This necklace will be a perfect gift for my best friend:-) Nancy could not have been nicer to do business with. And The ReimaginedPast is quaint with a load of vintage charm. I will definitely be returning for more holiday shopping. I love the meaning of the anchor as my bestie will be a steadfast fixture in my life! Thanks again Nancy for a perfect gift idea!

Very cute!! My brother is a huge fan of Louis Wain, and this certainly is something that he will enjoy. Thank you for the great service!

About

My mother before me

After my mother passed away, I found her scrapbooks that she made in high school and college. The mid-late 1930's.

I think she saved every greeting card she ever received her entire life, but the ones that really caught my eye were the ones in her scrapbooks.

I really came to love the art deco ones, and thought it would be fun to update them - "energize" them.

It's been a lot of fun working on these cards. I try to inject as much whimsy into them as I can, but many times I find the slightest touches of glitter (right on, Martha Stewart!) are a perfect accent.

I miss the older style of cards. I really miss receiving cards in the mail and am not fond of e-cards.

Receiving greeting cards in the mail makes me feel really special...

Welcome to the Reimagined Past. All the greeting cards I sell are scanned from postcards or greeting cards I have collected over the years. Many of them come from my mother's scrapbooks dating from the late 1930's when she was at the College of William and Mary.

Each has been personally embellished with a variety of materials...whatever strikes me at the moment.

I hope you'll find them fun!
