I have always had a fascination with vintage photos and papers. They take me to a time before I was born, and I love to imagine what life was like back then!
Recently I purchased a copy of the New York Times from November, 1922. I had thought I might be able to use it in crafting somehow, but the paper turned out to be too brittle. That's when I had my brainstorm: I could scan the image into my computer, and then I could print the image as often as I wanted, only on stronger paper. This way I could use the image in several crafts, not just one!
Today I found another such treasure: a periodical from May, 1929. I have scanned the cover of it for similar use. I am excited about using these images in junk journals, but I also just realized that the date of this one does not put it in the public domain yet, so I am not able to share it. I have deleted the file. Sorry for that confusion, but I need to be careful.
I hope you enjoy them. Please feel free to share this blog post with your friends and share the fun!

UPDATE: I had to delete the Grit paper due to it not being in public domain yet.
