This week's theme was vintage ephemera. Well I knew that I had plenty of that!
My love of vintage postcards grew into a love for vintage valentines and then onto all vintage cards!
And now I am starting to collect the vintage card boxes too!
Those sweet innocent images and quality still amaze me compared to what we have to choose from today!




I also fell in love with vintage patterns! The older the better!

I have been searching for vintage wallpaper ever since I started seeing the beautiful things bloggers have been using it for but these two are the only ones I've managed to find so far.

Thanks for checking out my ephemera today, Lindsey

Great stuff and beautiful blog! Also.. I love Spencer and muffin! Are they Bichon's or poodles? Or something else? I have a little one that resembles them, but I found her so I am not sure what kind of pup she is! Anyway, thanks for showing all the great stuff and nice blog!

I love your vintage card collection. I would have a lot of fun looking through your boxes :-)
I can't resist buying them when I see them. The graphics back then are just sooo sweet. Sometimes I will just sit and look through my collection and it just makes me feel happy.

Hey there! Love your collection - especially those cute cards and boxes. I just noticed on your etsy shop that you all are from Springfield. I grew up in Marshfield - just down the road! Small world huh?!
Have a great week!
