Vintage Ephemera Love

I have a thing for, well, a lot of things.  One of my passions is vintage ephemera.  I'm not sure why I collect so much of it,  I'm far from ever being a mixed media artist.  Here is some of what we recently gathered. 
See, to me, this is beauty.  I don't know why, but they are just lovely!

These are all vintage clock faces.  Two are actually metal, but the rest, paper.  Because I have an addiction, but can't save everything, I actually scanned each and every one of these for later use.  You get the originals.

These too I scanned a few of.  I love reading the correspondence between two people back then. 

The way people spoke to one another and what they wrote in a letter was so sweet and charming.

Even something like old prescription notes are cute tied up in a bundle together.

I'm sure you can imagine how excited I was to find 5 of these packs hidden behind the doors of the cubby.  One for me, 4 for you.

Ok, technically, these don't count as ephemera, but they are just so cool. 

They have the perfect patina.
Do you have a "thing" for vintage ephemera?
