I am just wondering if any of you know of a good online source of vintage / retro clip art and greeting card images? Bakerella had a recent post where she had made vintage Valentine cookie pops, using vintage Valentine cards printed on icing sheets. They were absolutely adorable. It got me thinking it would be a great thing to do as a gift for birthdays, baby showers, Christmas etc. I have been searching the internet for a good source of images but either the downloads are too expensive, or the free sites have mostly just black and white line drawings. I particularly like the retro styles of the 50's and 60's. Any suggestions would be fantastic!

Since nobody else has chimed in I will share with you what I eventually found. I kept searching and eventually came across some nice downloadable collage sheets on I downloaded some really fun images which I am going to use for cookies, if I can ever get the @*#$% printer to work.

I too saw Bakerella's cookies. I loved them! Have you tried emailing her? Maybe she could give you some insight on where to look. I too love the old vintage stuff.

I did actually email Bakerella, and asked where she got those sweet valentines pics, and where I could find more. Have not heard anything back, yet.

For some reason I did not get the notification to say I had replies here, but thanks all for your helpful replies. Chilz822, you found some great images there! snowbuns, let me know what Bakerella says if she gets back to you.
