While toodling about on the internet I decided to look for vintage Easter card images. Low and behold, there were quite a few open stock images available. A rule of thumb is that if you can print the image by itself without any accompanying text or web page detail it is more than likely open stock. If it is on someones personal web page assume that it is a privately held image.
I printed the images on card stock from my HP printer and they turned out very well. I cut them out and needed to find a way to put them on the walls without framing them. School teachers know about blue tack (sp?) temporary adhesive. It is a putty that you soften in your hands, then pull off small pieces to stick on the back of a picture. You press the picture with the blue tack onto the wall and it sticks up quite firmly. To remove just pull the picture off and roll the blue tack off with your fingers.
Easter is over, so I decided to change Mom's decorations to vintage seed packet images. I just googled "vintage seed packet images". Vintage seed packets are quite beautiful. You can find bright, vibrant colors and soft pastels. They are all works of art as they were hand painted/drawn by artists, not photographed as they are today.
