People ask about the name Fairy Freckles. When our designer was a child, her mother would take her along on fanciful flights of imagination. As a child she believed that all the flower petals were actually painted by tiny fairies; bumblebees were flying teddy bears and mushrooms were parasols for mice. When mom and 'little artist to be' were covered in glue and glitter while bringing one of their imaginings to life, bohemian mom would always tell little kid artist that the tiny sparkles of light left on their faces and hands were not glitter, but were in fact, Fairy Freckles; proof positive that on that day, they romped with the fairies.

"Just had to write and say, you are amazing! Thanks for the time and attention you gave my custom (decal) order. My bedroom furniture looks stunning. I think I like the headboard on my bed the most. No, I like the way the chest of drawers looks the best. I love them all so much, I just can't choose. One of my friends wants to buy my bed because she thinks it looks so romantic! I can't wait to do other rooms in my "shabby cottage" with your great designs. And I didn't expect it would be easy to do, but it was so easy just like you said. I love the results." -- Mrs. L. Johnson, Ohio- April. 2006
"I wanted to let you know I received the lovely, lovely items today. You certainly packed them up extremely well! How wonderful to be able to see these pieces in person! Even though your pictures on your website are very good, the pictures do not do justice to the loveliness of the products!" -- Ms. S. Gilson, Wisconsin - Jan. 2006
"I really love the little design details on every piece I have purchased. I have given one of your clocks or plaques for almost every gift occasion and every time the response is the same - how lovely and they haven't got anything like it and where did I get it! And people always say they like that the clocks can go on their desks or a shelf because a lot of my friends keep them at work, so that's a great feature about them. Thank you for making me so proud to give these as gifts." -- Ms. K. Westmore, Texas - December, 2005
"I must tell you how far superior your decals are to others I have purchased from other sellers. The clarity and color of the images is just the best I have seen and they are more workable than any others I have tried. I won't buy anywhere else again! Thanks because my project turned out great." -- (Name and state withheld by request) - October, 2005
"I bought 2 plaques from you to give as gifts, but when I got them, I liked them so much, I kept them. Then, I bought another one to use as a door prize for my club, but ended up keeping that one too! I love 'em, love 'em. But, this has got to stop!" -- Ms. S. Parker, Georgia - August, 2005
"I want you to know that I gave one of your clocks to my sister and brother in-law for their anniversary and it was the one thing they received that they seemed to truly love! And it was so great of you to add their names on the face. I feel like I found my own private, special place to buy the best gifts ever. Thanks." -- Mrs. R. Harkins, California - June, 2005
We love to hear from you.

Many of our designs recall vintage Victorian style illustrations and graphics; some reflect the simpler designs of the 1920s and 30s, while others, find their place squarely in the 1940s and 50s. All reflect a respect for timeless, classic design elements. So travel back with us to these past eras, unrivaled for their fashions, intricate designs, delicate details and elaborate rituals.
The Victorian era, from about 1840 to 1900, the gilded age that reshaped everyday life. From architecture to courtship, social custom and behavior, nearly every aspect of society life was layered with romance and elegance.
The twenties and thirties were rich in a style all their own. The great industrialists made and lost fortunes overnite. From carefree flappers to the great depression, the art style of these decades remains as fresh and appealing today as it was then.
The fabulous forties and fifties had it all when it came to fashion, form and fun. The turmoil of war, the musical escape of the big bands, of swing, jazz and eventually rock & roll; the modern atomic age had arrived and it was reflected in art, advertising - each detail of life for a generation of baby boomers and beyond.
As you browse our pages, we hope you find just the right touch of nostalgic, artful whimsy to add to your own decor.
