Beautiful Cozy English Country Cottages and Gardens Free Images for your ATC,Scrap booking and creating

Are you all snug in your own cottage? I just need some hot tea and my cozy socks on and I will be comfy. It is cool and has rained. No air conditioner for awhile now. Wondering if the sun will be out today. Both my kitties have found a warm spot and do not want to get out of bed.
First I Love your comments thank you, thank you.This blogging continues to be so fun. 
A little bird told me that Cathie Holden from "Just Something I Made " payed a visit to The Legacy!!! If I had been there I would have embarrassed myself and made such a fuss. After all She is a very special blogger indeed. Today I have cozy cottages for you. All the pictures of English cottages I have at the moment. So make good use of them until more turn up.
I am happy now, today and am gratefully so. Hope you are too.
Much love as always, Louise

Paintings of Adorable Little Girls. Pretty White Dresses from 1800's to early 1900's.

Oh, you have all been so nice! Thank you for your kind comments. They really put a smile on my face and brighten my day.
 Welcome to all my new followers. If you use anything from Bumble Buttons I would love to see it.
How about some little girls in their fancy white dresses?
 A selection of beautiful paintings for you to enjoy. Two look to be from the Edwardian era and one with the shell mid 1800's or Victorian.
This old book cover is from a Tuck's book circa 1880-90's.
It's all about the white dresses.
Just a simple pretty portrait.
A favorite of mine.
A lovely mother and her little girl having a sweet moment together. The little girl is listening so intently. Maybe the woman is a governess.
Enjoy the pics. Much love to you all, Louise

Hi ! Today I have some formal and classical images. All are from old theater programs. Late 1890's to early 1920's.The crown one is French and perfect for labels. I can just see it on old bottles. Also I know that crowns are popular.
I separated out the different elements from an old title page. How fun to use in scrap booking, collage and as labels.

Just a quick post See you tomorrow, Louise

Antique Postcards 1800's Child in a Shell and Sweet Little Birds

   Also after pondering what to do with my bathroom for some time I feel inspired!!! Now I know what I want to do after seeing all the white and silver gray on Tineskcreatvehjorne. Silver gray walls, white frames, silver vases with white flowers, spray paint some metal thingy's silver and make a beautiful lace duvet into a shower curtain. Tending to be slow at these things I'll post how it turns out(probably in a few years!!)
Hope you enjoy and create with the sweet pictures. 
Much love to you all, Louise
