"A nostalgist's dream come true"*

 How would you feel about being able to download, print and frame images-of-old?

The Verge* just announced that the New York Public Library just made it possible to access nearly 200,000 nostalgic images from icons and images of cultures to pre-victiorian art.


 "A is for angler...."



Do you like to mat and frame sheet music that tells people a little about you or where you come from?  Maybe your mom's and dad's soul song! Remind me to look for Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White; I think Mom and Dad would love it.



Just maybe, you're interest doesn't lie in the framing the pretty cover but placing the music on your piano and bringing it back to life!

Try it! You'll like it! Something for everyone! New York Library Digital Collection.

    1. Discovered some wonderful images yesterday which inspired some future art projects. I do hope people visit, download and encourage the library to offer more. Don't you love the internet for so many reasons?

    1. The elf photos are beautiful. Perfect environment for them.

      I do hope you are doing well. It is so hard to heal when you are stressed. Your daughter will be okay, especially with phone calls. Take care of yourself.
