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

As always, some wonderful finds, oldies but goodies and more. Click on the photos and links.

First up, from our cache of vintage movie magazines, a very young Leslie Caron, hot on the heels of 1953's Lili---for those who have never seen this amazing film:

Lili starred Leslie Caron as a touchingly na├»ve French girl whose emotional relationship with a carnival puppeteer is conducted through the medium of four puppets. 

The screenplay by Helen Deutsch was adapted from "The Man Who Hated People", a short story by Paul Gallico which appeared in the October 28, 1950, issue of The Saturday Evening Post. It won the Academy Award for Best Music.   Read more about it here.

She's followed by a fabulous vintage cabinet card, circa 1905.

Beautiful by any time period's standards... one of the nicest we have ever seen.

That's followed by a 1947 ad for a great piece of kitschy costume jewelry, The Genii Ring....this looks like such fun....


And finally one of our favorite houses from Paul Race/Howard Lamey and Spook Hill, just in time for Halloween decorating and planning.

Again, click on the photos and enjoy.

One of Croton's most notable residents, opera star Jessye Norman has died; she lived in White Gates, the former home of Candid Camera's Alan Funt.   Read more about Norman here.

A very sweet film to add to your Christmas viewing collection: CHRISTMAS ORANGES

AND SPEAKING OF CHRISTMAS ORANGES.....REMEMBERING: CANDY BOXES & ORANGES----Those of you who grew up with these things may think that it's silly to commemorate something so ubiquitous as Christmas candy boxes and oranges being given out at Christmas. But, like many other North American Christmas traditions, it is worth documenting now in case it goes the way of the putz* and the C-6 light bulb. And the candy box art, humble as it was, was as clear a reflection of its times as any greeting card art or Christmas tree decorations of the same period.
