Printable Vintage Fashion Illustration for Altered Art, Graphic Design, Papercrafts or Scrapbooking: Edwardian Lady in the Park with Valerian Border

PROMISE YOURSELF

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

An Edwardian lady in the park with a border of valerian flowers on the left side of the image, 1904; from my personal collection of La Mode Illustrée.

The genus name of valerian comes from the Latin “valere,” which means “to be strong” or “to be healthy,” in reference to the plant’s medicinal properties. It is an ancient herb; the Greeks used valerian to ward off evil, hanging valerian bunches in windows. The Celts hung it in their homes to ward off lightning. The herb was included in both love and sleep potions. Other magical uses include purification, such as consecrating ritual tools, promoting peace, breaking hexes, and providing stability and happiness. Valerian is used for grounding during emotional turbulence and for aiding in creativity.

Advice is a dangerous gift,
even from the wise to the wise, and all courses may run ill.
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient.
Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything,
don't get desperate or blow a fuse
and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone.
You have to realize it's going to be a long process
and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

I was smiling yesterday,I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow.

When we feel lost in time,
with only shadows of the past living in our mind;
when the moment, which “was", no longer "is” and when only silence remains,
loads of questions arise. We can cry a river or we may wonder: “What went wrong?”

Free Printable Fashion History Illustration for Mixed-Media Collage, Graphic Design, Papercrafts or Scrapbooking: Edwardian Ladies on a Winter Walk, 1904

Leaving behind the self you once were is the shredding of the old
for you have outgrown who you once were in your skin.
Out of all this, is born the raw, real,
and unfinished self who is on the journey of becoming.
When the seasons lose their old selves just as winter turns to spring
with the moments tenderly unfolding just as dawn heralds the end of the night.
Jayita Bhattacharjee

A vintage fashion hstory illustration from 1904. The drawing shows two Edwardian ladies out for a walk around town in their warm winter coats and fur stoles. The street seems empty of any hustle and bustle, and the two women seem content to browse the nearby shops in a leisurely manner.

This black and white engraving is from my personal collection of antique La Mode Illustrée magazines.

#Fashionhistory: Edwardian ladies on a promenade by the river, 1904. || #20thcenturyfashion #edwardianfashion #fashionillustration #belleépoque #gildedage #vintageart

♬ original sound - The Real Victorian
Have you also learned that secret from the river;
that there is no such thing as time?
That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth,
at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains,
everywhere and that the present only exists for it,
not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Two vintage fashion hstory illustrations from 1904. In the first, three Edwardian ladies are resting and conversing after they have enjoyed a promenade by the river. In the background, you can see some houses on the other side of the riverbank, and there is also a little row boat gliding by. The top border of the picture is decorated with fancy floral embellishments.

In the second drawing, a trio of ladies in Belle Époque winter capes and coats are out for a walk along the waterfront of a picturesque town. A bridge and a small tower, with a few barges moving along the river can be spotted in the scene behind them.

These black and white engravings are from my personal collection of antique La Mode Illustrée magazines.

its reason for being was nothing more

"But you have said it too often, Mr. Benedict!" said Mrs. Perumal
in an imperious tone that was quite out of character.
"And if you continue in this vein,
I'm afraid we'll be compelled to cut our visit short.
Surely there are other establishments that would host an entire troup of guests - indefinitely and without reward - and not feel obliged to apologize for it!"
Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma

Movement offers us pleasure, identity, belonging and hope. It puts us in places that are good for us, whether that's outdoors in nature, in an environment that challenges us, or with a supportive community. It allows us to redefine ourselves and reimagine what is possible. It makes social connection easier and self-transcendence possible.
Kelly McGonigal, The Joy of Movement

A vintage fashion hstory illustration from 1904. The drawing shows a young Edwardian lady in a winged hat and carrying a parasol on a brisk walk around the park. The upper part of the portrait is enclosed within a round frame that forms a halo around the lady. I have included a portion of the printed page where this illustration was initially published. Original black and white engraving is from my personal collection of antique La Mode Illustrée magazines.
