Free Image Tuesday From One Tired Momma!

Well. James had a little friend over all day. David had a little friend over all day. I need a straight jacket. I am FIT to be tied. Get it? LOL!!! But, the upside is that the boys are worn out tired and this evening will be quiet.

Here is the other photo booth photo I told you about. I am in LOVE with that Little Lurline!!! She is precious and I bet a real handful:) I was also going through my ephemera boxes to post to Etsy today and I found some lovely Victorian scrap for you all. I hope you love them! Love, Jamie

I can't read the other child's name. It looks like Beryl to me. Maybe there was a boy in the missing strip on top.


This is my all time favorite Victorian scrap piece. It is for Willimantic thread. Eddy's is the store that used it for advertising. That is such a sweet little girl!


Such a lovely Mother and Child image. Such a yucky product!

This was an advertisement for Tonic Vermifuge. It will cure what ever is ailing you!
"If worms are causing trouble, the Tonic Vermifuge certainly drives them from the body and removes the nests from which they are propagated." YUCK!!

It also goes on to say that it also helps Dyspepsia, Weak Digestion, Nausea, Water-Brash, Sick Headache, Sour Stomach, Flatulency, Heart Burn and Low Spirits. And that it is helpful to all feeble and weakly women and children.


This is a food supplement for children. Here is the back of the card.

Oh wow woman! These are wonderful images to share! I am loving these photo strips. You are so generous!

Okay tired mama - hope everyone always hangs at your house so you know what's goin' on - it's always worth that, especially the older they get. And you are a smartie to see the silver lining too! Bath and bed early! Uhuh . . . very clever we moms are at times!

Holy Moly - you make be tired and slightly cracked (love that about you ! ;)), but you sure created an extremely juicy FIT here, lady !
Love the stories and oddities that go along with them. My mom has a girlfriend named Beryl by the way - so I know it can be a girl's name.

Hope your boys stay unwound for a little while more to you can play !
Happy Wednesday !

Jamie,
Love you back!!! Your comment made my morning, how generous of you to want to send me some cardstock! I plan on running out this am and getting some so you won't have to send it to me :).
I just have to say that your blog has the coolest look right now with your background of blue ledger and it just looks awesome, something I'm sure you created in that brilliant mind of yours. Want to do one for my blog? I'm kinda tired of mine....

LOVE the saying! And I've heard, a true friend is one who likes you in spite of who you really are!

Did you see Suze's newsletter today....she listed us both on the sidebar...I've had more visits than I could ever remember.

She's such a sweetheart!

Hey sweets, thanks for the kind comments of encouragement on my blog and the sharing of your husbands past story too. It really helps to know others have walked in your shoes and we are never alone. hugs julie

I ran across your blog today. I just love it. Also the song you have on it speaks to me. I don't comment on most of the blogs I subscribe to and that's a fault I'm trying to overcome, but I wanted to thank you for the images. Have a blessed day.

Love the photo booth images, it's so funny to me that with the huge change we have in our daily lives as compared to then, we have that in common. Thanks so much & I love the new blue color in your blog!!!

Nancy Maxwell James said...

hello Sweet Jamie!
Thank you for your kind comments on my blog...I appreciate your love and support.
Love your wonderful images...especially the advertisements. Raising two boys is fun...just remember when they hit their teen years all they do is tease Mom...and it's all good...:)
