I love exploring the fashions, literature, movies, art and design aesthetics from the mid & late 19th century thru the mid 20th century. My favorite heroine of all time is Anne of Green Gables. My favorite hobbies are sewing, knitting & cooking, and I have curated a large collection of vintage sewing patterns & 19th century cook books & home-economics books.

My varied interests & hobbies include Physics, Cosmology, Astronomy, Mathematics, Science Fiction, Dr. Who, Barefoot Running, Russian Literature & Language, Eastern Orthodox Christianity and Organic & Sustainable Farming.

I am also a shop-owner here at Etsy. Opening my two shops was a natural extension of my love for all things vintage and sewing: please take a look!
