Miniature surprises for customers by Creativhook

  • Creativhook add miniature surprises for customers to each order, this is a Postcards with views of my favorite Sankt Peterburg.  At the beginning of my doll’s art, I was looking for something to please my clients.

I decided it should be a postcard overlooking our beautiful St. Petersburg. Sending postcards from different places of travel is a good tradition in many countries. Travelers buy a card, write it and send it to friends and family. A beautiful look and interesting brand will remind them in the future about the trip or tell about the city where the author lives.

The first card drawn was sent by Henry Cole back in 1843. He asked his friend the artist, John Calcotton Horse, to draw such a gift. Grandmother received an incredibly beautiful gift and was very pleased with it. Soon a new trend spread around the world.

I recently finished working on a new outfit for the Lady by Heidi Ott and I suggest you see how we choose postcards for new orders.

On the first postcard, we can see the “Bank Bridge” with golden griffins. Bank Bridge is one of the three surviving pedestrian chain bridges in St. Petersburg.

Beautiful views on postcards are many and can be viewed for a long time.

Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ on Blood, or Church of the Savior on Blood in St. Petersburg – an Orthodox monastery memorial temple in the name of the Resurrection of Christ, built-in memory of the fact that at this place on 1 (13) March 1881 as a result of an assassination attempt was fatally wounded Emperor Alexander II (the expression on the blood indicates the blood of the king). The temple was erected as a monument to the tsar-martyr on funds collected throughout Russia.

The next order will go with a postcard, which shows the Peter and Paul Fortress.

  Some history about 60s fashion.

  At the beginning of the 60s, there was a sharp change in traditions in fashion. The city of style and new trends was London with its rebellion, avant-garde, and youth. Luxury and tenderness have replaced minimalism and boldness. It became quite obvious that a young and active person should look different.

Fashion features of the ’60s

The fashion of the 60s gave a lot of non-standard and fresh ideas. Among designers and fashion designers, the term “youth fashion” appeared for the first time. Bright, juicy shades, lush skirts became relevant thanks to Brigitte Bardot, Twiggy, Catherine Deneuve. Their new images completely destroyed the old ones. New style icons appeared in the world community.

At that time, non-standard dresses in the style of the 60s, which destroyed many stereotypes. There was a length of mini, carrying a charge of light sexuality, and the sensuality was emphasized very skillfully.
