Show & Tell Sunday - Ephemera

Today's Show & Tell hosted by Cerri is all about ephemera.
I don't have a huge collection, but I do have a few pieces I think are really beautiful.
First is this marriage certificate from 1921. I love the florals!

I love to find old postcards with roses. When the cards have a written message on them, I love 'em even more. I have these postcards displayed on top of mirror harp that I turned upside down and hung on the wall.

Old sheet music is another type of ephemera I like to find.
The cover on this piece is so beautiful I just had to frame it.I couldn't pass up this vintage candy box when I found it. Oh the roses!!! Victorian calling cards are another favorite. The die cuts are amazing...Can't forget vintage valentines!
Another favorite are these little trading cards from the 20's that came in packs of cigarettes.
Be sure to stop over at Cerri's Little Pink Studio for a list of the other Show & Tell participants. There is always so many beautiful things shown and shared about.
Don't miss the chance to win the giveaway I'm having!
All you gotta do is leave a comment on my previous giveaway post, and you'll be entered. I'll be drawing the winning name Monday morning.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

What a wonderful way to display your ephemera, cherished chickadee!!! I've learned something from you today. I just stick mine back in lovely boxes, on old garden gates, my trellis, but I think I'll put it in some lovely bowls also! You're a genius, I tell ya.

Love that cigarette card with the pink rose...sigh. Strange to put something so delicate and beautiful on a cigarette advertisement, somehow cowboys and gangsters seem more appropriate lol. Nice collection!
