****WELCOME FRIENDS****
I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Your never too old....


A collection of vintage Greeting cards and Postcards!


In my pursuit of finding graphics that I could use in my designs,
I stumbled upon the world of gorgeous old postcards and greeting cards.
Most of what I found is at my fingertips on flickr and I have even joined some of the groups sharing what I have found in my antique and flea market hunts.
I have used many of them in my blog designs and even some etsy shop banners.
Here are a few, feel free to help yourself!

Love the old postcard motifs. Some remind me of the old florist gift cards some people still had when we started our flower shop in the 70's. There were some old shops and wholesalers that still had packs of unopened cards from the
40's!! Wish I had those today.
Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog..you're entered in the giveaway

Hi Debbi, postcards is one of my passions and one of the first things I collected. I don't only love the graphics but also adore reading them. They usually have very simple words but so meaningful! It also amazes me how they have lasted so long, some of mine are way over 100 years old..there's no way a B-card today will last like that! Thank you for playing today!
