I bought a new book. It’s actually a very old book, published in 1886, but it’s new to me ~ and I love it! Flowers from Dell and Bower by Susie Barstow Skelding.
At $100 US + $13 for shipping (from abebooks.com), my copy was a bargain considering that a copy of this book recently sold for $301.01 on Ebay. 50 bids!
So far I’ve added two of the floral images from the book to my Etsy shop.
Images are linked to my Etsy shop.
Here is a lovely poem, Spring in The Lap of Winter, from the book, for you to download free.
When I received my copy of this book last week, tucked inside the front cover, with a copy of my invoice, was this beautiful old Easter card by S. Hildesheimer & Co. I love it and I thought you may as well.
I’ve done something a little different with the back of the Hildesheimer Easter card. I scanned it at 1200 dpi then resized a portion of it to a 12″ x 12″ digital page at 300 dpi. I thought those of you who design digital scrapbook kits may have use for something like this in your designs.

I can only include one image from this blog post as a featured image for the gallery section on my blog so you won’t see two of the these free images listed in the gallery.
