Here's a quickie share of a few recent Estate Sale finds. Mostly scrap and ephemera. This one up above is really nice and unexpected because of its large size, about 8 x 10 or so. Paper. I'm guessing that maybe it was cut out from an early sheet music. I say "early" because my experience in this neck of the woods (So Cal)) is that most of the sheet music to be found is commonly from the 1930s through the 1950s. My heart skips extra fast whenever I come upon a stash with great graphics from the 1920s or earlier. I get the vapors should I stumble on sheet music from the turn of the century or before. Beautiful!
This Gibson Girl is a pretty common find but she is also large in size. Better yet is that she turned out to be an actual pen & ink drawing. I always seem to find prints. I am especially touched whenever I find a hand done piece or drawing. I'm reminded of my own mortality. It's hard not to wonder if someome a hundred years from now will hold something that I created and wonder about me.
Loved the far away long ago image above. Not exactly sure what is going on there but I can guess. What I do know is that I'd sure like to see the pic come alive before my very eyes.
Scary old grandma, oh bless your heart. You amuse me and you followed me home. As long as you're not the last thing I see before I fall asleep at night, I'm fine and dandy with you being here.
