I found a large brown envelope at the recycle center when I was visiting my parents last month. It looked interesting, and since it was free … I took it so I could go through it later. Well, later is here, and I am surprised!
The envelope is marked “Roses” and inside I found something signed by Evelyn R. The collection of roses are tissue paper, cuttings from the newspaper and magazines, wrapping paper, and small cuts of wallpaper. Some of the advertisements on the back of the roses are pretty interesting too (another day/another post). A few of the items are dated from the 1940’s.
