Happy Mothers Day Pictures
One of my favorite all time Mother’s Day Images! This is a lovely, full color, Vintage Graphic of a Mother with her daughter and the family Cat! The Woman is Knitting something, with her little basket of yarn in her lap. A sweet sentimental scene with such tenderness!
This is an Antique Photo Postcard showing a Mother with her child. This is a tinted card… I love the soft colors on this card!
This is a lovely old Stock Photo of a what looks to be a Mother and Child, or it could be 2 Sisters. Such a pretty family photo that really shows the pure love that they have for each other. Such a tender smile on both of the them.
Mother’s Day Silhouette Images
This Silhouette shows a sweet picture of a loving Mother and Child, circa 1940’s. So charming and would be lovely on a Handmade project for Mom on her special occasion!
This is a darling Silhouette Image from an 1870’s book in my collection! This picture shows a Mother and Daughter holding hands, they appear to be Dancing. Such a charming Graphic!
This black and white illustration shows a lovely Silhouette of a Mother and her Two Children, all framed up with a floral Heart. Even in though it’s a silhouette you can see the affection that she has for her children, just by her pose.
Mother’s Day Grandma Clipart
The Silhouette shows a picture of a Woman in a Rocking Chair, with a Cat at her feet. She’s peering out of a window with the word “Mother” at the top of it. This one was scanned from a recent addition to my collection, an old Circa 1941 Printer’s Catalog. This one would make a great card for a Grandmother, or mature Mom, on Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day Clipart
This black and white childhood illustration shows a darling little Girl, she almost looks Doll like to me. The Girl is holding a bouquet of flowers with a tag that says “Mother” attached.
This black and white illustration shows a lovely Bird with the greeting “Blessings on You Mother” written on it. This one is also circa 1941. Charming!
Retro Happy Mothers Day Images
This is a Black and White image of a Classic 1940’s Housewife! This one shows a young Mom, who appears to be Baking or Cooking. She’s got her recipe book in hand, her mixing bowl and a hand mixer. Cute!
This is a cute Retro Thinker Mom Image! This Vintage Image was scanned from a 1940′s Printer’s book. This lady has a classic 1940’s Hairstyle, she’s wearing a white Apron and she has her hand on her chin as if she is pondering something. So fun! I wonder what she’s thinking about?
Mother’s Day Illustrations
This is a Cute Vintage Mother with Daughters Image! Shown above is a young Mother with her two Darling Children. The girls are dressed in matching Dresses with Blue Sashes! They are all out for a walk on a beautiful day. This illustration was done by one of my favorite Artists, Kate Greenaway.

Here is the latest addition to this collection. In this charming picture we see a young woman and her little girl, dressed in the Regency style clothing that is so typical in Kate Greenaway’s illustrations. According to the book that I scanned this from, this one is called “My little girlie”.

This is a very sweet Happy Mother’s Day Picture by Jessie Wilcox Smith. I have had a number of her framed prints over the years, I sold them in my Antiques booth. They are always so charming! This one shows a young Mom putting socks on her little girl. The child does not look too enthusiastic about starting her day!
Shown above is a young Mother rocking her Sweet Baby who’s in a Cradle. The woman is sewing, perhaps she’s making some clothes, or a blanket, for her baby. I love the soft pastel colors in this image!

This is a charming Berry Picking Picture! Shown here is an old Advertising Trade Card, featuring a young woman and a little boy, in a pastoral setting.

In this sweet postcard, a Victorian Mother carries her Daughter in her arms as she walks through the garden. The woman wears a lovely yellow flowing gown and the daughter, in a pink dress with pinafore and tiny pink shoes, hugs her neck. This young mother looks like she has a heart of purest gold and a dress to match! The Happy Mother’s Day Wishes are “A token of Regard” is surrounded by pink ribbons. Lovely!
This gorgeous Image is not necessarily just for Mother’s Day, but I think any Mom would love to get a card as beautiful as this one on her important day! It’s a perfect Cabbage Rose, with the word Greeting on it. You can add your Mother’s name to it and use as a lovely Card or Gift Tag!

What a wonderful collection of awesome Mother’s Day graphics! I adore the real photos of the Moms and their daughters or sister even. When they are muted like this, it’s even more special! They are gorgeous! I love the dancing Mom and child. I love everything about the photo – that girl looks like such a sweetie pie! All of the others are very nice as well. They all make for a gorgeous collage for Mother’s Day.
