Click on images to enlarge

Once again, it’s Thursday so that means it’s request day here at TGF!
Here’s what I found for you this week:

Kim C was looking for an Edgar Allen Poe image. The one you see above has a title for The Raven, included with it.

Next up with have an old photo of a woman with a Maltese dog, as requested by Babi.

requested a black and white Cat image. This one comes from an Antique Natural History book.

Cyndy was hoping for a black and white drawing of a Book, this one was an advertisement for a publisher.

Ekorn was wishing for the Constellation Orion, this image is from the 1880’s.

And lastly Junque Magnet has been searching for a Magnet image.

Well, that’s all for this week. Do you have a request for an image? If so please leave it here in the comments section of my Request Day post, and then check back on Thursday to see if I found your requested image (Sorry but I can’t fill every request, I usually pick a few each week). Each week I go back and check under my Thursday posts to find what your looking for, it’s so much easier for me that way. I’m afraid I’m a very disorganized Fairy, so please, please please Do Not email requests to me, I most likely will loose it if you do. So sorry but I’m a complete mess when it comes to email! I’m afraid they’re just aren’t enough hours in the day to answer them all, and then I feel horribly guilty.

P.S. Don’t forget to use the search box here on my blog, you might find that the image you want is already here!


  1. Oh my goodness you are so kind and helpful!!! A million thanks for your generosity.

  2. oh, thank you, Karen. I’ve got an idea for a mini book and i really needed EDGAR. you’re my hero

  3. Please post more of the constellations! Those are beautiful.

  4. What a sweetie you are!!!

  5. I love all of the graphics that you find for us. I’m terrible about posting though. Thank you for searching them out. I’ve been looking for an old photo of a VERY happy little girl. Not a baby. A small child. Maybe with her hands in thrown up in the air. Sort of a “TA DAH!” moment if you get my drift.

    Thanks! – Kathy

  6. I’m so glad you all like the images!!!

    Meaghan, I do have more of these!

    Kathy, I’ll have to think about that one, it sounds like it would a fun image if I can find something like that!

  7. Karen is it possible you have a picture of a House being Haunted…. have searched through your archive but cannot find one. So please may I put a request in for one. Thank you for all your images they are terrific.

  8. Thanks once again for your generosity! I was thinking of you today…getting some photos together for a scrapbook page of antique shopping and I’m sure there will be some lovely vintage image I can use for my page! Thanks! :)

  9. WONDERFUL! LOVE LOVE LOVE the EA Poe image! (the others as well, but – Edgar, o Edgar!)
    Thank you so much

  10. Hi Netty,
    Several people have used this one as a Haunted House it’s not really supposed to be haunted, but it does have that look to it!

    Hi Kathy,
    That sounds like a fun theme for a page, I’m sure it will be really cute! I’ve got a couple of Dress forms on here that might be good for that theme.

  11. Loving the Poe image. I am not into the overtly scary Halloween stuff. This is scary, but in a nice academic way. Thanks for that.

  12. Ciao Karen,
    thank you very much for the maltese image.
    You are beautiful!
    A kiss,Babi

    I was curious about any Knights, Kings, Queens, or Castles? I’m decorating my sons nursery medieval theme and having a hard time finding anything that isn’t really cartoon-like.


  19. You’re awesome. Just awesome. I’ve been looking for WWII Victory Garden posters. Any chance of getting some of those on your blog?
