Free Back to School Clip Art from 19th and early 20th Century Paintings, Illustrations 2 John George Brown Paintings
Is it to late for a back to school theme? The clip board and pads of writing paper are from a very old catalog.When I found them I knew they would make excellent clip art. If anything else they are just fun to share. Love the red tape one. I feel in love with the little girl painting. Hopefully a search for more illustrations by the artist goes well.The signature is hard to read so if any one has any information about the artist please let me know.
I want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments. They inspire me.
The Legacy is a small, but very full thrift store. Everything has been donated and the proceeds go to the Sebastopol Senior Center. The most wonderful thing is what they specialize in; sewing, quilting, fabric, crafty stuff, yarn, books, scrapbooking, stamping, embroidery, ribbon and trim etc. It’s like a Jo-Ann’s or Michaels’ thrift store. They also have vintage lace and linens. This little shop has been my soft place to fall. It’s magical. Now onto the buttons… My last name, Bouton, is French for button. Ironically I am now in charge of the button donations at the Legacy and I LOVE it. Wanting to make a pretty button card to sew the loose buttons on led me to the discovery of clip art. Luckily I found "JustSomethingIMade" and "the Graphics Fairy". Kindred spirits! Then I realized I had 1000’s of similar images, dating to the 1700’s. Inspired, I created a blog to share all this ephemera with you creative ones. All because of buttons! And that is how Bumble Button came to exist.
