May I introduce to you the newest member of The Gossamer Tearoom Family? This is Victorienne! She is a magical little girl and sweeter than strawberries in July! She is my most recent digital collage project, made from vintage postcards and a vintage paper doll. But she will soon be making her debut in the material world as I am currently creating art dolls, silk art brooches, banners, as well as digital collage sheets with her image, wearing her extensive wardrobe of adorable rompers and soon, I will be debuting all of these items in two of my Etsy shops, The Gossamer Tearoom and Velvet Revived! Please check back later today as I will be debuting the first two digital collage sheets of images of our new little girl!
Victorienne is such a friendly little soul and she can't wait to meet you in person!
In my Etsy shop Velvet Revived, I have super exciting news! I have joined the Prototype Team for Instant Downloads of Digital Files! Why is this so exciting? It means that all of my digital collage sheets are now available for instant download! As soon as your payment is confirmed, you will receive an e-mail from Etsy with the links to the sheets you have purchased, usually within just a few minutes! So, with Easter only one week away, you still have plenty of time to order my Easter and Springtime sheets to make cards or decorations!
What could be better than finding what will work with your projects just perfectly and having it to use almost as soon as you order it? Thank you, Etsy, for making this wonderful new service available for sellers to use!
Hello Dear Friends,
This is my collage for The Three Muses Collage Challenge. The prompt this week is "Steampunk". This is my Post-Winter Floral Initiation Machine. Some places are seeing some signs of spring and even seeing some flowers blooming already. I'm impatient!! Here in Maine, we still have snow on the ground and I want flowers!!! So, I built this machine to get the flowers started up! I will put it in the garden and hope for the best!
Hello Dear Friends,
This is my collage for the collage challenge on Collage Obsessions. The subject this week is "Inspired by Fairy Tales and/or Children's Literature". I have chosen to depict the moment after Chicken Little was hit by the acorn and is just about to announce "The sky is falling!!!". What a silly! Please check out all the other interpretations of favorite children's stories here.

Welcome to The Gossamer Tearoom, a Tearoom of the Imagination...Please join me here to relax and enjoy fun discoveries I have made or new creations I am working on! I regularly host imaginary teas where I select teas and pastries that have enticed me. I'm interested in food, art, writing, selling vintage items. This is a place which celebrates my light side and my dark side too. A little bit of creepy has never hurt anyone!
Close your eyes and imagine yourself in an English garden by moonlight or a French tea salon under a wedding cake ceiling and opulent chandelier. This imaginary place is a quiet place of peace, of art, indulgence in teas of our own imaginings, of music, of light and of dark. Please enjoy your visit here!
