About

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.

    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.
