Woodland Fall Gift Tags - FREE Gift With Purchase in September

How cute are these printable gift tags? I've been in an autumn mood since the kids have been back in school, and even though it's still hot as blazes here in Los Angeles, I burn my pumpkin-scented candles and look forward to cooler days. I love fall! Hence these pretty fall-themed gift tags.

They are perfect for birthday presents and hostess gifts -- and could even be used as place cards on your autumn table! Best of all, they are FREE with purchase during the month of September. Enjoy!

New Bookplate Designs for Dad

Just in time for Father's Day, I've added two new bookplate designs to the shop: Black Tree (above) and Sky Gazer (below). Both of these have been in a state of semi-finished for some time now, so I'm happy to have them complete. I especially love the Sky Gazer image, it's adapted from a book from the early 1930's and reminds me of the now-defunct "Adventure Through Inner Space" ride at Disneyland. :)

Oh, and Father's Day is June 17th, so you have plenty of time.

Valentine's Day Cards - FREE with purchase!

I shared these Valentine's Day cards with my newsletter subscribers last week: they are FREE with  any purchase during January or February!

These designs were adapted from Valentine's Day cards that my Grandmother received as a young child in the 1920's - her birthday was Valentine's Day (and so was my other Grandmother's birthday, how crazy is that?) - so she had a huge collection of cards covered in hearts. These were some of my favorites from the batch.

They come as a PDF download that you can print on a home printer or send to a printshop - good for years to come, print as many as you like! They are also cute used as gift tags: I used a small hole punch and used baker's twine on a few of these and they look adorable.

A Couple of New Prints!

I am so in love with this new Vintage Peony print that I just might have to make one for myself! It was adapted from an illustration made in 1867, and funny enough, I'm reading Ron Chernow's Grant book, -- which is wonderful and I highly recommend -- and just realized this illustration was made during the time I'm reading about. Kind of bends the mind!

It's such a pretty print and would be at home in a nursery, office, or studio.

And I've also created a print of our adorable Forest Friends image. This was adapted from a beautiful and very large version of Aesop's fables printed in 1919, and it is the sweetest image, isn't it? And there are matching bookplates here.

New Library Gift Sets for the New Year!

Happy New Years, friends!

I have some new treasures in the shop: four sweet Library Gift sets featuring vintage books from the 40's and 50's. The Hymn book is especially gorgeous. These are so precious, and the perfect gift for a young reader or the vintage enthusiast in your life!
