Bees and Beehives: Free Digital Downloads and Clip Art

I found another old scrapbook recently, this one filled with clippings from the early 1920s with a beautiful cover designed with a beehive, bees and blossoms. It’s worn, yellowed and fabulous. I couldn’t resist but scan and share. Click on the cover for a larger image to keep and use.

I also scanned several other beehives and bees from one of my printers’ clip art books dated around the same time. I just know you’ll create something wonderful with them. If you do, I would love to see it. Enjoy!
