Ladies of Leisure

Our new Ladies of Leisure set on www.printableheaven.com has already had a great reception so I thought I'd show you a few more pictures in the same vain.

A couple of the pics in this set came from a vintage tile catalogue from 1921, Home Suggestions from the Associated Tile Manufacturers in Pennsylvania.  You can probably guess which of the images in this set came from here - the tiles in the background are a real give-away!

As usual, it doesn't mean they're not lovely pictures because they are - as I've said before, catalogues for products were often beautifully illustrated back then with proper drawings and paintings rather than photographs.  On this subject, I must really publish some pictures of mangles and household equipment I found in a catalogue a while back - next time.

Digressing as I often do......  Here are the tile catalogue pictures:-





Lovely, aren't they?  I especially like the last one - very summery and beautiful.  And the guy in the housecoat is very Noel Coward.

Carpet-sweepers and mangles next time!
