What is Brag Monday?
Brag Monday was a weekly Linky Party where TGF readers linked up their projects created with TGF images. I’m afraid we stopped doing that party a couple of years ago, but you can still see the old posts to get inspiration for your projects.
I’d like you to find an image for me, do you take requests?
I’m sorry I’m no longer doing requests, I loved doing them while I could, but they are extremely time consuming so I had to stop.
I’d like to purchase some larger file sizes of images that you have on your site is that possible?
At this point in time, I’m not set up to do this. It can be very time consuming going through my stacks and stacks of paper to locate an image that I have previously scanned.

I have some old Postcards (or other assorted graphics) that I would like to share with you, can I email some scans to you?
I have to say, I’m super picky about what I share on my blog. I always try to find things that are unusual, exceptionally interesting to look at, and great quality. When I’m out and about searching for treasures, I reject loads of things that may be old, but that are more commonly found. I feel badly when people are kind enough to send me things, but that I feel aren’t quite interesting enough for my readers tastes, or the scan is poor quality, or perhaps I already have too many of that type etc.
Having said that if you have found something particularly interesting that you would like to share, you can submit it via my submission page. I’m not able to personally answer all of the submissions that I get, but I will give you credit if I use your image.
Here are a few guidelines:
- I can only accept scans of images that you physically own the originals of. Please do not send me downloads that you purchased off of Etsy or found on Google etc.
- Scans must be 300 dpi
- The items that you scan must date prior to 1923 if created in the U.S., for all other countries prior to 1900 is preferable.
