Tonight I will be listening to a talk on how to store your personal paper treasures. I have always be intrigued by ephemera – those odd scraps of paper and things people throw away (movie tickets, grocery lists, etc.) In fact, once I had the privilege of holding a job where a good chunk of my responsibility was going through such papers at the Urban Archives at Temple University.
Not long ago, a dear friend of mine came across some wonderful personal ephemera – the bill from the hospital when she was born as well as some other goodies related to the event! She very graciously sent it to me and allowed me to share it. Aside from the prices, I get a kick out of the simplicity of the address on the envelope. At the time, the area was very rural. And the least I can do in gratitude for her allowing me to share this is to also share the link to her website (truly one of the most gifted pastel artists of today) https://www.hvefinn.com/
