The bouquets Liz did for my wedding are gorgeous! They are perfect. I would recommend Homonymic for any paper flower project. Mine was a custom order, and on a short time line and I received excellent customer service and my items came quickly and in excellent condition!!! Thank you for making my wedding special!!!!

As Death Cab for Cutie says, "she may be young, but she only likes old things.."

I find peace through art. This shop is my creative outlet, and I so love creating! I also love the written word; it's an imagery like none other.

My husband and I got married in 2012, and we were on a very tight budget. I looked and looked for floral arrangements that were "us," and I just couldn't find any. Our favorite activity to do together was to find hole-in-the-wall places that had character-- this often led us to antique shops.

After some experimenting, I discovered that I could make gorgeous flowers out of vintage paper. This was perfect, because although my love of the elderly is a huge part of me, a lot of overwhelming flower scents bother me, because of the many funerals I've attended because of my work. But I LOVE the smell of old books!!

This was the perfect solution to my flower dilemma, and after its success, I decided to turn it into a business, if I could.

From there I've moved on to stationary, ornaments, centerpieces, wreathes, etc. I simply love it!

    I am a lover of anything old! I grew up with my grandmother always nearby and eventually went on to work in nursing homes, retirement homes and rehab hospitals. I treasure sentiment, so I've created a shop that encompasses just that!

Hi! I'm Liz, the founder of Homonymic. I love books, vintage, lace, and other pretty things, so I decided to start making bouquets out of antique books that I've found here and there. I started off making these for my wedding, and everyone loved them! So, I decided to start making them for other people. I hope you enjoy!
