Ephemera refers to written and printed matter published with a short intended lifetime. Something transitory; lasting a day. [from answers.com]

My ephemera collection is growing.

Flea markets are the only place where I can afford as beautiful things as these curled up borders. Paper that some may consider trash makes my heart flutter. This white and green paper lace for cupboads, the food cupons from the war with their patterns and numbers – and the scrap die cut album that some kid wrote FLYGPLAN on a long time ago.

I adore these things.
