Exactly! Or dust, for that matter. Ironing--that's something else entirely. :)

Oh , things were wild at sears and roebuck in fifties , Oh !

Incredible how you made different images work so well in one picture , this could be shot on location , except for the fact it´s not

sure it must be an accurate mental image of the elation , joy and relief given by the home appliances now at the reach of everybody with cash to spare

Without censorship of those times sears and roebuck would have paid big bucks for this advertisement

The thing I love about using old paper is that it gets me (and I hope the people who see the work) into a whole different frame of mind. When the first air-jet vacuum cleaner came out in the 1950s, it was such a big deal--I know, because my mother had one. She gave the vacuum a name, she was THAT bonded with it. So much history in the old stuff....

Always nice to see your work.  I am new kid on the block here in Art of Collage and am seeing all the types of collage represented here.  I have experimented with a lot of different types of collage and am finally kind of settling into my own little voice in the matter.  Have always come back to look at yours and admire your imagination and the way your are able to not only create something interesting but also make a statement.

Hi, and nice to meet ya. Thanks for the kind words. I'm been out of the country for almost a month so haven't been around much, but hope to catch up with your work soon. Funny you noticed the statement thing...when I have something to say, well, that's when I pick up the scissors.... Finding voice is such a fascinating endeavor, and, at least for me, perennially shifting.
