And to the reader who found the "vintage Santa fork"--check out these wild vintage plastic Christmas spoons and forks by ornament maker ShinyBrite, courtesy of AngelaG.
We believe these are from the late 1950's--any one know for sure out there?
And finally an oldie but goodie from WAY BACK; Howard Lamey's SUPER VICTORIAN!
Click on the photos and enjoy.
Oh and see more about Lamey's Super Victorian here.
We just had to tell you about this--a laser cut kit for the Bates Motel Sized 9" wide, 14" deep and 12" high--found in an etsy shop called VictorianDollhouse--this would be super in a Halloween themed putz village perhaps...http://etsy.me/1B3fFUs
And then of course, there's 1313 Mockingbird Lane! The kit is no longer available but the image is a wow! http://bit.ly/19UIqqn
In the supplies department, you are encouraged to really spend some time at an online shop called RedLeadPaperworks--stamps, texture, mica, embellishments, chipboard shapes, and just generally very cool, very inspirational stuff for the artists--and putz artisans--among us--prices aren't bad either on most of their offerings http://www.redleadpaperworks.com

Hi everyone--just heard from David about the potential age of the Shiny Bright Plastic forks--he says:ReplyDelete
LOVE the Shiny Bright Christmas forks! They look so brittle now, but we can be pretty sure no one would actually use them as forks these days.
The packaging has an address with a ZIP code, and those came into mandatory use in 1963. So they have to be at least mid 1960s. I’m surprised they were made in Hong Kong because plenty of plastic molding was still going on in New York at that time. But they are a visual treat for sure.
