Tonight in the town where I work it was Ladies Night, so the stores were open late. Jane and I zipped over to the antique shop. It was a slight bust except for this picture!!!!!! This is one of the most unique wedding pictures I have seen. (Click on this picture to see it up close!!!!!)
Over the past few weeks I have been going insane with ephemera collecting. Here are some of the things I have recently acquired. Above is a darling card, and so a new category is born, greeting cards from the 1940's through 1970's with cute children images!
There there was the above, a whole deck of playing cards with little Miss Apple on them!!! Isn't she just a dear?
I am usually not one for little baby stuff, but this was too cute to pass up!!! (Karen I am saving one for you. I got a pack of these!)
All of sudden today, the need for vintage Christmas ephemera has struck!!!! Above is a darling card we found tonight. Now, I am on the hunt for more kids Christmas cards and vintage Christmas wrapping paper. What a fun hunt.
You know what I really want to do tomorrow???? Drive around Indiana and go to lots of antique shops!!!! Alas, I will be going to work.....hopefully this weekend I will start using some of this ephemera in some sort of artistic expression. Stay tuned.
Lastly, is anyone else in the same boat with me? You know, the boat where you could look at this kind of stuff all day, dream about, plan trips to antique shops, and just generally go insane for this?? Please tell me I am not the only one!
