FEED THE BIRDS! Spring is just around the corner at Feed The Birds, one of Croton’s most interesting specialty stores. Owners Rob & Maria Armanini carry not only bird feeders, bird baths, bird houses and bird seed, they also have nature and bird-related books and toys for kids and a variety of other gift items. Almost all the products are made in the U.S.A. and the work of many local artists, authors and craftspeople is featured. The Armaninis are 28-year residents of Croton and opened their store in Harmon 7 years ago. They’re great supporters of local organizations, including the Croton Arboretum, Teatown’s EagleFest and the Croton Little League…READ AND SEE MUCH MORE HERE https://www.facebook.com/crotonunited/posts/764428520380848

FRENCH ACTRESS MUSIDORA

NEW FROM OUR FRIENDS AT EUROPEAN FILM STAR POSTCARDS: MUSIDORA 

Click on the photo: 3/31/17 This afternoon a new book on the early cinema is launched at EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, http://bit.ly/2oo4FNF by Dutch film historian Annette Förster. This wonderful book (yes, I've already read it) offers comprehensive accounts of the professional itineraries of three women in the international silent cinema: Dutch stage and film actress Adriënne Solser, French actress and filmmaker Musidora and Canadian-born actress and filmmaker Nell Shipman. EFSP congratulates the author! 

With her heavily kohled dark eyes, somewhat sinister make-up, pale skin and exotic wardrobes, French actress Musidora (1889-1957) created an unforgettable vamp persona. READ AND SEE MUCH MORE HERE http://filmstarpostcards.blogspot.com/2017/03/musidora.html

ROB & MONICA, DEEP FLASHBACK, OR HEY HO! LET'S GO!

And now more from Rob and Monica...there's the Queens Museum, the Ramones, the remains of the World's Fair, a very cool diner (CLICK ON THE PHOTO), Louis Armstrong and more...it's a 'DEEP FLASHBACK"...HEY HO LET'S GO...

Thursday, March 30, 2017 - Last June, we took a vacation day on a Friday to go adventuring in Queens and, somehow, forgot to include the day in any of our blog postings. It was not a day of saling. That was not on our agenda that day so if you are waiting to see what we found that day, you're going to be disappointed. There were no sales. There were no finds. This day was all about a fun day off together in Queens, a drive of less than one hour to our west. It started with the Ramones! 

The Queens Museum was first built for the 1939 New York World's Fair to house the New York City Pavilion, a place to see displays about the various municipalities. READ MORE HERE  http://bit.ly/2oFJXbp
