I'm so excited to let you in on a little secret.....
My new Etsy shop OhDearViolet is opening this week.
It will feature whimsical and lovely treasures from the turn of the century.
Early and Late Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau and Deco-- La Belle Epoque!
Above is a sampling of items from the shop.
I'll be posting a few more sneak peeks over the next few days so stay tuned!


  1. What a darling photograph book. When I was growing up my parents had a little rocking chair just like the one above, only with burgandy colored velvet. I've often wondered what happened to it.

  2. Hi Alice-- isn't it lovely how a single object can bring us right back to another time and place and connect us to those we love? Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comment. So glad you enjoyed the post!
