Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 76

Welcome to the Pacific Postcards Team Meet and Greet.  We have a great team that had start simply as an Etsy Team but has branched out into Artfire, G+FacebookTwitter and Pinterest.  We would love for you to join are team and help promote New Artistically designed or reproduced postcards, collecting vintage and antique postcards, creating digital art, and anything to do with ephemera and vintage imagery.

First I would like to introduce myself, Colleen (Captain) and Frances (Leader) of the team:

"First a brief little introduction: I grew up a Midwest farm girl from Wisconsin but through a series of moments of self discovery I have since moved to California and live the city life in the Palm Springs area.  I live in a lovely contemporary home where my husband and I have designed a small but very beautiful Japanese Garden.

Unfortunately, though, the contemporary look does not blend with my passion for vintage and antique Victorian froufrou.  So I have created for myself a virtual world with my shops.  I welcome you to my attic filled with all the treasures found and creations made especially for you..." ~Colleen Cornelius
"I create mixed media, collage, folk art, religious icons, jewelry with a twist, paintings & digital art. Frida Kahlo has long been my muse and some of my art is inspired by her colorful life and paintings. I also enjoy dressing up in costume for any occasion but especially for Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos celebrations and of course as Frida.

Hunting for treasures at flea markets, thrift stores and antique shops is also a favorite past time and I often incorporate these objects into my art..." ~Frances Perea



"Loves the quality in vintage!
A closet archaeologist!
I love the hunt, the research of the archaic treasures I your closet or theirs! Browse my shop often as I add at least 1 new item daily....aren't you glad?
Think vintage.... the ultimate in recycling!
...A bit of history about MAC is on my about page tab above!
"For a good time" find My Attic's Charms on my new Facebook page here: Behind the scenes of MAC, research articles on my items, shops that have impressed me, reviews of estate sales I've been to, ask for help and more!

"I am self employed & a home based business with a creative edge & a love for collecting vintage things." ~ Stevie 



"Antiques have been a part of my life since I was young. I have always been intrigued with History and have been lucky enough to enjoy that in my businesses. An Antique Store Back 'n Time Antiques in Bemidji MN. 

A transplant from Southern California I still have a great love of Retro and Mid-Century items. Although the greatest part of my interest lies in the Arts and Crafts movement and Early Americana. 

If you happen my way in the Summer our shop is always open except on a few weekends when I'm away at an Antiques show. 

If wintertime please call in advance so the heat can go on as well as the hot coffee. If your lucky to come in the fall there may even be fresh homemade apple pie. 

Thanks for looking into my shop, my interests!" ~Elaine



Retired Legal Assistant" ~Rosemary



"Inching my way closer to realizing that I must do more of what I love, I have decided to open an Etsy shop dedicated to all things paper and hope customers will love my items and support my passion. I'm surrounded in my scrap room or atelier as my husband calls it with my favorite things. I'm inspired by a beautiful view of woods with the afternoon sun filtering in on my space; such a luxurious haven for me. I enjoy the process of scrapbooking, from taking the photos to the measuring, cutting and gluing of paper and learning new techniques that make this multi-media craft so exciting. It is an extremely rewarding craft but most important is the preservation of those fleeting moments that make up one's life. 
Thank you for visiting my nest and supporting my work." ~ScrappyBird
