First up, at last: a playset for "girls"! (Trigger warning for the politically correct folks, lol!)
From the 1963 Sears Toy Book, we bring you the SUBURBAN ESTATE SET...complete with swimming pool, horses, stone wall, boxwood fence, vegetable garden AND...a sports car! The maker's unknown...
It's followed by one of our favorite "window" putz houses from Howard Lamey; a large custom "Doll Shoppe" for a friend who collects...dolls. Beautiful when lit.
That's followed by THE HULA HOOP POLKA, a past find from one of Rob and Monica's estate "saling" adventures, CIRCA 1950'S
And if you haven't yet checked out Rob and Monica's blog--which details their travels and buys at estate and tag sales, don't delay!
Because you're missing out on some genuine mid-century modern fun. CLICK HERE.
And finally a great 1956 ad for Christmas package decorating with Scotch Tape. Again, click on the photos and links.
One of our favorite faux flatties from Howard-----the Caroling Family; click on the link for the pattern and to see it from start to finish HERE
