MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

To the right, the 2014 Victorian White Feather tree putz with large castle by Howard Lamey of littleglitterhouses.com; English guards also hand-carved by Lamey; carriage and horses, vintage wedding favor 1960's, 1970's. The small castle is by Cody Foster; the tree's ornaments are hand-made using vintage and new components and dresdens; some vintage glass balls; the angel on the roof is vintage celluloid, made in Japan.

It's followed by a glorious ad from 1948 promoting Ingrid Bergman as Joan of Arc. Bergman had been lobbying to play Joan for many years, and this film was considered a dream project for her. It received mixed reviews and lower-than-expected box office, though it clearly was not a "financial disaster" as is often claimed. You can read more about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_of_Arc_%281948_film%29

And after that, an oldie but goodie and one of our favorite early putz houses---curiously narrow too.

Click on the photos and enjoy.

Well we bet you didn't know this one:  http://www.legacy.com/news/legends-and-legacies/iron-eyes-cody-crying-indian/1843/

Check out this miniature steam train playset--perfect size for putz villages--it doesn't work of course and is more for effect. 

Still quite interesting though

We just love the Silvercow Creations site--over 21 pages of unusual things--everything from teeny spun cotton mushrooms to vintage scraps to you name it.

Spend some time there--lots of crafting--and putzing inspiration: http://etsy.me/1IdhJr2
