Happy Saint Patricks' Day - A gift for you !


 
 
 
 
 
 
 



                                                    Happy Saint Patricks' Day !

     I wanted to share these beautiful examples of Artist Ellen H. Clapsaddle (1865-1934)




                                  Ellen was an American illustrator/ commercial artist

           from New York, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Her style is easily recognizable

                     and greatly admired. She is known as the most prolific souvenir/postcard

                                                      and greeting card artist of her era. 
        



 
These Post Cards can be saved to your computer and used for craft projects.
 
You already know that I will print these on card stock and trim them to size. Save a used TEA BAG,
 
squeeze most of the liquid out of the bag and gently rub around the edges to AGE your card.
 
Look back to Valentines Day to see how to make wire holders for your vintage salt shakers.
  
 
 
 
 
What sweet little faces!
 
 
 
 
 Wire can be added to plants or standing up in shaker lids

 
Thanks for stopping by ! xo Lisa S
