Recently I have been the happy beneficiary of some delightful ephemera.
The first package came from my Parisian friend Jerry, who managed to find a terrific vintage scrapbook filled with images that dated back to Victorian times, as well as those in the early 20th century.
Even the cover of the book was fabulous.
Inside was page after page of images, carefully cut and glued onto the page.
(Yes, I know. Sad. Hard to peel off!)
Jerry had taken dental floss to a number of the images to remove them safely from the page. Others, perhaps, will be there forever.
While these aren't the only thing in that marvelous care package, I have to admit they all made me smile.
So many of you are so generous in sharing ephemera, tutorials and other ideas,
I wanted to share these with you.
Just click on the image and right click to save.
It's hard to pick a favorite -- although I loved this little guy!
And since pansies are a favorite, this, too, caught my eye.
And of course, little vintage children!
(I'll have another post sometime soon with another ephemera bonus -- this from an estate sale here in town.
There were lots of vintage holiday images there and I'll post it in plenty of time for the holidays!)
