Beautiful French Ephemera & Digital Art

 A While Back I Received a
 Beautiful Antique French Document dating 1848
and some French Money Orders
 with Wonderful Typography. Also these Gorgeous Stamps
They Came from a New Friend in France.
 
 I can't Tell you how amazing it is to Hold 
a Handwritten Document from 1848. 
I  thought it would be Fun to Look up 
what was Happening in France during this time.
They were in the Midst of another Revolution 
where  Louis Napoleon Bonaparte 
( Nephew of Napoleon)
was Elected the President of the Second  Republic.
I Find this so Interesting!
 
Here is some Digital Fun I had with 
These Beautiful Old Pieces of Ephemera.
 Crowns & Butterflies...
 Bees & Keys...
Baroque Borders and Beautiful Script!
Some of my Favorite things!
Have a Wonderful Sunday Everyone !

What a wonderful gift, Jill! We really do have so much in common--makes me smile! I love nothing more than to hold history in my hands...everyday, household objects, hand-written documents...those things. I love researching them and their times, just as you described...keeps us connected to those in the past, doesn't it?

Thank-you for sharing these beauties, my friend...wishing you a lovely day!
