Vintage Travel Graphic for Crafts, Collage, Scrapbooking or Card Making: Two Victorian Ladies Viewing the Hudson

“Paradise was always over there, a day’s sail away.
But it’s a funny thing, escapism. You can go far and wide and you can keep moving on and on through places and years, but you never escape your own life.
I, finally, knew where my life belonged. Home.”
― J. Maarten Troost, Getting Stoned with Savages: A Trip Through the Islands of Fiji and Vanuatu

A black and white illustration from June 7, 1893. The image shows two Victorian ladies, one seated and one standing, on a little hilly mound surrounded by trees and wildflowers.

Antique Illustration for Crafts, Collage, Scrapbooking or Card Design: Two Edwardian Teens with Garden Swing 1

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
― Henri J.M. Nouwen, Out of Solitude: Three Meditations on the Christian Life

Two young Edwardian women in the garden - one sways gently back and forth on a simply made swing as she converses with a friend standing just behind her.

Vintage Travel Illustration for Crafts, Collage, Scrapbooking or Card Making: Edwardian Lady in Lavender and Grey

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back.
So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors.
And the people there see you differently, too.
Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
