What is Ephemera??? It actually is derived from the latin language, and means not to be kept a day. So the written notes, ledgers, ads etc.....all those wonderful pieces of paper that were never intended to be saved, or used again, are now being repurposed for a myriad of things.
I happen to be a HUGE fan of this medium. I use old documents and ledger papers, reciepts, advertisements, and labels. I am soooooooooo excited about the new items that I just designed for Peacock Park Design. I used old letters, and reciepts, billheads and ledgers, to be put on tissue paper garlands, flowers, and lanterns. They turned out amazing.
I trimmed this little tree in my studio workspace with old embellishments that I found at the Paris Flea Market. I also found a box of old letters at a house sale, and put them all over the tree, and in a wreath wrapped around my cherub statue.
You really can decorate with anything. It doesnt need to be high priced ornaments. I think it can be charming with a little imagination.
I also pick up these antique ornaments when ever I see them. I dont know but something about the old ornaments, with their speckles, and spots that give them that extra oompf. I use ornaments to fill up bowls everywhere.
Happy Holidays to Everyone !!
