On a personal note, I've loved flowers ever since I was a little girl, planting seeds my Mother gave me just about anywhere I could find an available patch of dirt. I've grown just about any flower my gardens could accommodate, from old rugosa roses to tall stands of huge bearded iris, giant zinnias, and dinnerplate dahlias. I was drawn to old rose paintings and vintage prints by what I call "curb appeal", and began my lifetime love of antique hunting in my early teens.
Forty years later, because of my acquired love of fine art, I published the book "The Life & Art of Paul de Longpre", based on the works of the highly acclaimed French Victorian watercolor artist. I have written articles and have been published several times in the American Art Review, RosaMundi, and the Fan Association of North America, as well as being interviewed on Ruby Lane's Blog Talk Radio. My 30-year collection is simply overflowing with treasures.
We list wonderful and unique Victorian books from our personal collection--they include Victorian Etiquette, Decorum, Language & Poetry of Flowers, Medical Quack, and old cookbooks, some of which include entertaining ideas on Victorian courting, fashion, and sex! Our shop specializes in books that are in gift and library-worthy condition.
I travel (always looking for antiques!), and enjoy fly fishing here in the Pacific Northwest. I am a Certified Graphoanalyst (handwriting expert), and am a member of American MENSA.
We do have 2 other sites for reproduction prints of Victorian rose yard long prints, as well as other roses and florals, and cupids! Just click on the "Favorite Links" on the left hand side of this page and it will take you to each of our sites.
