September Handmades on TDIPT Mercantile


Tonight is my monthly update on the Mercantile, and I have two handmades offered for sale.

pumpkin_kidsA new Cupboard piece, made with an illustration from a vintage school book.  I love this style of illustration, and those outfits are so typical for the first decade of the 1900’s.



My fascination for words and letters pops up again here, with a nice display set for Fall, including a neat vintage pumpkin graphic, based on an old seed packet.


The Dog and I invite you to drop by my page on TDIPT Mercantile.  While you’re there, be sure to check out all the other amazing artwork that’s available within the group.

A Little Witchy Fun

I know I keep saying I will move on from Halloween designs, but I've also explained that this is my favorite Holiday of all, and things just keep popping into my brain. 
 I mean, are they cute or what?  There are 6 designs with Little Winged Witches, and two backgrounds, so you can make you own special tags.
They come as a Digital Download, available in my Etsy Shop.

The Dog and I have decided that you really need them!  LOL!
Happy week everyone!

Free is Good!

Over the last few years, I have accumulated a lot of wonderful free stuff from the web.  Images, tutorials, entertainment, friendships, it’s all there just waiting for me, because some kind and thoughtful person took the time to offer it.  Today, I want to give back, just a little, sort of a tiny piece of pay it forward.

elephant_tricycle I often run into really wonderful images that don’t have anything to do with the project I am supposed to be working on.  These are perfect to share with all of you.  Look at the expression on the  faces, of the dog and the children!  I love the elephant riding a tricycle and waving a flag!  And the little elephant is smiling.  Click on the image and save to your computer.


It really was a different world when “Little Girls from 6 to 12” dressed like this.  Wonderful illustration, even if it is an ad.  Wouldn’t they make great card or tags?  Click on the image  and save to your computer.

bonnetJust too precious.  Click on the image and save.

foot_muffFinally,, a foot muff – you knew that, right?  Remember the part about these being the images that didn’t fit?  A beautiful etching any way, and good for a chuckle.  Come to think of it, I could have used one of these last winter, especially when the power went off.

Enjoy the images, and make something wonderful.  Many thanks for visiting, from the Dog and Me.

Just a Bit More Spookiness

I can’t seem to tear myself away from all the great creepy, spooky stuff yet, so I have another new set of Images available in my Etsy Shop, Digital Antiques.

g_a11webThis time, a set of 12 Gothic Arch Backgrounds.  It’s a set of 12 different designs, and each one measures 2.5” x 4.5”.  Just a bit spooky, they remind me a bit of fairy tales, and I’ve included a few damsels in the mix as well.

Gothic_Arches1web  Gothic_Archesweb2 These should be fun for all kinds of art projects, including collage and altered art, or could be used as is for note cards or tags.They’re based on the kind of antique engravings that speak to my heart, and I hope you’ll like them too.  You can pick up a set here.

Happy crafting from the Dog and me.
