Ephemera - Get it for FREE
I just love ephemera!
I always have. Of course, we use to just call it old stuff;
antique, art nouveau, art deco, tin-type photographs etc.
These last two are styles of art popular during
specific eras. However, ephemera is the word we use lately
that easily encompasses all such
lovely, and even quirky
styles of the past.
Yes, this includes the now-popular vintage.
Whether you are an artist, a teacher,
a scrap-booker, or crafter,
you're reading this because either you love it
or you're curious.
Check out some of these sites for a fun lesson
and start your own collection.
The Graphics Fairy has all kinds of ephemera in which to lose yourself.
She posts the original
and sometimes shares other versions that
might be useful.
Travel Brochure Graphics is a site
that shares lost advertising for travel,
cruise travel, and more.
This one is interesting just to look at!
Outside the Margins shares some fun photographs
that are worth looking at.
Many are colorized,
most are fun or even quirky.
Karens Whimsy displays another nice list
from which you can choose from.
This one is located on the left-hand side
and offers an array of interests,
including the ancient past, Native Americans,
silhouettes, vintage fashions,
and so much more!
This is a fun site.

- As long as I'm on this journey, rambling through life's exhilarating highs and trudging heavily amongst it's incapacitating lows, I might as well share whatever may be gleaned from my little bits of wisdom and my many missteps. No room for judgment from this broken mama. I'm writing from my heart: raw, open, messy, but saved. And I'm still thanking God!
