Watchman's Note

This is a journey to the best designs in the world of Handpicked and presented (along with my own artwork) by yours truly, the driving force behind Surreality designs. We'll discover great artists and special products -mostly with a taste for the eccentric. But let us not confine ourselves in specific genres: the possibilities are endless and so is the great art one can find at Zazzle.


Christmas victoriana

The Victorian era loved depicting kids. Mostly rich kids or fictional kids, since these times are notorious for  children labor in factories and mines (the dark side of the Industrial Revolution), and the portrayed innocence of children was not to be found on everyday life.
This vintage Christmas card is charming in it's vintage look, like having a piece of history in your hands. On the other hand, the kissing children covered in plush foliage cary a certain paganistic weirdness that I find irresistible. A unique find from the Golden Oldies shop, a real treasure cove for retro stuff!
