Vintage Inspiration Friday #60 Vintage Ephemera Collage

Hi Everyone, it's that time of the week again,
time to link up anything "vintage or vintage inspired"
and all your Fall Decorating!

I've been a real lover of paper collage my whole life. I've always loved saving cards, notes, and bits of paper this and that. In my scrapbooks as a kid I saved movie tickets, Birthday cards, notes, magazine name it! I guess I come by it naturally as my paternal grandfather was a printer.

Because of that, I wanted to share with you a couple of images of some paper collage that a friend of mine from Leola's creates. Kristi has been making these themed paper collages behind desilvered antique mirrors for several years. I thought I might have more photos of her work, but these two from the Fall Open House at Leola's in Ozark, Missouri, are my only photos.



Aren't they great? 
 I love her use of type, images, and vintage ephemera.
Hopefully, you can see these images a little larger if you click on them.

And speaking of inspiration, 
wow, there's a lot of it our here this time of year.
