Niagara Apothecary

On the main street of Niagara-on-the-Lake museums can be found forming an integral part of the streetscape.
The Niagara Apothecary was one of my favourites. It building and interiors were not only all original, but much of the medicines and powders could be seen in their original bottles and papers. I was fascinated by what I saw and before I knew it two hours had flown by.
None of my pictures turned out well in the little shop so I bought this great postcard to scrap for my album.
I wanted to keep the Victorian feel so embellished with things that were so popular during the period. Things like a birdcage and butterflies fit in perfectly. I added a little brown ink for aging. I came away very pleased with my layout.
The inspiration for my layout is from the May 15th Stuck?! sketch designed by Laura Whitker. When I saw the sketch I immediately visualized my treasured postcard surrounded by a variety of pastel patterned papers. Thanks Laura for such a great sketch.
There's a new sketch at Stuck?! on the 1st and 15th of each month.
