Happy Birthday Miss year of posting!

I can't believe it!
One year ago today I created this blog.
Thanks for keeping up with me.
Miss Phoebe wants to share some special favorites from her collection.
Right click and save to use as you wish!

A beautiful print of a mother and daughter.
I love these old lithographs.
The color and detail are just not something
that you find today...

I just love old typography.
So here is the cover from
Metcalf's Language Series:
Spelling and Language Book
Published in NY and Chicago

...and a page from within...

...along with the cover from
Hill's Manual of Social and Business Forms.
Published in Chicago in 1881.
From the days when penmanship
was not a dying art.
If you want 400 pages of typographical bliss,
find a copy on eBay.
You won't regret it!...

...and some pages from within...

I love vintage flapper photos.
They are easy to find now because dealers are currently finding them in
estate sales of folks that have recently passed away,
since this was the era in which many of them lived.
How about this little photo booth flapper child?...

...and of course, my current favorite,
little ballerinas...

Of course, I will always love old cabinet cards.
Especially, sisters such as these...

I hope you enjoy these! Have a wonderful day.
