Love Tokens 2017



Thank you for visiting and viewing my Love Token 2017 Collection! Although I had planned to offer Cobweb Valentines and Puzzle Purse Valentines, they will not make it in time for Valentine's Day this year. Perhaps when I get them finished, you may want one for the love of your life, a dear friend, an anniversary, or some other very special occasion.


For now, I'd like to share with you my 2017 valentine collection:

These one-of-a-kind pieces are inspired by valentines of the 18th and 19th centuries. All have been made from parchment papers that I have stained, aged, painted with watercolors, and/or printed with copies of 18th century indentured servant letters. The embossed, foil papers are from my vintage & antique card and envelope collection. A few pieces incorporate snippets of old letters or envelopes. I have hand-cut each piece so no two are alike.
Each token of love is displayed in
antique velvet frames...
or antique, embossed photo mats... 
or on vintage stamped postcards.


Order information:
Please email me with any questions or with your order list.
I will answer questions as soon as possible.
I will send invoices via PayPal (credit cards may be used).
I will mark items sold or pending as orders come to me. 

Shipping:
$6 flat fee in the U.S. no matter how many you order.
Outside the U.S. please email me for a shipping quote.
Please note: The postcard love tokens will ship at a cheaper 1st class rate if no other types (with frames or mats) are purchased.
