I was pleased the other week to
find a good selection of ephemera .
I thought i had hit the jackpot - all of which were
from the same stall holder i frequent . My
searches are becoming less frequent to purchase
these items - they are either not available or
are " collectors " items which have a high
price tag - and if you are cutting into them ,
you don`t want to pay over the odds .
I snapped up these without any hesitation !
Bird postcards ...
The left one is a French one - addressed to
a Mademoiselle Marguerite
I think it was from the same household - as the names
of who they were from - are the same .
I feel lucky to have these - i have wanted to find
such cards for a long time . It will be hard to actually use
these in a creative way - just look at them , and admire the
graphics . They certainly do not make them like these today !
Or don`t you just wish - you could go back in time -
and do a really big shop and buy so many ! ?? I do .
This is a programme - with the events of that
evening printed inside - and i love her dress !
very Marie Antoinette !!
And i have still being busy with the jewellery makes ..
An altered kilt pin -with found pieces of jewellery .
alcohol inks on the moon crescent and long
And a start on a bamboo tile ..
