Guest Giveaway: Jane Austen Print

To begin the Historical Costume Inspiration Festival, here is our first giveaway:

I have long been an admirer of the lovely artwork to be found in the Etsy shop    Oh Kirby.
Each piece is so peaceful and serene. I love how the simple compositions tell such deep stories.



Historical costume enthusisasts and 19th literature lovers will definatley find inspiration in Kirby's artwork! I love the attention given to historical fashion sillhouettes and detail. Her lovely ladies look so quiet and mysterious - that I am sure they must have some very intriguing secrets!
She even offers custom portraits! What a wonderful idea for a special event such as a wedding!
Do go over and visit her lovely shop or blog to see more!


The Blackbird                                                 Lysette

I love all her stuff... but "The Governess" is one of my top favorites. It reminds me of Jane Eyre.
