Morning everyone...as always, some wonderful finds. Click on the photos and links. First up an oldie but goodie--a special request--and a repeat--and one of our faves from Howard Lamey--a repro/interpretation of a made in Japan original--the "Embassy" House; see it from start to finish, illuminated too, and a pattern is provided as well! Go to http://bit.ly/2mxaqrV
It's followed by some examples from our growing obsession with cabinet cards/postcards featuring highly posed children, dolls, dogs and kitties. These are mainly pre-WWI and European.
Again click on the photos and links.
To the new reader who wants to create a narrow putz village for her narrow dining room windowsill--this is JUST THE TICKET--yes we've been asked before! It comes to you courtesy of Howard Lamey and Paul Race of BIG INDOOR TRAINS, click on the link; if you cut out some windows here and there you can run a line of battery operated Christmas lights behind the scene to "pop it" with some light http://bit.ly/2mO0tbt
This year a friend wants to create a medieval Christmas village under her antique feather tree. This whole thing got started when she inherited two vintage metal Knight in shining armor book ends(!) And so she's looking for cardboard castles....
And so....Speaking of castles, and Fey and Lamey, click on the link to see a Flickr gallery of putz castles and "lakies" too; always worth a second (and third!) look--go to https://bit.ly/2Cp873f
