There seems to be a number of things from the summer that are hanging around the kitchen and hallway at the moment. The best way to describe what I am talking about is summer holiday ephemera. The stuff that isn’t intended to be kept.
Perhaps it demonstrates that I am not a perfectionist when it comes to tidying and cleaning the house, nor will I ever be. My invitations to friends are alway prefix with “you will have to take us as you find us“. While my husband says he wants to live a home and not a show house (probably just as well).
Anyway on wandering around the kitchen this evening, I discovered these little treasures stowed away by my step-daughter for safe keeping.
We did a day trip to London which included a visit to the Tate Modern. Stopping at their cafe for refreshments we found all their branded cups and sugar sachets, which I think someone took a shine to.
There is now a growing collection of sugar sachets, which seem to breed on the bread bin. Because every time I walk past they seem to have multiplied.
I tend to collect things that I can store easily, preferably flat, like postcards, napkins or train tickets. What (ephemera) do you keep and collect?
