Vintage Images

I have found a truly fantastic site! If you enjoy crafting with vintage photographs, papers, labels etc (ephemera) then you will be in your element here. I stumbled upon this site whilst looking for vintage fashion photographs, mainly for inspiration and also to consider using a nice black and white pic for business cards. Whilst googling around I found that most sites charge for their "photo stock". At Vintage resources there are many pictures that are free to use but only for personal artwork. For a small donation there are hundreds more pictures available in sets. For the time being I found great inspiration flicking through the images that were contributed by the sites visitors. So if you have any old photographs lurking in your attic why not share them with the rest of the world too? Below are a few of my favourites...... Whilst compliling this post I found a link (not sure how??) to what can only be described as a "sister site" maybe. Here you will find lists of artists and members of the site that have used its contents for their love of vintage. It really is jam packed with beautiful images from the past and certainly shows that possibly time can really stand still (even if it is only whilst I take a lunch break!).... Enjoy
