Note before viewing the directory: My graphics collections are NOT generic clipart collections.

These high-quality images are color digital web graphics (except for some black and white or sepia diagrams), 
maps, sketches or charts), are derived from vintage ephemera resources, and are generally collected, scanned, 
photographed, cropped or enhanced in some way to create higher quality images  and format for your personal
 use. Many hours are still being spent adding to, and sifting through, a 20-year digital collection of many 
thousands of vintage graphics and art files stored on 3 hard drives, 2 stand-alone drives, and on the Cloud. Most 
were utilized in my previous gig as a graphics and website designer. I customize and re-package the images
as themed collections of  high-quality imagery for your pages and personal projects.  It bears repeating......
As wonderful as the images are, they are generally not created in a resolution suitable for printing projects without
 enhancement using a graphics program.  Those suitable for printing as-is, will be noted in collection descriptions.

In some cases, you might want to use or download a graphics editor for editing imagery that needs cleanup, cropping or resizing to suit your own needs. Scans of book pages are generally not cropped. Sizes are assorted, some ephemera may have original marks, faint writing, age ghosting, signatures (on old greeting cards) etc. You will also need the ability to extract large sizes of .zip files and saving them to your computer files. Most systems do have a built-in zip file extractor. If not, you can easily find and download free .zip file apps from the web.

All images are useful for digital  journals, diaries, non-profit websites, and to attach to your personal email. Vntage greeting card collections will eventually be offered for personal sharing of greetings. 

.Zip file downloads are regularly tested. We don't have a tech staff to help you if you cannot download. Please try emptying your computer's temporary files, trash bin, cookies folder, and check your security and anti-virus/malware settings to be sure that you can download files from the web, that you have room on your hard drive to download, extract and save the images. Best to do that before attempting the downloads. There is absolutely no refund for purchased packages that you cannot download or use. Once our premium graphics leave this site, they're technically out in the wild, and we have no idea of their ultimate destination.

Enjoy the graphics, enjoy your visit to the site, and be sure to visit occasionally for new stuff, more gardening articles, and my photography. This site and it's offerings are alway a work in progress. As am I. 
Links to this site are always welcome so that others may enjoy it.
