For As Long As I Can Remember

…I have loved papers.

What child collected vintage books because they thought they were beautiful and smelled amazing..that would be me.

I can not walk past a paper shop…it is truly one of my very favorite kinds of shops in the world.

I am a fan of vintage books, cards, sheet music and any vintage ephemera I can get my hands on!

It is the history lover in me that loves touching the past.

When I look back on what I have been drawn to over the past 15-20 years it doesn't surprise me in the least that papers…new and old….are at the heart of my creations.

(originally $22)

In honor of this love of mine… last day of sales will be all items in my shop that are made of paper.

(originally $48)

All of the paper items have been marked down and free shipping will still apply.

    Jeanne, Count me in with the “paper girls” – I have always loved paper of any kind. We have a used book store in town and I could spend HOURS in there going through old books, looking for wonderful paper pages. Old, new, it doesn’t matter – I love it all!

    I love what you do with paper girlie. Such a neat gift! Have a wonderful weekend Jeanne.
    BTW Brian is ready to move to Colorado. He’s never met you, but he wants to be neighbors…HA! When it’s this cold…it doesn’t take much to make him want to jump ship:)

    That is a great way to use songsheets!!! I could decoupage my kitchen table with them, I swear. But then I’d get in trouble and I don’t want that before the holidays. A girl can’t be grounded the week before Christmas.

    No sugar now? Isn’t that a little nutty? (I’m just finishing up the crumbs from the last of one box of peppermint bark)
