Around the World in 80 (and more) Pieces of Ephemera

 Oh boy!  Talk about a big surprise!!

 What happens when a good friend
 goes on the trip of a lifetime?

A 'round the world cruise?

 She brings you back an entire gift bag of ephemera!!

 Stamps, coins, receipts,

 tickers, brochures, maps.

 business cards, boarding passes, luggage labels!

As Michelle Ward would say "How cool is that?!"


  1. And Michelle would be right. My artist cousin planned parties for the QE II and Queen Mary II, took her pay in travel and came home with trunks of everything from everywhere, picking up food wrappers on the street in Italy, among so many other things and places. I was positively green. Your friend is most generous and thoughtful. xo

  2. Marylinn - Many of my friends are slightly bemused when I ask if they can bring back what they see basically as trash - but they are delighted when they see how happy it makes me.

  3. bobbie - extremely cool and such a wonderful surprise!
