Free printable bookmark/tag for Mother's Day - Victorian + Quote

Just on a whim, after finding this quote in an old 1914 book that once belonged to my Aunt, I decided to put together a matching graphic in a meaningful way.
Fortunately I found a Victorian image that seemed to match, and so made this antique-type look - can be made into tags or bookmark. Click on the image for full size to print.
Can be used for personal projects as much as you like. Can be used in commercial projects, e.g. art journals, etc. But cannot be used for selling this image/quote in digital form, either as is, or altered. Thank you. If you need other permissions or are unsure, please email me.

And Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there!

New print of my original watercolor painting of pink rose teacup on old book page.

I've offered prints on old book pages in my Etsy store before, as well as currently. But this is a first.

I was thinking how much I love teacups, especially those with pink roses, and then thinking how popular prints of my watercolor of one has been. I had an old book from 1876 nearby, and was thinking of printing on the pages of it. And from there, this became my new creation (using my own art for printing onto old book pages).

It would be great for a feminine themed area, tea shop / cafe, or would suit shabby chic decor.

The book has some wonderful old quotations from Victorian times. Did people ACTUALLY talk like this - thee, and thoust, etc.? This is the real thing - you get the book page with the print on it. If it sells, I may offer more - just on different pages, of course.

Available on Etsy in my "Dreamy Papers" store.
