Unique Paperie Vintage Marketplace
Blue Thistle Studio is a place where a nostalgia for the past and a respect for nature unite to warm the heart and
nourish the soul...
Mary's photographic note cards draw their inspiration from the enchanting and ever-changing landscapes of the Berkshires and surrounding areas of the Northeast, often intersecting botanical subjects with vernacular and well-worn architectural details, be it the peeling paint of an old barn, a charming country cottage, or the weathered patina found in coastal New England.
Her line of handmade note cards showcasing beautifully patterned textiles and papers are a delight to the senses, and her birch bark cards speak to the nature lover in all of us. Mary's line of nostalgic greeting cards featuring vintage imagery evoke a love for the past that has been enlivened with modern-day touches.
Mary's handmade and vintage-inspired greeting cards can be purchased on Etsy under the shop name Blue Thistle Paperie, along with a selection of her photographic note cards. The complete portfolio of her photo cards can be found in the Photo Gallery on this website. Blue Thistle greeting cards of all types are sold at area craft fairs in and around the Berkshires.
