Harry Payne (1858-1927) was a British artist who was known for his military paintings, but he also did a lot of pastoral, cottagecore kind of paintings. Perfect for postcards! Here are a few Autumnish images:

I found these while researching for a storyline, and thought I'd share them here. They're free to use, but have a not-for-sale copyright restriction. (Not my rules, but the rules of the digital resource). So I won't be incorporating them into a digi-kit, but the graphic was too beautiful not to share:
"Funeral letters?" Here's information from The Victorian Web about condolence letters, as well as the kind of stationary that Victorians in mourning would have used. Here is an article from Dusty Old Thing including mourning cards, kind of like funeral tickets to get into a family funeral.This poem captures the 19th century, don't you think? Blacksmiths, chimney-sweepers, and bookbinders. :-) Also, midwives were refreshingly normal back then.

I've been doing some children's literature research for Fernie's World. I was going to give a spoiler alert about Fernie's future husband, but I will just be hint-ish about him:

Apart from my "Blair Witch Project" hands, this is a quick flip-through of a journal I made almost 2 years ago. I'm just getting around to getting this video posted and the printable kit listed in the Ledger & Lace Etsy shop.

As a pathological writer in any book I'm reading, I very much appreciate reading other people's comments. I especially love this one:
No other book except the Bible, has made one feel so strong as this Life of Charlotte Bronte.
The 'portrait' on the other page is so hideous, that I have cut it out.

One of my summer projects has been helping my sister Ruthie in the A&P (Anatomy & Physiology) lab at the local university. Here are a few shots of the lab:
After I finished the boxes, and Ruthie had repaired all the real bones, I painted them with 3 coats of paint.And here we are, boxes all together with bones, ready to put back in the cabinet:
You'll also note I'm doing "hover hands" over the should of the (plastic) skeleton. Also, those are Theraspec migraine glasses I'm wearing; protection against fluorescent lighting, which is like kryptonite to my brain.
The only thing we didn't get done was to put colour-coordinated paint on each bone, so that a blue-dotted bone doesn't end up in the nuclear yellow box, etc. We're also going to add bony landmarks, insertions and origins, etc. But that can be done in Part 86 of this process. For now, we are done and done!
