1880's Pretty Advertisement Tags

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley ~



These beautiful Victorian illustrations
inspired me to create within minutes of finding them!
I didn't have to add much, as they were already so charming.
The little girl illustration didn't have any typography,
so in keeping with the clothing theme,
I added part of an advertisment for spool cotton.

Here are the sources for the
free graphics I used.
Thank you!
