The “centerfold” of this April 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla magazine was a detailed pattern and instructions on how to crochet filet pattern lace and create bridal teacloth, napkins, pincushion, scarfs, scarf ends, and doilies.

Here is some 1917 advice and articles from the Modern Priscilla on adding lace to women’s clothing, decorating hats with embroidery, and an article or advertisement about Summer Blouses of Viole fabric. I scanned these several times to capture both the vintage ads as well as the articles from this magazine. I especially enjoyed the(…)

I scanned thru the needle work section of the April 1917 issue of The Modern Priscilla, which had patterns and advice on making doilies, tatted edges on linens, crochet patterns, small hand sewn gifts for the bride, and other needlework ideas. I’ve scanned several of these twice, because my scanner bed wasn’t big enough to(…)

Apparently this ladies’ home and house keeping magazine’s issue was just published right before the United States entered World War I in April of 1917. The theme of this month’s issue of The Modern Priscilla was “Weddings”. I’m loving the old fashion advertisements in this end-of-the-Edwardian period women’s magazine, and also the embroidery and crochet lace patterns(…)

I found these old turn of the century wedding photos especially fascinating, especially the girl in the black wedding dress that looks quite corseted. I wish I knew more about turn of the century fashions, because I am guessing that the black would be from the 1890s and the white dresses from more about 1910s?(…)

This is my second to last batch of turn of the century photo scans, and I’ve divided them roughly into “children” and “adults”. One of the little girls’ photos had a small picture fall out from the backing of the cardboard when I picked it up to scan, and I’ve included a scan of it(…)
I’m trying to wrap up posting all the old images that I’ve scanned so far… the second to last batch! I hope to start 2012 off much more organized and consistent, perhaps with a new look, too!

I found a date on these turn of the century children’s and family photos I scanned. On the back of the photo of the young woman in a white dress by St. Louis photographer J. Hass, was written “1906″ (which I also scanned). I’m guessing that the other photos in this group were also from the(…)
This is a lovely feathered hat which I dated to the late 50s or early 60s. It had white and black feathers in it, creating a soft, fluffy, and totally “mod” look. In one of these 1950s styled photos, I posed the model with a hat box.
I’ve marked down my slightly damaged dresses to between $2-$20, with LOTS of $5 and $10 dresses! Looking to get rid of the bulk of my gently used vintage. Discounts on bulk purchases!
ALSO – LOTS of random miscellany, vintage and lightly used new!!
Here are a few of my latest scans. The family photo in the white frame was dated 1913 on the back. The last one is clearly a class photo that some small child or angsty teen has drawn thru and torn up a bit – is it from the first decade of the 20th century?(…)
Here are some old pictures in cool old cardboard frames. The photo of the young man was stamped April 20, 1930. Otherwise there are no dates.

The picture that grips me most from this set is the turn of the century photo of the little blonde toddler next to a chair taken by Hans Jaggli from Winterthur Sweden. The back is stamped with: H.

This old family photo with the art deco border stamped August 20, 1927 on the back, is one of my favorite pictures so far. I wish I knew the story behind it, but I can imagine on the expressions of the people around this old Model T. The old woman looks absolutely worried and nervous.(…)

Here’s ZiZi modeling an Edwardian Lace Dress. I’ve posted a few untouched close ups of the dress so you can see the intricate details in the lace. It was an amazing piece and required minimal styling to bring a turn of the century mood. I especially loved her poses with the violin.
The young in the black dress looks very uncomfortable, as if her corset has been laced too tight. The young man staring directly into the camera, perfectly exposed and focused, is my favorite of this set. Then, there’s a child on a play horse, and a photo of young people on a bridge that is(…)

These pictures were inserted into archival plastic sleeves with no apparent order! There is a very pretty young girl, and on the back it’s dated “Christmas 1885″. Another, from 1889 by Hagendorff of Milwaukee Wisconsin… is this one of the same girl? I like the one of the older woman with glasses in a black(…)

J. Haas shot a very lovely looking portrait of a young couple, which I am guessing (but not sure) would be around 1908-ish because of her high necked long tulip flared gown and poofed sleeves. Please correct me in the comments if I’m wrong! I am finding the backs of these old photos more informative(…)

I wish I could date this un-credited photo of a worried young soldier… was it the 1890s, or earlier? I also can’t date the un-credited family photo, which is fading. Here is an interesting scan of a very proper young man, by When, and I also scanned the back of it. I think that Block(…)
