Vintage Thanksgiving Images | Public Domain | Condition Free

Vintage Thanksgiving Images and Art ~ Free Use

A collection of vintage warm and homey Thanksgiving images and art. Some are delightfully old fashioned and others cute and fanciful. I can think of dozens of projects to use these for, from dinner cards to scrapbook pages. If you're good with a photo editor, you can save some as coloring pages.

The Thanksgiving images presented here are from my vintage paper collection. I've inherited and collected antique and vintage images for many years and now I'd like to share them. There are no conditions for their use. They are copyright free and in the public domain. To use them simply right-click the image and save. No link or credit to this site is necessary, but I wouldn't complain if you did.

There's the dinner bell. It's time for Thanksgiving!
