  1. I just found your site a little bit ago. I love it. Thank you for saving all these vintage pictures and other vintage items. These are the things I love.

      1. Hi Gunnvor Karita, Please can You help Me. I lost all My files when My old computer broke & I’ve been trying to replace everything. But I cannot find My favorite tags of Yours at all. They had flying birds on them. Cockatoos I believe & I think it may have been from a vintage fabric. They were like art deco fabric covered tags with birds in blues, reds & off whites. I loved them. Do You know the tags I mean? Thank You by the way, I always talk about You on My YouTube Channel & use Your printables in My Journals that I show. Please come back. We miss You!

      2. Hello Rebekah. Sadly WoW has been on the backburner for a very long time now, and I’m not sure if I will ever rekindle the site. I just stumbled upon your question from last year, and hope you found the tags you were searching for. If not, I’d be happy to help search for them, but from your description I can’t say I know which tags they are… The only suggestion for fabric covered tags in these colors are these: – and they don’t have birds… πŸ˜› If you read this now and still have not found the tags you are missing, please let me know and I’ll look some more. xoxoxo

  2. we are so lucky to be inspired by people such as you with such beautiful work and to be able to enjoy using it
    Thanks from Australia

    1. Hello Dear! Thank you for the lovely comment, and please accept my apologies for such a late answer! WordPress alerts me of new messages, but every once in a while I discover messages that has snuck in under the radar…lol! I’m very happy that you enjoy my site, and hope you will visit again and again πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

  3. I saved your list of sites for ephemera and pictures. I am so glad that you are sharing, I hope I can figure out how to make things with them.


    1. Thank you Dear πŸ™‚

      If you have not used graphics much, may I suggest you start with colalge sheets (that someone already created as easy printables for cutting out images by hand)? I have a few collage sheets here on WoW, and so does many of the sites I have listed here.

      Also you might want to look for projects that has a ready made printable of some sort, thus all you need to do is print the pages, and start crafting.

      Love & Light
      Gunnvor Karita

    1. Indeed Hunny, your stuff is gorgeous, how could I keep it from my readers…lol!! Merry Christmas to you too, and may your New Year be creative and prosperous πŸ˜€ xoxoxo

    1. Awww, thank you Sharon πŸ™‚ I’m vry happy you are finding inspirational things here on WoW! You should try some of my links too, they are the sites that inspire me and provide lots of free graphics πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

    1. Happy New Year to you too, Barbara πŸ™‚

      I created this page as a reference to myself, and I’m very pleased if others can enjoy it too πŸ˜€ There’s lots of free beautiful vintage stuff to find πŸ˜€ xoxoxo

  5. Thank you for offering such yummy pictures. I have a small booth in a local shop and would appreciate your permission to use some of the graphics for my scrappy projects – cards, bookmarks, etc. Is that permissible, or can I only use them for my personal projects and not to sell?? Thanks again.

    1. Dear Rosie! Thank you so much for the lovely comment. I will write you a personal email about using the printables for your shop, so watch your inbox later tonight. xoxoxo

  6. where will I find the printable??? I am very new to printing and crafting but I LOVE your site …!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    are you in the Northwest?? Seattle????

    1. Click on the Cherub Download button, and you will be taken to the download folder πŸ™‚ I’m in the northwestern part of Norway…lol! A small town called Volda: I love easy, and trying to make easy projects, so poke around, and I’m sure you’ll find many projects that can be done with very simple tools and limited supplies. I think the main things you will need is a decent printer (and paper to go with it), glue and scissors πŸ˜€ Of course I have some projects that will ask for a bit more supplies, but you can ease into those a bit down the road. May I suggest a great starter project: For his project you don’t even need glue, just a little twine or yarn to close the finished gift box πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

  7. Amazing. Just what I love and need. Thank you so much. Going to make all the sewing items. I feel spoiled.

  8. Hi,
    Merry Christmas….found your site through Pinterest….WOW!!!! I downloaded your Christmas cottages, printed, cut, glued, sprinkled some glue, some snowtex and they came out super adorable, they are hanging on a small tree in my office. Love it and thank you for your hardwork.


    1. Thank you so much Lily πŸ™‚ I’m very pleased to hear that you have enjoyed creating a Christmas village! I’d love to see a picture, before you remove the seasonal decorations? I wish you a wonderful and happy New Year, and hope you find more inspirational projects here on WoW in the year to come πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

  9. Thanks so much for sharing your images. I’m also a cherub, or anything with wings fan. I’m the mother of five, granny of 9, and great gran of 6. I love crafting, and wish that some of the great grand kids will also be creative when they are a little older. Your background is absolutely beautiful. May you and your loved ones have a fantastic creative 2016. πŸ™‚ Wilhelmina south africa
