Show and Tell Sunday

Sorry I am posting so late! I got ambitious and made my family a big breakfast this morning, oblivious to the fact that I didn't have this ready last night!
Anyway, show and tell is about ephemera today. I have tons of old paper goodies, I love paper! I decided to share a bit of my postcard collection with you today. This was my first passion in collecting ephemera.
Here is the album I keep most of my postcards in. I found it at Target on clearance and it is perfect. With the album is some of my floral/bird/shoe cards.....
Here are some more of my florals:
Now some glamour girls:


And next, vintage beach babes. These are the postcards that I started collecting at first and still love these seaside cuties!

And the backs are wonderful for using as backgrounds in your art!

Hope you enjoyed my little collection! Have fun visiting all the other Show and Tell Sunday bloggers! xoxo karen.....
