old fashioned links

I haven't updated in a long time, and decided that while I am stressed with a lot of different things, I need to update this blog at least once this week.

Here is a collection of some of my favorite historical links:

Old Paint
Updated almost every day with paintings from the past. I love having this blog in my Reader because it is refreshing to see some of these great works of art every day. I only wish there was a historical explanation for some of the more interesting works, but I also love to draw my own conclusions. Enjoy.

The Flapper Girl
Recent find. Glamorous shots of the glamorous Flappers.

Vintage Ads
I just found this today. It has a great collection of interesting advertisements of the past. I linked this one to a very sad and interesting ad from war propaganda.

Art Deco
Very interesting art pieces. I especially enjoyed the deco from the 30s.

If you have any more feel free to share. I will add more as I find them, but for now, this must suffice. Back to finals!

P.S. Next week is the commemorative anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. I will be visiting the exhibit in Idaho Falls on April 14 (the day the ship struck the iceberg) and, if I can take pictures, will add them here. If not, I will just update with my experience.
