I love that woman in the coveralls, she looks like she means business!

She's from an article in the National Park Service publication "Common Ground" [I think it's Common Ground, I get two different NPS publications. They're free by the way--at least for Americans, I'm not sure they send them overseas and are full of totally interesting topics about history, our cultural resources, heritage and preservation]. The article was about all the real-life Rosie the Riveters. There were some other great photos, but I really liked how her blue coveralls went with the blue/brown star paper. I liked that paper so much, I actually bought it in another color too. Wink

I'm finally posting here because a) I'm such a fan of this gallery! and b) I'm the source of the minstrel/jester guy (I just sent him to Banga; I'm so glad he found such an immediate and awesome use)! It is so rewarding (maybe even vindicating) to see something I unearthed/rescued and released out into the world turned into something beautiful and then sent further out into the world for others' enjoyment...I'm the only person in my household who sees "ephemera"; the others just see "junk".  Smiley

Anyway, the jester was actually a 50s or 60s Christmas card, of all things, and I bought it at a junk-store in Bakersfield, CA, last year.

Thanks for all your continuing creations; this is always such an inspiring thread and I hope to join you in the next tip-in swap!
As soon as I pulled him out of the envelope I knew I had to use him on a page asap! I even saved the other half of the card once I cut the jester out, in case I need it Smiley I got such an enormous stash of ephemera from calluna; I'm sure you all will see more of it popping up soon!

Thanks! Newish haircut and newish glasses [I've been wearing these since September!]

I can't wait until more pages arrive! Both in my mailbox and in the gallery.

behold the swell page I received from Katxena yesterday!!!

All kinds of coolness-collage layers and text, stamps, and a rusty 4!!!  and the back is just as great...

really nifty images and stamps - note the bottom NATO stamp, when I was in grade 6 we lived in Germany (my dad was in the Canadian Armed Forces) and I went on a school trip to the NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, I have wonderful memories of that trip Smiley  Thanks for the great page Katxena!!

When I looked at that page I said out loud, "Is that a rusty FOUR?" And yes, it is a rusty four. You are amazing kat. Anything that makes me talk to my laptop is amazing.
