The lighter side of ephemera

Here's a site after my own heart: a paean to the joys (and horrors) of kitchy paper crap from the past. One look at this and--sorta like Proust's madeline--I was transported back to elementary school, where all the teachers dressed just like this.

And did I have a "Little House on the Prairie" getup? And elephant-bottom pants (so called, I guess, because they were even wider than bell bottoms)? Well, I think the evidence is right here.

I have to say, I love your reflections on ephemera, and I couldn't agree more.

Thanks--I know that first ephemera post was awfully wordy...so I appreciate your sticking it out for round two! --R.
