To the right, a wonderful Christmas gift from a friend: a package of vintage postcards featuring turn of the century women--and among them this one of Camille Clifford, known as the quintessential Gibson Girl. You can read more about Clifford--and her 18 inch wasp-waist--EIGHTEEN INCHES--here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camille_Clifford
Clifford is followed by a shot of this year's Fontanini nativity, the left side, complete with Roman soldiers. The carpenter's "shed" was actually a stable created by Howard Lamey of littleglitterhouses.com--but took on a new life instead. This year, miniature vintage bubble lights from the 70's were added. Stay tuned for more. Click on the photos.
