Announcement ⊱ A collection of haunting antique studio portraits, focusing on the curious, or the silently beautiful, and mixed with the unintentionally artistic vernacular photography of 19th century America. And, occasionally, I upcycle these lovelies into shadow box art or greeting cards.

So Far Apart, Resting in the Palm of my Hands
I am a child of the 1970′s picking ideals from the 1870′s like a little girl picking flowers in a field. I am searching for things nearly lost over time, old fashioned oddities such as honor, valor, modesty, and femininity.
Perhaps these ideals are sealed in the faces of the past, and now I can only hold them in my hand. So perhaps I am not so much collecting antique photos, but the mystery of who they were, and who I hope to be.
The Hero and the Damsel began with one simple collecting standard. The picture must haunt me. If the old photo lingers long in my mind after I put it down, it is worthy of my collection.
Around the web
I'm a happy wife and mother of four. My husband can testify I'm a terrible decorator because I like periwinkle far too much. However, I am proud to be the inventor of perfect coffee. Just add whipping cream & pure sugar to taste; perfect every time.

Credit card, Paypal, Etsy gift cards, and personal checks are accepted. If paying by check, shipment will be delayed until the check clears.

If you would like to reserve an item, please convo me. Please keep in mind that a reservation is a commitment to purchase. A non-refundable deposit may be required for holds.
All items are shipped within 1-2 business days. Your photo or print will go into a plastic sleeve, braced on a sturdy backing, then inserted into a sturdy flat mailer.

I use either USPS First Class or Priority, depending on weight. Insurance and tracking are included.
Most items will be shipped via USPS First Class international mail. Tracking is included. When insurance is available, it is also included. I cannot be not responsible for items lost or damaged in transit. Please allow at least 2 to 3 weeks for arrival; sometimes First Class international shipments can take a month before arriving. International buyers are responsible for paying any customs fees imposed.
