HAPPY

MOTHER’S

DAY !

In the world of childbirth, Mother’s Day is a very special day. I have enjoyed years of watching a women become a mother either for the first time or again and again on this very day. It is always wonderful to share that experience with them.  Fabulously Joyful!

But today, I get to be home, pampered by my hubby and just milling about… I came across some wonderful websites carrying fabulous vintage engravings and various clip art. I absolutely adore antique engravings! I have some framed and others saved for something I’ll get to one day…  😉

This first few photos above are images courtesy of antiqueprints.com depicting mother and children. There are two WONDERFUL Antique Breastfeeding Engravings! These are all steel engravings with hand color in the first two.

The remainder of art below is from a website called “The Graphics Fairy” and all of these photos  are to Karen’s credit over there. Beautiful!

Enjoy!
