Vintage Ephemera

Vintage Ephemera - It could very well be a diagnosis. It sounds a bit like a medical term, doesn't it?! It can sure take over my house like an illness =)

This Show & Tell might be a little like hanging out my paperie laundry! I've posted before about my bizarre affinity for paper and since I'm still unpacking from vacation, I'm just going to share a few things that are currently out on my dinning room table (and it's a good excuse to not show you the business end of my ephemera mess)...

Love those old gals!

Sheet music is difficult to sew with! Huh - who knew?!

Any other homeschool moms starting to hunt and gather for the Fall?

Here's a little something I came across - New Ideas for Your Vintage Ephemera ('cause I don't have enough hair-brained ephemera ideas-lol!)

My latest hair-brained ephemera project (scroll down one post).

This is one of my favorite vintage ephemera pieces. Mom's old Bible - with her handwritten notes. I've been focused this week on a verse in Psalms 139 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Is there anything more endearing than knowing He is both behind us and ahead of us?! He's given us the only scrapbook ephemera that has always been fade resistant... His word will endure forever.

Big, big thanks to Little Pink Studio for hosting our Show & Tell Sunday this week!!
Sunday Note: Because the Bible says that honoring the Sabbath is sign of the covenant between God and us - forever, I take Sundays as a day of rest. To honor Him, my Sunday posts are prepared the day before and any questions or orders that come through on Sundays will be responded to on Monday. Thank you so much for visiting.
