There's nothing better than getting my hands a bit inky on a Sunday afternoon.

Vintage Inspired Paraphernalia

OrchidsHeart started through a dual love of literature and stationary, being a student of first English and American Literature, and then Comparative Literature, Ophelia initially made notebooks for herself that reflected her current subject of study and her unique aesthetic.

However when friends started asking for commissions she realized that she was not alone in wanting a piece of personalized art to record her (hopefully) genius thoughts— after all if it’s important enough to write down then it’s important enough to want to do it in style! Thus the core of OrchidsHeart grew.

Yet Ophelia has so much more to offer, thus OrchidsHeart has occasionally in the past listed other offerings such as her map bird garlands, and now is expanding to share with you even more of her private little world.

Everything for sale in OrchidsHeart is unique, with the notebooks/journals being custom made to order with whatever you desire— be it a tribute to Edgar Allan Poe, a memoir of your travels or a pocket book to carry with you at all times. The glass bottles are equally unique, each bottle retrieved from a place imbued with history and adorned with a photo Ophelia has taken on her frolickings. Simultaneously preserving history and memories, whilst creating an unusual piece of art for you to treasure.

Whether you have a question or simply just want to talk, OrchidsHeart is happy to hear from you.

“Beauty is a form of Genius” (Oscar Wilde).

Bonjour from OrchidsHeart!

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist” (Pablo Picasso).

Though I largely agree with Picasso, here, for the purpose of business I am afraid I do have a few.

Returns and exchanges
All sales are final, unless faulty (in which case please message me!). As all items on OrchidsHeart are unique and largely custom order only, they are therefore non-returnable. For ready made items, I will accept returns, but at your cost and they MUST be sent via recorded and insured delivery, as this is pricey I advise that you really look at the photos I have carefully taken and read ALL the info to ensure you know what you are buying. I am always happy to answer questions and send you more photos.
I accept most forms of payment but really prefer paypal. I will however not actively enforce this.

If you are ordering outside of the EU, customs and duties are your responsibility, not that of OrchidsHeart.
Where possible I do recycle exterior packaging, but never at the cost of the safety of your item, so if the possibility that your item may arrive in a padded envelope that is experiencing a second life is a problem for you, please let me know. Though please also be advised that inside this recycled packaging, your item will be lovingly wrapped and I am only trying to keep the best interest of the trees at heart.

An extra note for those of you outside the EU (especially USA), occasionally packages can take a longer time to reach you and I have no control over this so please be patient and it will arrive, I have never experienced a parcel to go missing. That being said, I am not responsible for missing post and if you require a more secure method of delivery let me know and I will sort this out with you.

Customs charges etc are at your own risk, though small orders tend not to be subjected to this.
Additional policies and FAQs
Turnaround time for custom order items are 1-2 weeks unless otherwise informed or during peak periods this may be longer. Ready to order items are shipped in 3-5 working days unless otherwise stated. Often things are made or shipped faster but I cannot promise this. Message me before if you are working on a deadline.

Imperfections are part of my art. In all of my creative endeavors imperfections occur, I love the little differences that give each item its personality, like people, they are all unique and a little rough around the edges. So only purchase from OrchidsHeart if you are like minded.
