As always, some wonderful finds, oldies but goodies and more.  Click on the photos and links.

Always worth a second and third look--yes, it's new but we love this effect--it's part of the outstanding 2014 Christmas display from flickr friend, MatthewUnd, all rights reserved.   See much more--it's all very charming and done with great care--lots of new putz houses too and plenty of inspiration--just click here.

It's followed by a most curious 1871 ad for  the new and improved "Merry Christmas Stove" (clever marketing!?), as well as a 1934 ad featuring Santa Claus and Corona typewriters--and a VERY EFFECTIVE piece of 1930's illustration for Lifesavers Candy---when "lime" was a new and exciting flavor!  Again, click on the photos and links.

"HOW DO I APPLY FOR THE AFFORDABLE BENEDICT BLVD APARTMENTS BEING BUILT"

Sad to say, this blog continues to receive inquiries about the "affordable" apartments being built on Benedict Boulevard and how to "apply for them".   It's easy to understand this confusion given Trustee Olver's recent Gazette letters on the subject. To those asking, these apartments are market-rate---as far as is known--and not affordable, i.e. subsidized, as has been implied. Please direct your questions to the village board of trustees at https://www.crotononhudson-ny.gov/home/pages/contacts-directory instead.
