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!

    Dad at 92 gone years to date was a beekeeper as his Dad before him. His donkey carrying him and bee hives fell down the gully into top end tributary of Hope River in Jamaica. Young and strong he survived the swarm of bee stings. He refused to teach us this wonderful craft which even now still fascinates me. I loved Grandma Violet Chisholm feeding us bits of honeycomb during honey harvesting time.
