It’s hard not to love old French ephemera. The curls and embellishments on the cursive writing, fun French words like “Rue”, and the beautiful scenery of medieval city squares and of course, the Eiffel Tower all make for gorgeous elements and themes in journals and crafting.  Not to mention the fashion and beauty advertisements!
