This adorable image comes from an 1870′s Children’s School book! I just thought these little Birds, formed into a Tree shape, were so much fun!!! Wouldn’t these make a darling Christmas Card?!! I’ve made a few options, including red and green.

  35. Another “thumbs up” vote. I enjoy all your images (and thank you wholeheartedly for finding them and sharing them with us), but this one really jumped out at me.

  36. I love these! I saw this image on Pinterest and was hoping that it was large and framable.

  37. So sweet! Thank you for sharing!

  38. I don’t know why, but I’m almost in tears over finding these images (happy tears!). I clicked on a pin, which led me to a post with several graphics on it. I had to scroll down to find the one I was looking for (which wasn’t this one, btw), and saw this one. My heart did a little flip! I wanted to make sure I could download it (legally and ethically), so I started clicking until I finally landed at the original spot! And then find out that it’s vintage AND free? Be still my heart… ;) Thank you so much!

  39. Thank you soo much for these images! They are soo cute! I was wondering if you could make one in blue and one in brown? Thanks soo much!

  41. These are awesome. Thanks so much.

  42. I’m sure the book told of how it is a counting aid, from one to ten. Am planning on printing this as a coloring page for my grandbabies when they are old enough :~D Thanks! A stunning image.
