Fairy Davis (born 1908) was a lovely young woman who lived in the West Frankfort area in southern Illinois. I met Fairy through the pages of her photo albums which I found in a flea market in Springfield, Mo several years ago. I fell in love instantly with the captured moments of her life and that of her family and friends.
In the years that I have owned Fairy's albums I have looked through the pages many times wondering about her life. Though I have found out a little about her through internet genealogy searches, much of her life is a mystery to me.
At FairyDavis and Friends we not only love vintage paper goods and photos, we celebrate them. We find delight and inspiration in them. The items you find in our boutique are high resolution digital copies of images from our own personal collections. Every item is truly a unique treasure that you won't likely find elsewhere.
Fairy's albums and photos have been a true treasure to me and a prized part of my personal vintage photo collection. It is with love for her memory that I offer her photos as well those of others to other papercraft artists so that her beauty may live on through other's art.
I hope you will visit Fairy and download her and her family and friends to use in your vintage art inspired projects! Stay tuned for some some images and projects from me in the near future. AND - the details for the give away of one copy of Art from the Heart will be posted either later today or tomorrow. I PROMISE!
