Here's a very cute animal graphic of a lovely tabby cat with a pink bow. This is from my Victorian scrapbook, and it's still in wonderful condition. Usually Victorian cat's weren't portrayed as sweetly as this. They often look like wild animals, but this is quite the exception.

I love roses! This is an absolutely gorgeous red rose graphic that was printed on a canvas-like surface, which gives it an interesting texture, as if it were painted.

I love the dress and hat this woman is wearing! The cinched waist and all the ruffles are so cute! This image of women's vintage fashion comes from a vintage advertising card for Dean Brother's Coffee. I found it in a Victorian scrapbook. This image is so lovely, it could be used for so many projects. I hope you enjoy!

Here's a perfectly distressed, vintage book cover. I love old book cover images! Especially if they're distressed. And, the image of a cupid smelling a flower is so cute. This vintage book cover would make a lovely gift tag or a digital scrapbooking element.

This page from a vintage stain glass catalog makes a perfect digital collage sheet. It's also known as 'Art Glass', and for good reason; it's absolutely beautiful! This stain glass design is stunning, and I'd love it if my house was decorated with it. I hope you enjoy this stain glass clip art.

This is a lovely piece of religious clip art. This is a beautiful Victorian die cut decorated with angels and biblical scripture. The two little angels kissing on the very bottom of the image are especially adorable.

This is a scan from an old Victorian book showing examples of a handwritten alphabet. This would make an interesting background for any project. I love using handwritten clip art as backgrounds.

I love stain glass windows! They're beautiful! This is a pretty stain glass graphic from an antique catalog I found long ago. I actually use these in my miniature dollhouse projects. They're perfect!

This is a lovely piece of baby clip art taken from a vintage baby book that could be used for either a baby girl or boy. Despite the pink background, the pink and blue flowers, as well as the pink and blue ribbon, make this a versatile image for any baby themed project you have in mind.

I've never been on a cruise, and I'd love to do that one day. I always hear how much fun it is to vacation on a big ship from friends who've done it. Maybe some day I will. Today's post of ship clip art makes me wish for the time and money to take a nice, long cruise to a tropical destination.

This is a sweet image. I can remember doing the same thing as a child with our family pet cats. They were such great listeners. Well, as long as I continued to stroke their backs and show they lots of attention. This cute, black and white illustration is from a Victorian storybook.
