The Sidecar

Here's my design to be used on a tea towel, The Sidecar, as in the popular 1920s cocktail, up for voting in Spoonflower's Prohibition Cocktail Challenge. Are those eyes peeking out of a secret speakeasy door, or eyes of the authorities? Is that a Sidecar cocktail, or just part of the Art Deco design? Hmm...watch out, bootleggers!

The Black Sea

This Replogle Starlight Globe from the 1950s is stunning!
The colourful countries and typography stand out against the slightly crackled black water so nicely.

Church Street School

This turn-of-the-century photo was taken in a school in Almonte, Ontario. Oh the smirks and blank stares.

Wooden Shoe Forms

I had a "shoe day" at an antique show a little while ago, picking up these 6 forms after previously deciding I wanted to find some for display purposes. When it rains, it pours! The tiny ones are a rare find.
This little shoe is 92!
