Free Vintage Downloads - Ephemera

What is ephemera?


Written or printed collectible memorabilia

Basically it's just old papers, tickets, brochures,
receipts, envelopes, written letters, etc..
that had some sort of significance
at one time...

Would you ever had thought that a hand written
letter would be a thing of the past?

It's strange to think that they are sold
in antique shops, but people collect them...

I like the illustrations and penmanship.

*Pork, Lard, & Sausages*
Lard was an important cooking staple
up until the early 1900's, when it was replaced
with vegetable oils and butter.

Did you know that pure lard has no trans fat
and has less saturated fat than butter?

Hey, this guy looks like
a beardless Abe Lincoln!

These would be great additions

or handmade card projects.

  13. Hi Pamela

    I am sooooo enjoying your blogs - the downloads are some of the best I've seen on the web - and it's nice to know that downloading them is safe and ensures that I'm not flounting any copyright laws - I'd only ever use them for personal use anyway...

    Thank you for clearing up the definition of ephemera - i've never know the true meaning of it - I just thought it was anything vintage!!!

    Thank you
