Meditation series

A vintage/retro inspired collection of postcards based on a photo of a vintage mannequin face. I fell in love with this stock photo and had to do something with it. I digitally overlaid it with vintage fabric and brightly colorized it, but couldn't stop at one. These postcards make a great gift or a wonderful addition to your postcard collection.

Happy Australia Day!

Yes, January 26th is Australia Day. On this day in 1901, Australia became a federation with its own national government. Prior to this, Australia was a scattered cluster of colonies with no common purpose. Since 1901, we have been a commonwealth.
Australia day is a public holiday nationwide and most celebrate with a traditional backyard barbecue get-together. On my morning walk today, I noticed many houses proudly displaying the Australian flag. I have recently joined the Australian DUST team (down under street team) on Etsy, and never realized the amount of Etsy shops owned by Australians - at least 200! We even got a mention on the Etsy blog, the storque, today, in celebration of Australia day. There's so much talent here! To view click here!

Featured in Sepia Treasury

Hello everybody!

I kept this one to myself and forgot to share it with everyone. Oops!
My print 'Magic in the Conservatory' was featured in a curated Etsy treasury 10 days ago. In my excitement I made a screenshot, saved it to my computer and forgot to upload it! A big thankyou to ThatOldBlueHouse2 for including me. I absolutely love the sepia products in this treasury! Enjoy!

Not into Valentines?

Hi again!

If you're not into Valentines day (and not everyone is), don't despair. I've created a 'note cards' section in my Etsy shop which has more general style blank cards that can be used for many occasions and sentiments such as Birthday, Mothers day, anniversary, friendship, thinking of you, thank you, congratulations etc. The new designs (above) will appear in this section, so don't forget to look there for alternatives to Valentines.

Have a lovely day!

Love is in the air....

It may seem a little early, but Valentines Day will be here sooner than we think! I've noticed newsagents and stationery shops already stocking up with Valentines cards and love notes. So I thought I'd make a start too. I'm in the process of adding these cards to my shop, one day at a time, afterall there's no rush! Enjoy...

Happy New Year - Etsy style!

A very Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2010 is exciting, inspiring, and amazing for everyone! It's been good for me so far.......I was included in my first ETSY treasury! Considering there are thousands of shops on Etsy, I'm surprised that someone found my little shop and was kind enough to feature one of my products. So many thanks go to the curator of this treasury, Ashli from TheVintagePatisserie. My vintage portrait is amongst many quality items from Etsy, a fabulous selection overall.
