Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 79

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



"Trinkets and Treasures From Around the Globe"
~ Chrystina

"I have been doing artwork since I was 6-7 years old. I learned a lot from my grandmother and mom, who are also amazing artists and gave me so much inspiration. I started teaching ceramic classes when I was 10 (it was my mom's business) and sold my finished pottery pieces at craft shows. Art has been in my blood since I can remember and felt as natural to me as the steps I take to walk to get to where ever it is I am going. Currently, I teach mixed media classes and recently started dabbling in digital art. I am addicted to Photoshop and love the endless possibilities that go with it. I also own and operate Borne Cosmetics and sell my cosmetics here on Etsy. I could not give up on one for the other. My art and cosmetics are my passion and without one of them, well I would not be me. I am living out my dream and feel so blessed that I can share my work with people from all over." ~Jennifer

Welcome to the Pacific Postcards Team

"My first Christmas, I was given a metal bank of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (since it was both of our "debuts"). That bank sat on my dresser while I was growing up and held every precious penny I could save. Then about 20 yrs. ago, my sister gave me another Rudolph collectible and now my guest room is called "The Rudolph Room". So, of course, I "had" to go to auctions, flea markets, and tons of antique stores to hunt for deer Rudolph. I became addicted to antiques and now have a houseful! Since I can't keep everything that I find, I am offering them to you for your enjoyment." ~Anita



"Vintage, Sterling, handmade jewelry, China, figurines, tie clips, cuff links, rare books, vintage glass, vintage collectibles, and other rare and unusual items.

My passion is vintage, the ultimate recycling!! I love all things vintage and I believe that the ultimate recycling is to buy vintage, either to use it as is, or to up cycle into something new. Beautiful antique and vintage jewelry, old vintage jewelry made into something new, beautiful new designs, and new and vintage beads are what I search down and sell. I love going to Estate sales to hunt down treasures to offer. I make and sell beautiful jewelry and other craft items with love to enrich your life, seek out beautiful antique and vintage jewelry and collectibles,and yes I get my "high" off finding and offering great deals. I hope you find something you LOVE, <3 data-blogger-escaped-.="" data-blogger-escaped-br="">
I am a single mom of two lovely teenage girls, so not only are you buying great jewelry and vintage items at great prices but you are also helping me to raise my two great daughters!" ~Ginger
