Free Vintage Outdoor Illustration for Collage or Junk Journaling : A Family Gathering in the Garden 1

"Family life is a bit like a runny peach pie,
not perfect, but who’s complaining?”
Robert Brault

A rather odd illustration originally published in 1892. A family is gathered outdoors in the garden. Can you spot the peculiarities in the group of children on the right side of the picture? You can download the high-res 12" x 12" @ 300 ppi illustration without a watermark for collage or junk journal projects here.

Public Domain Victorian Poem for the Nursery: A Song from Mother to Daughter (Kid's Poetry, 1879)

Here is the poem in full:

Play, baby, in thy cradle play --
Tick goes the clock, tick-tick, tick-tick;
And quick goes time, quick, quick!
Grow, baby, grow, with every day --
Tick goes the clock, tick-tick, tick-tick;
And babyhood will pass away,
For quick goes time, quick, quick!

Not long can mother watch thee so --
Tick goes the clock, tick-tick, tick-tick;
And quick goes time, quick, quick!
To pretty girlhood thou wilt grow --
Tick goes the clock, tick-tick, tick-tick;
To womanhood, before we know,
For quick goes time, quick, quick!

Play, baby, in thy cradle play --
Tick goes the clock, tick-tick, tick-tick;
And quick goes time, quick, quick!
And some brave lad will come some day --
Tick goes the clock, tick-tick, tick-tick;
And steal my baby's heart away;
Ah, quick goes time, quick, quick!

You can download the full version of the poem as it was originally printed here. Lovely as a framed print but can also be used in a Mother's Day card or baby album.
