Announcement   Vintage Inspired Jewelry, Note Cards and Market Tote Bags by Melinda Downing.

I'm inspired by travel to far away places. I love to search for vintage books and illustrations. I especially love natural history prints to integrate into my art.

I design and hand create all the work using my own photographic images and scans of images from my vintage collection. I'm a Virgo who's a little nutty about detail.... so you can count on each piece being crafted with careful, loving attention.

For original antique prints from as far back as the 17th century please visit:

I love these thank you cards so much that I had to come back and order a set of 50. They're not for a wedding, but I needed a bunch because I love sending these for every little thank you I can think of.

About

Hello and welcome.

here is a little story about me...

It was my birthday but I was very sad. I was ready to sell my 6 acres of land in the Sierra National Forest. My dream to dig a well and build a cabin had not come to be. But then, over blackberry pie, my retired truck driver uncle and I decided to build a one room cabin, on our own, using mostly recycled materials. Who needs running water and electricity anyway?

Now I am very happy :) I didn't sell the land and I have a little 8x13, solar powered cabin. It feels like a castle, so I named my etsy shop CabinCastle. I go there often, to hike, read, rest, build things and to make some of the art that I sell here on Etsy.

When I'm not in the mountains, I'm teaching yoga, photographing or traveling. I have two beautiful children and a wonderful husband who loves to travel with me and gives me lots of alone time to work & play. I love 18th and 19th Century Europe and hope to someday spend a year living in France or Italy, roaming flea markets and museums.

I design and hand create all the work using my own photographic images and scans of images from my vintage collection. I'm a Virgo who's a little nutty about detail.... so you can count on each piece being crafted with careful, loving attention.

    I'm inspired by things that are worn and weathered, by travel to Paris, London, Rome or any European city. My favorite place in the world is my tiny cabin in the woods.
