"Agriculture is our wisest pursuit,
because it will in the end contribute most to
real wealth, good morals, and happiness."
~ Letter from Thomas Jefferson to George Washington (1787) ~
I didn't grow up on a farm, but my husband did. We live just down the road from the original homestead of Catherine & Edward Berry, my husband's (5 times) great-grandparents, who settled here in 1807. Several generations of farming families are the result of what they started over 200 years ago.
Here are two tags I created using original graphics
from a children's book (the title and back cover pages),
combined with a Farm Sale document from 1792.
I made the green tag smaller for the collage sheet.
To see the image at full size, left click then right click
and select 'View Image.'
These are the original images I scanned, then cleaned up a bit.
Note that I did brighten up both graphics for the tags.
The book is actually 13.5" by 9.5", so a fairly good size.
It's copyright ~ 1917.
All graphics are free for your personal use ~ Enjoy!
If you use them, please let me know...
Thanks for stopping by!
