Well, not really. However, during one of my Etsy hunts, I found pages of a book called "The Art of Baking" published sometime in the 1890`s and well out of copyright. I purchased most of the pages intending to make something cool out of it.

I do know many show producers and show scouts scour Etsy seeking inspiration and talent. Now I am certain of that, unless they own the book!

I have always loved her designs, and I really don`t know a designer that looks to the past to create a design today. I just find it funny.
