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

We just love the graphics on old Christmas ornament boxes, particularly those by Shiny Brite. The photo to the right comes to us courtesy of takeabreak, all rights reserved.

That's followed by an incredible find from our old movie star magazine collection, a 1952 publicity still for a very young Marilyn Monroe!

And finally from an old hardware catalog, circa 1885, a metal toy savings bank; love the architecture! Suitable for a putz perhaps--or a candy box?

Click on the photos and enjoy! 

These paper trees are very interesting--easy to make too--with just enough retro whimsy for a 50's - 60's Christmas display http://bit.ly/28Qe62B
