Victorian Valentine's Clipart Images


This Victorian Advertisement for The Ladies' Home Journal from 1891 is one of my most favorite finds this year! I scanned it from an 1891 newspaper. (I don't recall now which one.. I have dozens..)


I just had to pull this lovely lady out of the ad for you.. she is gorgeous! Perfect for Valentine's art projects or perhaps for wedding pieces now that the season of weddings is almost upon us!

Please remember to play nice.. no adding these images to CD's for resale or selling them the way they are. I work hard to provide them free for you and would like them to remain free for others as well. Feel free to use them in your art and craft and sell your wares!

This is too Awesome...and the Sentiment is typical from way back when...we have all heard of Eleanor Roosevelt and Betsy Ross..but many women who were part of history were always in the shadows...
