Vintage Scrapbook Art, Recycled

While going through the discards at our nearby auction house, I found a scrapbook that was made as a gift for the president of a woman’s club. It narrowly escaped the dumpster. The pages were falling to bits, but I thought the content was worth keeping… the hand-decorated photos and collaged captions from 1953 were strangely appealing. Maybe because those old ladies don’t look so awfully old to me now… just a group of women trying to do good works and have some fun at the same time. And with hats! Someone put a lot of work into it originally, and I hate to see this kind of thing get trashed. So I salvaged what I could and made  ATCs and postcards. I used the inside cover paper from another old book for backgrounds.
