When I was madly opening boxes trying to find my tintypes, I came upon this postcard. It had been in with my mom's collection of ephemera. It was made from cigarillo or cigar wrappers. The original wrappers are collaged on here. Thought it quite amazing.
On the back it says "Dear Postal Friend, have you made any of these cards. I am making a few. Thought I would send you one. Hope you like it. Would you like to joint the Jolly ??? Postal club. it is one dollar to join it. I have joined it. If you think you would I will send you a slip that you can make out then send it back to me. Sincerely, your postal friend..."
I finally did find the tintypes. I had packed them with my art supplies all of which are outside in the shed. I hadn't looked there as I really thought I'd packed them in the boxes labeled "bedroom." Not that it was all that important. But when almost everything you own is packed in boxes sometimes you get crazy about finding a particular thing.
