Junk Becomes Useful - 4th of July Version

Vintage 4th of July stuff is not that easy to find...but I do have some fun ephemera....post cards, old photos, vintage flash cards picturing a sailor and a white picket fence. I mean, what could be more American that that? I made some color copies and got to work...

I threw on some vintage buttons and look...birthday cards for my dad and my niece, who both have 4th of July birthdays.

Love the "stuff" here. You're right about how hard it
it to find things like this. I'm always on the lookout for anything "red,white & blue" or patriotic. I have a small stash that I just love.

It is extremely hard to find and just the reason I haven't any. When I do find something it sells so fast. Hard to keep it when I can sell it. SIGH!
