My Vintage Paper Stash...*photo heavy!*

I've been collecting vintage papers and cards and ephemera since William and I started going to estate sales about 8 years ago.   Cards...invitations...old checkbooks (before they had account numbers on them...what?), receipts, plane tickets, game pieces, playing cards, recipe cards, magazines...whew...should I keep going?  Children's books, postage stamps, old photographs and albums, cookbooks, decorating books....you get the idea.  If it's made of paper, I scout it.  If it stinks, I leave it (most of the time).  If it's stained, I usually toss it (I've pitched lots of envelopes too...who wants to lick an old envelope?  haha...) 

So...here you go!  These pictures only give you a GLIMPSE of what I have.  I'll let the pictures do the talking...

Thanks for adding feathers to my nest! Have a wonderful day!

How Feed the Birdies flew in....

Once upon a time two little boys ate Happy Meals in the middle seat of a Ford minivan. Not quite willing to eat the last few fries, they launched them out the door screaming, "feed the birdies!!" And so my journal of a road through motherhood and wifedom, with a little bit of crafting on the side...where everybirdy gets a french fry. And we're all happy about it.
