Giving Thanks

Just ignore the "2010" part.  :D

Good morning, my dear Ephemeraologists!  And to my friends reading in the States, a very happy day-before-Thanksgiving to you!  :D

First of all, allow me to address my lack of posting.  Readers, it has been such a wonderful month for so many reasons, but it has also been ridiculously busy.  If you read last Wednesday's post you'll know why, but it hasn't let up since!  This was something that I hadn't anticipated.  I'm afraid it's going to be like this for awhile - you may only get 2-3 posts per week.  I hope they're posts you will enjoy regardless!  :D

Today, I would just like to say "Thank you!" to all of you, my dear readers.  Thank you for all of your input, comments, Facebook "likes", and sharing of ephemera.  I have "met" (and indeed, actually MET!) some of the most wonderful people because of this blog!  What an amazing age we live in - there is NO way I would've ever gotten to know most of you had it not been for Ephemeraology.  To know that there are others out there like me who have a passion for all things vintage, papery and patinaed, well, it's very comforting.  It's so much fun to "talk shop" with you about vintage Israeli gum wrappers, or European stick pins, or vintage clothing labels.  I love to hear YOUR stories about your favorite items, too!

I also want to thank Manto Fev, The Paper Flea Market and Silver Crow Creations for their continued awesomeness on the giveaway front!   You have these three lovely businesses to thank for anything you've won in the past year, and they're always ready to help me out.  Thanks, guys!  You're the best!  :D

Regardless of whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow or not, I wish you a wonderful rest of your week.  Thanks for sticking with me during this post drought!  :D
