Almost done with this book! Here's my latest altered book page....Done with all vintage ephermera actually the background is the BACKS of the spine of a 1908 book. I have also had these teeny blue suede handmade boots forever and finally decided to use them in a project. I wish they were life size because I would wear these all the time!

A set of breathtaking pair Art Deco home furnishing lithos like these would have been the envy of any Flapper girl.

 

This is a two sided illustration in wonderful smooth condition; done on heavy quality semi-gloss paper stock and features a gorgeously appointed bedroom.

The edges and corners are nice and sharp. with almost no tanning to speak of at all; pretty amazing considering this good lookin' print is 85 years old!

 

We should all look this sharp at 85.

Velma & Iris enjoyed all the world had to offer: fame, fortune, and free bingo cards at St. Ignatius Tuesday Bingo Night. However, their beauty was marred by their transparent egos. They had no friends, only flunkys and vipers who clung to them for the swag amd pompous displays of affection afforded by their status in the Land of Phoney Baloney.

 

They died penniless after one too many bottles of Liquid Veneer poisoned and eroded their hollow souls.

Had to fatten this Santa up - found him totally flattened and in need of a good ironing (pictured here afterward) to get his bounce back. Likely from the 1930s-1920s such as other Halloween-type dancers of this nature. Note - honeycomb was originally a dark red but has since faded...

The Victoria Hotel (third such structure with that name) opened on the Northwest corner of (140) 1406 Government & Johnson Streets with P.T. Patton, Proprietor (previously a fruit dealer on Yates Street.)

In the basement are fine club rooms, pantries, wine cellars and billiard rooms. The ground floor has the entrance hall, the largest in the city, surrounded by large potted plants and ferns which lead the visitor to the hotel office. Solid carved oak - the ceiling and walls have been frescoed very artistically with various views, while the hall ceiling is painted with large clusters of yellow roses. One of the doors takes the visitor into the large bar room which is garnished with mahogany and black walnut, and like the office, is also frescoed elaborately. Next to the bar is the short-order restaurant the entrance is on Government Street...

Postcards & Ephermera from the Glen A. Mofford Collection

  

My nephew MAtt does parkour and also takes video - he got this very cool shot jumping on the trampoline and I've been wanting to scrap it

I cut out the large "S" and stitched it over the photo

I used Doodlebug paper, sequins and sticker letters, Sizzix tag dies, Walmart twine, Heidi Swapp chipboard word , ephermera and arrows, Pink Paislee arrow, Jillibean soup and misc button, KI chipboard, Crate Paper chipboard camera, K&Co black metal word, Heidi Swapp stamp and arrow die.

just having some digital fun.

I think the loveliest sleeping beauties are babies (including baby animals too :D). They look so peaceful and serene when they are fast asleep,free from all worries and cares. Ophelia the owl and her kitty companion have already drifted off to dreamland..... :D This archival print will look lovely framed in a nursery or children bedroom.

 

from an ad campaign best forgotten

The booty....Vintage french champagne lables, cigar labels, postcards, and assorted ephermera, with some current ribbons, and bath yummies,

All in Stephanies colors

oh the large plaque and a little Marie Antoinette type still life.

I have been pulling out a bunch of old vintage ephermera and making some holiday gift tags!! Saves a bunch of money and has a special touch.

Embellished with vintage lace & ribbon roses...

OH another sweet treat...silk and lace

Victorian collor

I hope Stephanie will like it!

What people were reading in November of 1956

The Marguerite Henry classic about the Goldolphin Arabian, one of the three founding studs of the Thoroughbred, "King of the Wind."

Opened in Kings Cross, Sydney, in 1963, Sammy Lee and Reg Boom created an Australian legend - Les Girls. The restaurant seemed to target the straight market, titillated by the frisson of the sexy Kings Cross district in Sydney. This is a scan of the rear of a souvenir photo folder purchased by a couple dining at the related Latin Quarter restaurant.

A sample of some of the matches I have collected from many of the bars I drank at in Vancouver plus a few purchased on ebay.

Do you remember many of these places? Most have changed or are long gone now.

Best viewed by clicking all sizes and select the largest size.

I like the graphic quality and simplicity of this label. Note the alternate A in the word 'ARIEU', with its rounded tip. Any ideas what is this slab face ?
