~MORE FREE CLAPSADDLE GRAPHICS...and The Beauty Herself~

~Sweet Ellen Clapsaddle~
At About 10 Years Old

Last week I shared with you some aging graphics from the ever popular Miss Ellen Hattie Clapsaddle. By now you know how much I love this artist's work. While doing even more research on her life I FINALLY found a couple of pictures of this extremely talented lady! I just had to share them with you... From what I understand these are the only two photographs of her that remain today.

While organizing some of my seasonal images I came across a few more I think you will just love. I know it is early in the year, but for those of you who plan ahead (like me!) Easter isn't all that far away!

Feel free to use these darling Clapsaddle images as you please. I'd love to see what you do with them!

~Brundage or Clapsaddle?~

The vintage postcard above is unsigned and I'm not positive who the artist on this one is. Sometimes the work of Frances Brundage and Ellen Clapsaddle looks similar. I've included this one for you because I love both artists!

Blessings to you as you continue to create beautiful things within your happy heart...Rebecca

Dear Sweet Rebecca,

Thank you for sharing more of your collection of graphics. I know I will find just the right projet to use them on.

The one with the girl in the pink coat and black knee pants reminds me of Mary Englebeit's work.

Have a wonderful blessed weekend.

XOXOXO, Carol

Good Morning Sweet Rebecca...
Your post is absolutely beautiful as always.

I love the little girl inside of the egg. She is just bursting with love and excitement. Thank you for sharing them with me today.

I pray you are all well. I am finally starting to feel a little better today. I have been battling bronchitis for almost 10 days now. It has so affected my asthma making it quite difficult just to breathe. A little better today.

Take care sweet girl. Happy to see you again as always.

Country hugs, Sherry

Hi Rebecca! I am a Clapsaddle fan myself! I appreciate the pictures you shared of her. I never thought about their being any pictures of the artist herself, so I enjoyed seeing those. Her artwork is so sweet. I collect postcards and have some of hers and a couple of Brundage ones. I kind of think the last one looks more the Brundage style. I sure appreciate you sharing these images with us. Enjoy your weekend. Twyla

Hi Rebecca!
Your blog is a treat I don't give myself often enough..silly me. Your images are wonderful, and I enjoyed knowing the artist names. Your pillows are beautiful like your roses, and overall style. I like the way you have 3 columns and blogposting on the left...how did you do it...I'm enjoying your music too, so nice when you have insomnia to spend the time here.
Many blessings in your Sunday.
Love
Marcie
