As always, some wonderful finds, oldies but goodies and more. Click on the photos and links.
First up, a little St. Patrick's decorating, "stone" cottage by Howard Lamey...
It's followed by another Howard creation---one of our favorites---his "repro" of an outstanding vintage made in Japan Christmas putz house; click on the link to see it from start to finish--http://bit.ly/1iJgNEX
That's followed by a charming Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs set from 1957, courtesy of Croton's own SeriousToyz.com - and by special request---it turns out that one of our readers found the dwarfs at an estate sale but not the doll...
And finally, one of those back-page pulp magazine ads that probably promised more than it actually delivered; yes you too can have your own U-CONTROL 7 FOOT MONSTER GHOST!
Again, click on the photos and links.
Yes folks, it's always "honeycomb" season for many of us---and while the vintage pieces always have a certain allure, newer items can be just as much fun. Honeycomb also offers the perfect touch--in our opinion---to vintage (or new!) putz house displays. Here are some that won't break the bank--click on the link for offerings from PARTY CHEAP http://bit.ly/1iVH6rH

And if you're looking for old fashioned tin reflectors for your MIDGET lights, Blumchem has them -- made in Canada -- a little pricey -- star shapes only -- but the only ones we've found so far for the tiny Christmas lights--NOT CHEAP--but very effective especially on feather trees http://www.blumchen.com/christmas_shop_tin01.html
