Oh, and links / emails etc. to show how you used these will help to inspire me to continue to create them!

And now, on to the images. First, a Christmas image, from, of all things, a turn of the century edition of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales:

Christmas tree

This is from the story of the little fir tree who wanted to be a Christmas tree.

I’m sorry that the frame is not quite straight – the scan was a bit crooked apparently, and I couldn’t remove the frame because of the way the children were in the picture. Here are two greetings for the holidays:

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

Get out those pencils and markers and have fun coloring all the separate ornaments! Okay, now for something that requires a bit of explanation. For reasons that are too lengthy to go into here, an old friend of mine are in the habit of sending each other cow-themed cards, especially birthday cards. Her birthday is coming up in a month and a half. So in that spirit, I provide the following graphic and various sentiments:

Holstein Cow

A cow, who just needs a cute little birthday hat to make a great birthday card.

Party 'til the cows come home!

A matching birthday sentiment

Cowabunga Dude!

A more generic but youthful pun-ny sentiment.

The Cow by Ogden Nash

And my favorite Ogden Nash poem.

Of course, I need to include a couple more flowers, since the flowers are so popular!


Bachelor's button

Hyacinths are marvelous because they come in a wide range of colors – from blue-violet to pink to white. To me, they are a sure sign of Spring.

And finally, a Victorian illustration of a lady of Tudor times, and a Tudor rose to go with her.

Lady in Tudor Clothes

The type of skirt she is wearing is called a 'farthingdale'.

Tudor Rose

A heraldic rose.

And with that, I am done for today!

This daily deluge has forced me to become more specific on images and sentiments I download as my storage becomes overloaded! I love all the images you.find and post but its your sentiments that I ALWAYS download! Cow-abunga indeed. The poem I’d never heard before but encapsulates a cow indeed.
