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

Just had to share this GIANT CHRISTMAS BEAR that graced the grounds of Hilltop Nursery this past Christmas season. It was impressive in person! hilltopnurseryny.com/

That's followed by Steve's repro putz ornaments --- very much reminiscent of the vintage type you often find on EBAY -- well long story short, Lynn (who originally started this flurry of activity) ended up inspiring just about everyone else in our putzing world--click on the link to see page after page, including the template, of unabashed creativity--last time I checked there six pages of tips, resources, and lots of photos from so many folks! http://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=756

And finally, one of our favorite wind-up toys featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com

Click on the photos and enjoy.

And if you are looking for vintage made in Germany miniatures--many of which would be perfect for this project--go to Meyer Imports. They also have tons of German glass glitter available and currently have a pretty good sale--don't know how long the link will last http://bit.ly/1RGn2Jj

    1. The expression is/was priceless. As a friend pointed out, a lot of bears have that "Cutesy little smile"--not this one!
