Another great cabinet card, circa early 1900's, featuring American actress Maud (sometimes spelled Maude) Fealy, this one courtesy of Suzee Cue's private collection. 

You can see and read more about Fealy here

It's followed by one of our favorite 2008 Christmas putz villages from fellow collector Lady J. Lots of very early pieces here, as well as a few houses by and Radko--and Cody Foster.

And finally a very early promo for Gloria Swanson discovered in our vintage magazine stash.  That's some head-dress she's wearing and we have already sent a copy to the village's historical society. Swanson lived in Croton for a time; you can read more about that here

Click on the photos and enjoy.

And for a smile, check out how these putz houses are displayed!

During this last Christmas season, we discovered an amazing yule log video--The Outlander Yule Log! Let it suffice to say this isn't WPIX!

For those who don't know, Outlander is this amazing new series set in Scotland--and it has quite a following.

To read more about it--and see the yule log:

Do you like fire, two dogs, Bear McCreary's music, and thinking about the cast of Outlander naked? Well prepare yourself because Starz has just crafted a Christmas miracle in a never-ending Outlander yule log. It's so great.

The Yule Log is here
