The past couple days, I've been sifting through my paper treasures.
And making bundles.
There's always more paper than I can ever use.
It's all yellowed so needs little distressing.
Hymnal page, antique mathematics text book pages, writing primer,
many foreign dictionary pages (French and German mostly)...
...First day issue postage postcards, Victorian trade cards (originals, not copies!), vintage air mail envelopes,...
all now sandwiched together between two antique book covers
and offered to you, tied up with string, in my etsy shop.
I'll have a few of these "paper sandwiches", but only one, possibly two of these letter bundles, since I am running out of good letters.
I hate to sell you inferior goods.
This particular letter bundle has a hand written letter from Idaho
containing two photos.
I didn't separate the pieces so the next owner can have the excitement of finding them,
in their original envelope.
I dug through my paper and picked out the good stuff for you.
Next I'm thinking of filling some cigar boxes with treasure since Hoardica just visited Cuba.
Not only does Darcy's Postcard Challenge prompt me to make art each week,
I also get inspired to sort my
trash, er stash in a thematic way!
