"A fever of one day's continuance only" is one definition of ephemera, but surely that dictionary is wrong about the one-day-only.

I know you all think you are receiving the motherlode of ephemera- but I seem to have been partnered with a pack rat who has been collecting for 100 years!!! (only kidding!) Tristitia may win an award for what she can put in an envelope- but she cheated a little. I received a huge Fedex bag of ephemera and one of the most beautiful ATC's with a matching mini tag to go with it. As they say- Nothing succeeds like excess. Thank you so much Tristitia I was blown away by your generosity!
I will post the ATC first because it took 7 pictures to show a part of what she sent me. To show it all spread out I would have needed the Hubble Telescope- but it's broken I hear!!



Now the Ephemera-
This first shot shows the envelope she sent compared to a legal size envy-

Next- the large papers (including the horoscope and sports pages from a chinese newspaper& pages from an Islaamic book) with the coolest chinese....I don't know what it's called but it's very cool. Down front in pic

The first smaller envelope- stamps and paper items

Next, another smaller envy w/ buttons, and cut-outs

Next- the fabric envy- asst'd ribbons and scrap fabric

Lastly, the picture pile- photos, cards, loteria cards, joss paper, etc...

What wonderful packages!

Joss paper is used in Chinese ancestor worship or in special offerings to deities.  More here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joss_paper

It's really cool stuff -- basically, you burn it to offer it to the god, or to an ancestor.  When someone passes on, you burn all the stuff they will need in the next life -- clothing, food, money, etc -- so that they can take it with them.  Only it's paper clothing, food and money -- very practical.
