It's November, which means that the Victoria Book & Paper Show is only four weeks away!
Our studio is filled with paper ephemera from France: handwritten letters, music and documents, vintage ledger pages, 1920s postcards, old school books, and antique playing cards.
We're gathering assemblage supplies as well: antique optometrist lenses, German bisque dolly arms and legs, French pharmacy boxes, Victorian baby shoes, game pieces, and other treasures.
We hope to see you on the 29th!
