An Amaryllis that needs no water.

amaryllis 3

Amaryllis, a native South African plant, Latin amarysso meaning “to sparkle. What a perfect meaning for this time of year. I love these plants, every year I search for a new, variety to bloom in my house.

Over the years I have collected 19th century botanicals  of these amazing plants, the detail in the drawings is what I love the most about them.  In the day with no cameras, the fine detail all done with the naked eye.

I have put some of the prints on Tissue Boxes and Matches, they make a wonderful  presents, with absolutely no care they will bloom for years.

Good Witches or Bad Witches

Recently I went on a hunting trip for vintage images.  Not that I need more, but you can never have enough.

I stumbled upon a postcard album from the early 1900′s, that came from upstate New York.  As I turned the pages this wonderful original water color appeared.  I fell in love with it.  For all the years of collecting I never found such a wonderful Halloween image.  Not signed, I wonder who the artist was.

Perfect for Shandell’s matches.  What a fabulous way to light your Halloween night.

Indie Love

Indie Love is a pre-holiday market for all to enjoy. Shandell’s virtual table has our newest addition for the holiday’s, a Dove ornament made from vintage wallpaper and 19th century glass glitter. For years I have keep all of my rolls of vintage ceiling papers and have finally found a great use for them. Doves, make a perfect platform for their tone on tone patterns, the patterns look like feathers. You will also find tissue boxes and matches with fun vintage images great for any room in the house. Shandell’s Star ornaments made with vintage wallpaper are still as popular as ever. More to come in the next couple of weeks.

If you happen to live in the north east of the USA, you are enjoying as I am the unbelievable change of color at the moment. The colors this year are breathtaking.
