More Pages

 I keep a shipping envelope of bits and pieces of paper, 
ephemera and old photos in my bag to use when I journal.

I love to go to a favourite cafe, have a latte and a scone,

and lose myself for a hour or so, just playing with words and paper.

 I've come across lots of these old snaps at Antique Faires

and I love the instant vintage look.  Not to mention how fun
 it is to come up with a back story for the people in the photos.


  1. I love playing with "found relatives" too!

  2. bobbie - Sometimes they are much more interesting (and safer!) than our own! LOL!

  3. You know, I've never used vintage photos in my work very often. I always feel as though they are sacred. I don't know why. I don't feel that way about ripping an old book apart! Lately, however, I've seen people doodle ON VINTAGE PEOPLE! Right on them! I thought: hold on! I'm going to mail out sepia photos of myself, and tell people, PLEASE! Doodle on my face!
