Vintage Thanksgiving Clip Art

vintage clip art thanksgiving turkey with farm childrenVintage Thanksgiving Card Graphic
Antique cards with charming vintage illustrations are a favorite for altered books and scrapbook art. I like to use vintage clip art graphics to make collages and greeting cards. This cute old time card features a picture of 2 farm children feeding a huge tom turkey, fattening him up for Thanksgiving. There are other images in this collection including a patriotic Thanksgiving graphic of a turkey and a bald eagle vying for the top position on a stars and stripes pedestal (but that's another story).

Panda Bear Clip Art

When I was a wee tot, my favorite stuffed animal wasn't a teddy bear, it was a panda bear. I have no idea what happened to that stuffed panda lovey from long ago, but I added a new one to my toys in the attic collection about 10 years ago.

I made this panda clip art in honor of all the new baby panda cubs born this season, and it jogged my memory of a little girl's panda more than half a century ago.

Here's a free panda graphic for clip art crafts. He's not a Kung Fu panda, but he could learn ...
