About

Daydreaming is anything but a waste of time

Wanda started creating art at a very young age. Her special talents are in drawing and painting, textiles, 3-d design, poetry and baking. A seasoned seamstress, she has always felt that sewing is actually engineering with textiles but without the high salary. Wanda strongly believes in Daydreaming. Many of her business and creative ideas are the result of a lifetime of staring out the windows of a humdrum classroom and envisioning how things could be.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Magazine advertisements printed on paper in the 1900s are now reaching fifty years of age and older. They naturally lose their moisture and tend to tear and bend easily. They usually bear bump marks, staple holes, torn edges, a rough edge where it was attached to the spine of the magazine, creases and wrinkles. Handle with care and protect in an acid free polypropylene sleeve or behind glass. Keep away from sunlight to prevent fading. Ironing with steam will not take out the wrinkles or creases.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Paper advertisements and botanical prints are mailed in archival plastic sleeves. If you would like them sent as gifts, I will cover the sleeves with decorative paper after inserting with cardboard for support, and tie with a simple bow. Then ship in a rigid mailer. If you wish, a simple card will be enclosed with a message you provide. Just let me know what you want in your request.

Custom and personalized orders

All advertisement and botanical prints come from books and magazines with the borders, staple holes and rough edges untrimmed. If you wish, you may request that they be trimmed off to size. Just let me know what you need.

Sizing details

Ads from fashion magazines in this shop are 12.25 inches high x 9.5 inches wide; if attached, as in a two page centerfold, dimensions are 12.25 in high x 19 in wide. They are quite thin except for cover pages, which are about 24 lb.

Botanical plates are on quality paper with a sheen; sheet dimensions (untrimmed) are 10-1/2" x 13" (26.6 cm x 33 cm). Some contain artwork that cover the entire page whereas some artwork are encased in a central area measuring 9.5 x 7.75 inches (24 cm x 19.6 cm)--you can identify these as ones with plant names written on the lower half of the page.

Wholesale availability

If you would like any image duplicated and sold in bulk, please direct your inquiry through email and I will respond. Fees/prices depend on the amount of digital manipulating required to get the final product to a satisfactory state and the duplicating rates charged locally.
