Free Vintage Images


I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. I'm doing some catch up all over the place. Yesterday I went through some kitchen cupboards and purged out a bunch of stuff. Plus I put new liners down. Things look so much fresher! I recently saw a post about Lent suggesting you take one garbage bag a day for 40 days and purge, purge, purge! I'm doing a slightly downsized version of that and getting some things straightened out around here! We've lived here since 1992...so, well, you know!!

Anyway, enough chit chat. Here's some free vintage images for you!
Here's the original image as well
In keeping with a Toy Theme, I have a Toy Motor!

I'm going to include the original as well, even though the writing is a bit skewed.
It's 3" high y'all! What a hoot!! Too cute!

That's what I have for you today. Enjoy!

Have a good weekend!


  1. Thank you so very much for the image of the doll.Just what i have been looking for! Hope you are well.Rosie.x

  2. One garbage bag a day for forty days, huh? Great idea. I go through purging episodes, but I tend to do it one day at a time, and four to eight garbage bags that day. Of course, it's really hard to purge with three little people following me around...everything is precious to them...every scrap of paper...every fuzz...every old broken toy...ugh!! I'm not sure who this forty day purge would be harder on...me or them!! LOL Once I start, though, I don't think I could stop at one bag.

    1. Lol...I've done it like that in the past as well. I love the idea though, and am going to try to get as much done as possible. Hopefully it'll free up some room for my crafts!

  3. So fun! Love the little motor! Thanks!

  4. Thanks for the fun vintage images. Good idea for Lent even if I only went through one drawer or cupboard a day and tossed out stuff. We haven't moved for over 30 years...so yeah, I know.

  5. This reminds me of my childhood days. Doesn't seem that long age. Thanks!


Thanks for the comments!
