As I began the grueling task, last week, of cleaning up the mess I call a bedroom–a task which has yet to be completed, by the way–I came across my rather extensive collection of ephemera.  (Okay, okay…some of it isn’t even ephemera.  Some of it is junk that needs to be thrown away.)  However, I wanted to share a few of the pieces that I *do* love.  I just find them to be sooooo delightful.

Do you hoard collect ephemera?  What kind of pieces do you gravitate toward?

ie6Okay, this isn’t really ephemera, but I love the art and had to share.  From a friend, who also happens to be an incredible illustrator and owner of Astrokitty Comics in Lawrence, KS.
