I spent this last Christmas at home in my apartment, in the neighborhood of Westlake in Los Angeles, with two of my most favorite people, Corey Cunningham and Julie Pepin. Here are a few photographs I snapped on the Christmas morning we spent together.

I wanted to create a space on this blog where I could share pieces from my collection of paper ephemera. This collection has been accumulating for over 10 years, growing from numerous visits to garage sales, thrift stores, swap meets, estate sales, and vintage paper fairs. It is important to me to get into the habit of actively sharing the vast number of photographs, postcards, letters, magazines, maps, calendars, greeting cards, and more, that rest in my home. (It just seems a little greedy to keep them all to myself, these items never meeting another gaze other than my own). So every Wednesday of each week it is, a virtual Show and Tell of sorts, how nice!
