So much to show you as the countdown begins...

To the right and in excellent condition, a Walt Disney Christmas coloring book from 1953, courtesy of  Rossano aka Bud Care--he has an outstanding photo collection of vintage Disney ephemera and more you just have to see; click on the link http://bit.ly/1kemxXN

That's followed by the 1954 WESTINGHOUSE DECORATING IDEAS booklet--with an emphasis on commercial application--a'la those gorgeous exterior department store windows we can still see in some places today--but not as much as there used to be; see the whole booklet here http://bit.ly/1S7yFaM

And finally...another scene from Dianne's amazing 2015 Christmas putz (yep I've been leaving off  the "e" for some reason!) There are more of those very early vintage Made in Japan houses we all know and covet! 

Click on the photos and enjoy!
