Anemones 5 Ways — Free Vintage Friday

It’s been a rainy and quite honestly kind of a dreary summer so far. I haven’t been gardening as much as I initially hoped. In fact, I still have some veggie seeds that need planting and I’m not even sure I’ll be able to plant them at all given the late timing and the lack of overall motivation. Last year was such a bountiful year in our garden and this year equally matches its bountifulness with its lackluster performance. The flowers seem behind in growth as I sit, waiting patiently for some blooms.

This is probably why these gorgeous vintage anemones spoke to me the moment I saw them. I knew they would be perfect in my summer journaling (if and) when my flowers start to bloom. Dating back to the the 1750s this anonymous vintage illustration titled, Anemones 5 Ways, once graced the halls of The Rijksmuseum and now can be a special part of your journaling experience.

To celebrate the official start to summer, I thought I would include it as this week’s Free Vintage Friday. This is a full-size image, measuring about 10.5 x 8″ and when printed 6 to a page, is the perfect sized journaling card, thank you note, or tuck spot.

  1. Thank you so much! These are lovely. I’ve just discovered you recently and enjoy your blog and creativeness very much. I enjoy making junk journals, portfolios, envelope journals….well, I enjoy LOTS of paper related crafts. 🙂 I truly appreciate you sharing so many wonderful images that I can use in my various projects.

  2. Hello Gina,

    Thank you for the free printable. I love these flowers and didn’t know what they were called until now. Thanks

    Sorry to hear that the weather is not summer-like. We are going into a hot spell here in Alberta, Canada and I’m not looking forward to it. For about 5 or 6 days, temperatures will be in the mid 30 degree Celsius or about 95 degrees Fahrenheit. The comfortable temperature is around 20 or 21 degrees Celsius or 70 degrees Fahrenheit. For the past week we’ve had temperatures hovering 26 degrees C or 79 degrees F. We don’t have air conditioning in our house and make due with fans. I’m not a hot weather person so I take it slow when the temperature goes over 25 degrees and stay in the shade if I go outside.

    Thank you again, and I look forward to Sunday’s journaling video.

    1. Hi Erika! Thanks for your comment. Oh no — that is hot to be without air. I bet the beautiful environment surrounding you makes up for the hot spell! I would love to visit there!
