EPHEMERAL COLLECTIONS

The siren call of vintage paper ephemera. Some things are hard to resist: vintage bus tickets, old stamps, colourful vintage airmail stickers, stunning seed packets, beauteous antique pharmacy labels, handwritten letters, artful receipts, meticulous ledger pages… what will become of these snippets of the past.

A recent find …40 beautiful old French pharmacy labels in delicate lilac colour or soothing green. LOVE!.

My new favorite collection of vintage airmail stickers and other postal delights…stamps and postmarks are very high up on my ADORE list.

And finally a rainbow of old French stamps gifted to me by a very supportive sister.

NB background papers: include some of my most favorite items…old maps, vintage receipts, old postcards and handwritten manuscripts….SWOON!

PS I love using the drop shadow effect in Photo Shop Elements…so cool.
