Ephemera::

I have a deep fondness for ephemera. Whether it be labels, sheet music, letters, recipe cards, calling cards, post cards, old ledgers. Well, just about anything that says interesting graphic details from another era in time. Aren't they just fun to look at? I usually use some for wrapping paper and collage. Do you have any other suggestions for the use of ephemera? This would be a great week to get started on a new project. The weather forecast calls for rain, rain and more you got it. Try to have a good week anyway. I'm waiting now, on Pay pal to open my shop. It won't be long......

I love such pretty ephemera too. Mostly I use them for collages and gift wrapping as well but I could imagine that such a beautiful front page would look lovely when hanging framed on a wall.
Hugs,

I used lots and lots of sheet music to give interest to the old doors I lined my booth with. Then if something sells it doesn't look too empty!

You have a wonderful collection!
