thrift love thursday :: 07.29.2010

29 Jul

{thrift love thursday will be a (hopefully) regular feature. i plan on sharing one or some of my favorite thrifty finds each week. i hope you enjoy them!}


i have a very soft spot for paper ephemera. i have a very soft spot for the word ephemera, too, but that’s neither here nor there. i saw this cute framed card in a goodwill store and thought just that: “it’s cute. it’s framed. meh.” but then i flipped it over and melted when i saw that lienol (like lionel?) loved valerie. and he did so in 1942.

i have so many questions: was lienol in the war? was he married to valerie? or were they just sweet on each other? did valerie keep this gift secretly tucked away? or was it hanging for all to see?

i’m afraid that i’m that person who likes to daydream about where things came from. i can’t go to an estate sale without looking around and wondering about people’s lives, what they did, where they went, who they loved, who loved them. love always seems to come in it for me, somehow. i’m a true romantic, i’m afraid, no matter how many biting remarks escape my lips.
