so tightly that they must still be deeply in love after all these years.

“The Cross-eyed Sister” is also one of my favorite acquisitions from an e-bay lot.

You just never know what you’ll get when you buy large e-bay lots. I think I am so drawn to those lots because they are so fun to look through when you get them – it’s kind of like a treasure hunt. I could browse through vintage images for hours, making up short stories to go along with each image. I like snapshots the best – just people experiencing life at a particular moment in time.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!
