Recycled Collaged Postcards

Collaged from Easter Seals and Boystown Stamps
Vintage Gameboard Piece
Recycled children's books
Found in free bin of garage sale

Four interesting cards made of recycled materials from J. Heritage.

Gorgeous ATC

Another lovely surprise from J Heritage. This one is a metallic, collaged ATC.


I received these two interesting boxes in the mail from J. Heritage of Denver, Colorado. The blue box contains an orange cat, which is obscured by the fragile sticker. Her message is written on the outside edges of the box. It reads, "The story on this piece: It was in a free bin at a garage sale. The Lady who bought this said it is from England. She went to an open-air stall where an artist sold it to her."

The framed image below is "Our Lady of Recycling."

Both pieces arrived intact!
