Friday finds - Paper ephemera.

Two fascinating paper finds today - What a treat!
With an idea to use for some kind of inspiration within our designs, or perhaps just because they look so lovely. We found these beautiful little indian matchbox labels at a market sometime last year.
Mainly featuring chickens and ducks, I'm unsure of the significance or huge popularity of avian images within the matchbox branding world. Any ideas? Such warm toasty colours too, hmmmm.

When we were searching for nice vintage display boxes and tins, before we opened our little paper boutique, we found these beautiful old bus tickets in one of the tins. A lovely find, need I say more?
