Saturday Image Bonus 196

It has been a crazy holiday season and I have not had a chance to post lately.  I am still looking for an editing software and the thought of posting without repairing the images has discourage me.  Today I am posting some pages from a December 1911 McCall's magazine.  It has some great ads and some wonderful sketches of dresses.  The cover art is a beautiful wreath with a girl.

I got a new scanner this week and my beloved old software program will not work with it.  I am trying to find the right new software for scanning and repairing images.  I also want to use it to make my digital stamps.  If any of you have any suggestions on software to use on a MAC that doesn't cost too much I would appreciate it.  In the meantime, please bear with me.  I am not able to repair these images much as I like.  Below are Christmas postcards from the early 1900's.

Saturday Image Bonus 194

Today I have some Christmas postcards I found at the flea market this summer.  They have postmarks from 1907 to 1911.  I love to hunt for interesting cards at the market.  Unfortunately the flea market closed for the winter last week.  Luck for all of you I still have lots of treasures to post.
