Original and Decorative Art ~ Wooden Boxes and Wedding Papers

Welcome! Please come in and browse. In the late 1800's school girls would decorate wood boxes with pen and ink and a soft wash of color. They did this as part of their graduation exercises. These boxes were then exchanged with friends. Most of their boxes were decorated with butterflies, fireflies, and the countryside in which they lived.I now enjoy this wonderful art technique myself.

I enjoy making boxes for special occasions such as weddings, engagements, and anniversaries.You can also find a variety of vintage style wedding papers and cards.

Please enjoy my shop. I really love what I do!

All items will be shipped within 3 days after payment is received.

If you have any questions, please contact me. Have fun shopping!!!
