BUT... I do have a little something to share with you.
I was in Barrie Sunday to watch the SuperBowl with my Dad .... but earlier that afternoon I skipped out to do a little Antique Market Shopping at the 400 Market. I was THRILLED to see the amount of PostCards, Vintage Photos and Ephemera they had there. Yep... I will be back.
Check out the stash I did pick up:
You'll see lots of fun turn of the century (as in 1900) postcards, a Music Book, promo materials for a builder in the 50s, some buttons, charms, ephemera, old stamps -- YEP I got a hull. I can't wait to look up some of those postcards online and get a little history on them. That's my favourite thing about collecting them: finding ones I like and then learning about them - THEN I will scan and make art with them. Yippee!
I also FOUND THE PERFECT book!!
I have been searching for the perfect book to create an art journal with. I wanted to have the spine say something that reflected what I want to put on the inside. I've been looking on and off for a few months and then presto!!!
The spine reads: A Woman's Heart and other Stories (De Maupassant - c1951).
And look at what else I found!!
My mother remembers this book ... and I have heard it mentioned by others. Many women were introduced to their "monthly bill" via this informational pamphlet by Kotex. LOL, gotta love it! Do you remember it?
I LOVE this page -- on the left things you can do when you have your period, on the right -- things you shouldn't do! Basically you can clean yourself but don't do sports. WOW... how fun. The how to attach your pad to the belt page was a memorable one too! :)
I may be showing my age now but... I wasn't given the above like my mother... I was given this:
LOL..... Maybe I should have used this book for my journal -- NAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Enjoy! Now go make art!
