Free Valentine Vintage Images!






In a previous post I mentioned that we are in the process of creating a new blog for the Silver Suitcase Society (http://www.wherewomencreate.com/society/society.php ). Part of the great thing about the new blog is that members will have access to some fabulous vintage images. We've been collecting images for years, and most (if not all!) are truly one-of-a-kind. Before the blog is up, I'm experimenting with images and the best way to get them to our members. So you get to be our "test" group! Here are some free Valentine images for you! Simply click on the image to make it larger, then right click or drag to your desktop (Mac). All I ask is if you would please leave me a comment telling me what images you'd like to see The Silver Suitcase offer. Oh, and if you have a specific project in mind for these Valentine images, I'd like to hear that also! Thanks so much:)

  1. How beautiful. So sweet of ya'll to share with your readers. I copied the first image. It would be cute as a tag on a little bag of homemade heart shaped cookies. Thank you.

  2. I like all of them but the framed image at the top is my favorite. Beyond that I love anything that has a Parisian feel.

  9. I love the first one. I'm thinking about gluing it in a fabric piece and antique the edges with ink and paint. Maybe adding a banner title over top. In the end it will be a cover to the front of a book. I would love to see some vintage pictures printed on tissue paper and made available for purchase. Just a thought... I ge them a lot! lol! Thanks- Cindy

  10. Hi, Paige! Love the free downloads! My favorites are always vintage Victorian images. I also love any documents with calligraphy or the beautiful ornamental writing of the 1800's and 1900's. Thanks so much! Ginger Gruetzner

  11. I love the images. Great idea. I need to join the Silver suitcase society. I love Jo Packham and her magazine "Where Women Create." She is so helpful to all of us inspiring women artists. I can wait for the new issue. Oh and thinks for following my blog.

  13. I love this idea! The images are beautiful. I make Valentines every year for my two daughters, both of whom are in their 30s now...old-style corny ones with paper doilies and all! These images will be perfect to incorporate.
    I love any and all vintage pictures, and use them in quilts and fiber postcards as well. I'd love to see more of old buildings and city-scapes. They conjure up all sorts of ideas for me.
    Thank you very much for sharing them.

  14. Love the images! I like anything to do with sewing, cross stitch, children,clocks, and the 50"s.

    Thank you so much for sharing this free download.
    I am still trying to figure out what to put on my Blog. Maybe in a week or two, I will have it figured out.
    BTW there is a Jane Austin exhibit at The Morgan Library and Museum in New York, NY until March 14th. Check out the Feb. issue of Victoria magazine.

  19. great images!
    I don't know yet where I will use them, but they will get used~
    As far as future images, I love vintage text, and in foreign languages. Especially French and Japanese.
    Thanks!

  20. So glad to have found your blog!! These images are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing them!! I'd love to see color images from vintage and retro school books and children's books. And thank you for teaching me something I didn't know: As a converted PC user, I had no idea that I could simply drag an image to my IMac's desktop! How easy is that? I've been control-clicking and saving. You have immensely simplified my life, and have given me one more reason to *love* my Mac! XOXO
