drop caps

Made off with an amazing trade last night: one green flower hair pin for a set of 1930's monogram transfers. Cannot wait to get my hands on these.

reminders to read more


From the Library of Congress collection of prints & posters (an archive that is not to be missed) comes this great old poster and a reminder that we should be making a dent in that stack of books by our bed. Still plenty of summer left to get through a couple good ones!

begin at the beginning

Today the Curious Fern opens its internet doors. As a lover of all things unique, strange, curious, wonderful and beautiful I spend a good deal of my time hunting down treasures. My store Fern's Curiosities is where I share some of these finds and creations. This blog is not one great advertisement for my store. It is a snapshot of my world and will boil down to discoveries and documentation, and a peek into the creative process.

It is partially for those interested in stumbling upon something new and wonderful, partially a way for me to keep track of the things I find and forget.

There is never a dull day for the curious Fern.
