free clip art and images 1920 1930 aprons clothing dollhouse children's book illustrations

Hi everyone! Welcome to all you new visitors as well as my wonderful followers.Some fun period clothing and illustrations. They are great references for 1920-1930 styles and the colors of fabrics. The dollhouse is fun and bright. I would have spent lots of time looking at the picture to see what was in each room.



This is from an old sewing booklet. For some reason my scanner would just not pick up the colors very well.



So glad you stopped by.Enjoy creating your ATC, scrap booking collage and other crafts. The images, as always, are free for your use. Much love to you,Louise
