Collage Materials

20 years ago I came upon a stash of Time Magazines circa 1952. These have followed me around long enough. If anyone wants them and is willing to pay the shipping I'll send them to a good home. (in…Continue

EPHEMERA Now!

Posted on May 11, 2019 at 10:17pm 0 Comments

It's time again to put out the call to interested ephemeralists and makers of collage. I have more of these old magazines (Mostly women's magazines from the 40s, Ladies Home Journal, The House Beautiful, etc.) that I would like to give away. I also have clipped (what I deem) the usable parts of several of the magazines for those who want to cut to the…

I know just how vexing an issue this can be and that's why I've decided to offer this handy info wheel to those confused by this crazy, mixed up, modern world of mail art. I hasten to add: this is only a prototype. We're looking for investors who might want to help us iron out a few of the kinks. Please go to our gofund me site elsewhere on this planet. Or just bask in the knowledge that there are answers out there to questions that seemed beyond the reach of science. Many…

YEAR O THE PIG PLUS MORE

Happy Year o' the Pig and all that. But wait...there's more. I'm finishing off my gargantuan scanning project. And now I have all these old magazines that I'm wondering what to do with. I've considered selling them on Etsy but it seems like a fool's errand since…

I’m glad it arrived. I am really loving the magazines. Thanks again for the offering.

I’m sorry about your mom. It doesn’t matter how old you are it is difficult to lose parents.  My mother is 89 and has some dementia but is otherwise pretty healthy for her age. My father died at 45 but his father lived to be 101.  

Your moms dream visit shows that she is still with you.

Living in Hattiesburg is much like some of the ads in your magazines. We moved here in 2015 from Nashville area. I grew up here but left when I was 19 and vowed never to return. The weather is great. Hattiesburg is a little over an hour to the gulf coast and about the same to New Orleans. The culture is different. The other day I overheard a couple of old men (probably my age) talking about how they would not own a cell phone even if someone gave them one. Internet is not available everywhere here and lots of people don’t use it. Many people still use cash and don’t trust banks or government. The first question I get asked is where I go to church and they are astonished that I can function when I tell them we don’t participate in the religious experience as they understand it. Women are expected to “fix their husbands plate” and “get another glass of tea” on demand. My female relatives actually ask their husband’s permission to buy things and go places. I’ve slways been a bit of a rebel. Only came back to care for my elderly mother. But housing is really cheap and medical care seems to be excellent because the doctors are not focused on getting rich.  Food is incredible with lots of Cajun and seafood and fresh vegetables.
