The theme this week at the Three Muses is (Newspaper). My collage is built from a current newspaper background and old clippings from a 1927 "womens" society page that my grandmother had saved (not sure why) but it was amongst her old photos. The image is from flickr-free and I added the color flowers from my own photos.
It's unfortunate but it seems that the day and age of the newspaper is definately passing on. With real-time news on the internet and TV, newspapers cannot possibly keep up and readership and subscriptions are disappearing rapidly. We have lost several local newspapers in the the past year. My husband and I still subscribe to our county paper for local interests and happenings, but it is funny how we sit down and already know most of what's going on in the world from the internet. Despite high-tech we still enjoy our coffee and paper ritual together in the wee hours before heading out- old habits die hard!
