See Ephemera Extraordinaire collection at:
Bloom & Bee Swanky
This is my favorite store!  It has a great collection of 
everything antique, unique & totally wonderful.
It is such a pleasure to go there!! 
At B&BS there is a section of office/business unique finds.  There you will find
Ephemera Extraordinaire garland with business type papers used to embellish a desk or book case.

My friend & I are going there after lunch today, so I'll take a picture!!

Ephemera Extraordinaire

This is a detail photo of the fun garland.
Garland is about 9 feet in length
Each is made from vintage papers, pages & other interesting paper designs.

Display Can with packages of Valentine Garland
from Ephemera Extraordinaire

Vintage Garland added to the mantel to bring some added joy to our memories.

Ephemera Extraordinaire

The new creation is going great & I have a goal:  get it on this little blog. Hoho
My new creation is paper garlands.  Each uniquely created from bits of ephemera & other interesting papers.
The shapes are then sewn into a garland (about 9 feet) for hanging/draping to enhance any vignette.
Vintage papers such as sheet music, aged print from novels, maps, & other ephemera are collected to assemble a garland that is artistically pleasing & also whimsical.

Each garland is one-of-a-kind & made wtih great joy & creativity
to add a bit of magic
to any vignette.

Since I've always had the motto of "packaging is everything" - the garlands are presented in a little bag with a fresh bay leaf & a bit of paper fluff & a sprinkle of glitter.  Pretty cute, even in the package!!
