"Mom in Lion Cage" Collage Designs

From my Unfortu-Notes© series of collages, in which very strange things happen to presumably good people ... here is "Mother Will Write Soon".

I think I would have enjoyed meeting the woman who sent this postcard to her kids in 1908, scrawling "Mother will write soon" across the bottom. Were the children scarred for life?

I love this peculiar postcard, so I gussied it up with some paint and red thread stitches and multicolored glitter (the digital kind, not the kind that flies off and gets all over your house), and then it needed some dried rose petals, to match the posies the woman carried into the lion's cage. (Why, o why?)

"Mom in Lion Cage" Available As:

Folded Note cards, A2, 5-1/2 x 4-1/4. Set of 5 with matching envelopes, $5.95. The inside of the note cards are blank, so that you may compose your own distressing messages. Professionally printed on heavyweight white stock with archival inks, glossy finish. (MWS-01)


Postcards, 5-1/2 x 4-1/4. Set of 10, $5.95. Professionally printed on heavyweight smooth white cardstock, glossy finish, using permanent archival inks. (MWS-03)

NEW! Tee Shirt, $14.95. The rosy-pink shirt is super-soft, pre-washed 100% pima cotton, female-styled with a slightly scooped neck and flattering shorter sleeves. (It is NOT skin-tight, nor is it see-through!) I applied my collage image with a thermal press, scalloping the edges for interest.

The end result is an easy care, comfortable tee shirt: machine wash & tumble dry. I have this shirt available immediately in a women's size Large. (MWS-06)

Email me (Margaret at for other sizes, colors and cuts.


Gift / Fiber Care Tags, 3 x 3. Set of 8, $3.95. Printed on heavyweight white stock with pigmented inks, deckle edged, matte finish with UV-protective matte glaze. When ordering, please specify whether you want Fiber Care Tags or Gift To:/From: Tags. (MWS-04)

About My Art

My designs are based on and/or inspired by my crazy huge collection of vintage photographs, vernacular snapshots and antique postcards. Stay tuned for more ... I dream up new ones constantly ... and I'm happy to create custom designs just for you, too.

Forms of Payment

I've had really good luck with PayPal, and I think you'll like it, too. Using PayPal, you can pay using checks or credit cards -- and never need to give me your personal financial info. Plus, you get buyer protection up to $2,000. What more could you ask?

For my international buyers (outside the U.S.), I've added Moneybookers payment. It's similar to PayPal, but easier for international customers to use.

Shipping & Returns

I normally ship using the U.S. Postal Service, via First Class or Priority, your choice. However, if you prefer another service, such as UPS, DHL or FedEx, just let me know.

Yes, I ship internationally -- anywhere in the world. (If you live in Italy, I will add a nominal fee for shipping insurance due to the regrettable number of packages lost there.)

I am very proud of my sterling customer service record selling on Amazon (see feedback) and eBay (see feedback) for the past three years; and my newest Etsy store (see feedback). My return policy is simple: if you're not happy, then I'm not happy. If for any reason my item turns out not to be what you wanted, simply return it to me for a prompt & cheerful refund.


Just email me. I'm happy to answer your questions promptly. And I can gift-wrap or customize any design, just for you. So drop me a line!
