They show chickens that were highly valued at the beginning of the 20th century when even city dwellers might have a few chickens in their backyard so they could enjoy fresh eggs.

These illustrations are beautifully made and would look wonderful separately on stationery, letter head, gift wrap or in other paper crafts.

You could also use the images decoratively on your Easter table.

Antique Easter post cards are so sweet. This one is from about 1910 and someone had a sense of humor! 

Print these postcards off and use them in decorating or table decor. You could always send them out in the mail if you print them on cards stock.

I frame some of mine and use them in the kitchen where I have 2 picture frames that I swap out seasonal postcards from my collection. Each frame holds 3 postcards.

I hope you enjoy these! (More Style Than Cash will not appear on your printable).

Party t-shirts
It is hard to think of cheap but original loot bag stuff but this is a trick I use to do all the time for my children's parties.

It is easy to customize a t-shirt with just a small scrap of fabric.

You can usually find inexpensive t-shirts at discount stores and clear out stores.

With just a bit of co-ordinating  fabric and some time on the sewing machine you can whip together matching themed t-shirts.



Florist Tricks to Make Fake Flowers Look Real

How to make silk flowers look realFlipping through fancy-schmancy magazines showing high end homes you would be surprised to know how many of those jaw dropping flower arrangements you see in the back ground are made from artificial flowers.

Only the extremely wealthy can afford huge fresh flower arrangements every week so for the rest of the well to-do set, fakes rule the day. 

No one will argue that fresh flowers are wonderful but if you have severe allergies, you are just too busy to enjoy them, they are out of season and terribly expensive or you want flowers in the house for a special occasion but you won't have time the day before to pick them up then go fake!

In an effort to make them sound better the term faux flowers and permanent flowers are often thrown about but a silk flower is a silk flower (actually most of the good ones are synthetic). So how come the fake flower arrangements you tend to see just look, well, fake? How can you have the same gorgeous fauxs you see in the magazines?

 Here are seven secrets in how you can get those same arrangements at a fraction of the cost and have guest not knowing if they are from your garden or not.

To celebrate the 2012 Westminster Dog show I wanted to share these vintage dog prints.

They are from about 1910-1920 and it is very interesting  the way the breeds have changed over the years. Who would have thought that there were dog grooming styles that go in and out of fashion.

These prints would look great matted and framed in any dog lovers home.

There are three prints showing a variety of familiar dogs such as Fox Terriers, Poodles, Beagles and Irish Setters.

These images could also be used in craft projects, to make cards or (as suggest by Karen, one of my readers) it would make fantastic wrapping paper for fellow dog lovers. (More Style Than Cash will not appear on your printable.)

This years winner of the 136th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was a 4 year old Pekingese named Malachy.

Royal Warrants are handed out to the makers of the favorite things the Royal family enjoys.

While you would need a Queen's fortune to manage the castles and a royal staff read on and find out how to treat yourself to some the same goodies enjoyed by the Royal family for only a few dollars.
