I just completed a few sets of ACEO's.

Now, while I don't think of myself as being a terribly romantic person, once in a blue moon I'll dream of a handsome stranger who will say something so lovely that my heart does a little flip... so I guess there must be something rather gooey deep down inside of me.

These ACEO's are inspired by these visitations. It seems fitting to use images from from my vintage photo collection as my dream men are always rather more tender and courtly rather than slick and sexy. It's nothing overtly romantic just a certain thoughtful tenderness. The phrases were clipped from discarded books and put together to say sentimental things. I scanned the original clippings so that the quality of the printed page and aged paper was retained.

Each set includes 7-9 handmade cards.

Aw, those are so sweet, although I doubt I'd date that fella in the middle. Cheesy
