Free Vintage Postcards, Images,-tips for searching

In my personal picture file I save things according to seasons or holidays. Today I am sharing some of my favorite things I have found over the last couple of years blogging and wanted to share them..also below some great tips for finding things you are interested in.  Tips that I have found work for me over the years.

Take a look at this site, you will just love this. There are all kinds of free vintage postcards for Holidays, and everyday!http://vintageholidaycrafts.com/vintage-halloween-women/ 

Hover your mouse over the image, right click which will open a new window, then save to your computer(go up to file in your tool bar and scroll down to save or save as), preferably in a picture file. I found that if I saved pictures in other places they would often come up as a code instead of a picture.
 Then go back and open your picture file and click on the image...print...I find that printing on cardstock works well for a vintage looking image. 

If you want to search for something and see it before you click and go to the website...go to Images in your web browser (Bing or Google, etc.)  and then type in what you want to search for...

For example...I type in 'Vintage Images, Pumpkin'...or 'Vintage Images, free, Halloween',
'Free Cross Stitch Pattern, Pumpkin'....
'Free Quilt Pattern, Fall'...
'Free Images, Crow'
Also for free French Cross Stitch Patterns....'Grille Gratuite Petit Le Croix'.
It is fun and you can spend hours with a hot apple cider, in your jammies...looking at things that interest you.
French Cross Stitch sites zing my bell because their country is much more into stitching and handwork than our country is...so it is amazing to look at their blogs and see what they work on.  Makes me swoon, haha!

Thanks so much for coming by!
