Ephemera Decor

I have gotten so many emails looking for these products to come out. So I am going to give away boxes of them when they arrive. If you follow the blog, and if you haven't already, then add this blog to your sidebar favorites on your blog, if you dont have one, then leave a comment. You will be in the drawing. I will give away to a dozen wonderful people. Good Luck.

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 !!
Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook ( Peacock Park Design) we have so many give-a-ways.
I have gotten so many emails regarding the availability of the new paper items. They should be available by early February. You can email or comment to find how to purchase, or find a store near you !! I am just so happy you like it too !!!!!

Just to let you know I still have your furniture, though I've taken it out of the shop and have it at home, that way I get to play with it for a while, just in case you ever make it to Iowa in the next century...ha!

Oh how I love to go ah visitin on quiet Sunday evenings!!! I'm so glad to have found your blog!! I have to tell you that one of the only downfalls about living here in Paradise is that I can't find any of your designs. Nope not a one. I have had to resort to ordering the few things I do have from French Freak & having them sent to one of my kids. Then on my yearly visit to the northlands it's like Christmas and my birthday all rolled into one! :) Oye what a girl has to do for the love of rust and patina!!!

Gina,I will be more then happy to put your blog on my side bar. It makes it all the easier for me to come visit.

Just got home from the Atlanta Market and again your space was the most inspirational at the show. We had grand time exploring your new offerings and placing another order with Peacock Park. The ephemera items hold a special place for us, as we always have a bunch of old, vintage paper and millinery in the shop. Once your flowers, lanterns and banners arrive, they will be in the middle of the display. Thanks, Bob & Susan
